I am relocating from Buffalo, NY to NC for a traveling therapy position. I was interested in living at the City View apartments in Greensboro and wanted to converse with someone who may know the area.

Hello, I have a friend from Buffalo who lives here now and who can talk to you if you like. I can let you know about Greensboro as well. Are you in PT, OT, Nursing or Speech?

Lou

Hi Buffalo80! I actually live at CityView Apartments. CityView is located in the southeast quadrant of downtown in a neighborhood called Southside. Southside is a very good area and even includes an upscale wine/cafe restaurant called The Press. Thursdays and weekends are live jazz nights there. Over the past several years Southside has received several national awards and is now considered a template for infill development across the southeast.

Restaurants, bars and nightclubs are a very short walk away from City View Apartments so its definately a very urban location. I do love the apartment amenities such as the clubhouse which has 3 big screen tvs on the wall, pool table, cardio room, business and Playstation/Wii room. There is a rooftop deck ontop of the clubhouse over looking the pool. There is a 3rd phase to CityView Apartments which will include retail, a restaurant with outdoor seating and maybe a small grocery store.

I've been here since the first phase of the complex opened back in December of last year and I can tell you that I love it. Every Friday there is a social in the clubhouse for all the CityView residents with free food, beer and wine available. The city is currently negotiating with the railroad company to purchase a big rail yard next to CityView Apartments and the city wants to convert it to a park for Southside and downtown residents. The renderings that I've seen showed a large pond there. I do know that its like pulling teeth to get the railroad company to sell their property even if its not being utilized.

In case you havent been down here to see the apartments yet, here are some few pictures.

My husband lived there for 3 months while we waited to sell our home in GA and the whole fam could move. He loved it. The apartments are beautiful, and the area is very nice. One thing to keep in mind: the train in downtown is DIRECTLY behind the apartments, so you will have to get used to hearing it pass about every hour or two. It was bothersome the first week or so to him, but after a while you just get used to it and at times it kinda gets nice. Makes you feel like you're in the city for sure! My children and I would come stay with him at times and never felt unsafe, and this is in the HEART of the downtown area. Let me say I never would have felt that way in the same apartment in the HEART of downtown Atlanta!
Hope this helps!

Yea there is the issue with the trains. However I guess it depends on which building or unit that you are in. I live in the studio apartment where the bedroom is on the opposite end of the apartment away from the train station. I close my doors at night and the train doesnt bother me at all. The newest buildings that are under construction are the furtherest aways from the tracks so noise may not be an issue with you.

LOL!! Well I just cant help myself, I love downtown

I'd much rather have trains and airplanes than a highway next to my bedroom any day! Trains are nostalgic, and with airplanes I always think, "well, there goes 200 hundred stories right on by, everyone is going somewhere, thinking something." But with a highway? I just think of stinky cars and backaching commutes. So Trains! Planes! And more Trains and Planes!

Id rather have the trains go by too. But the trains really arent that bad though.

I know when I first saw the model units, I noticed that it was pure coincidence that one of the models had the same living room tables that I had purchased in Lexington about a month before I moved in. The only thing is that I purchased the additional matching sofa table/wine rack which the model unit didnt have.
