We're moving to the Springs in the next few weeks and besides doing research online until we're sick and/or cross-eyed, we've narrowed down our choices of apartments. We want to stay in the north/northwest area close to USAA.

We searched here in the other threads but all we found was answers that were really outdated and/or people posting their own threads instead of helping in the same thread.

Can anyone give us information about these complexes and especially the neighborhoods...what are they like?

We don't mind paying a bit extra and are looking for complexes where there are more professionals and less students.

Thanks!

Sagebrook is in a great location and very near USAA. COLO SPGS is not that huge a place, you could live most anywhere north of downtown and get to USAA in a max of 20 minutes. Some of the places you listed are almost walking distance, like Sagebrook.

I'd steer away from Briarglen, it's too close to Chapel Hills Mall and way too busy/noisy.

Consider too a place call Champions at Norwood and another one called The Commons at Briargate.

Here's an old thread about apartments north of or near USAA, some a few miles up Voyager Pkwy towards the USAFA.

Mike - saw Briarglen getting ripped in the apartmentratings.com website. Reviews seconded your opinion about tires and cars getting vandalized by thugs near the mall area.

We're checking Sagebrook and it seems to be the contender for now but we wouldn't mind a smaller and quieter apartment complex. We really dislike the "pigeon coop" look of the cookie cutter megaplexes but what can we do?

If anyone else can send any suggestions of other complexes, it would be most welcome. Thanks!
