I have a friend who had an apartment at the Regatta at Lake Lynn. Nice apartments and a very nice location in North Raleigh. They only left becasue they purchased a house. I don't know what part of the Triangle you need to be in since you've listed apartments from all over, but if North Raleigh is where you need to be, the Regatta would be a great choice.

All the areas listed are fine. As long as they are not to far away from RTP. Closer is always better, but cost, creditability and dependability are also important.

We relocated from Los Angeles to Cary last December. We thought we knew (and were leaving) traffic. Due to the explosive growth in this area (and yes, we contributed two more cars to the mix), you need to seriously understand what route you will be able to take to work. My commute from Cary (down by Apex) to RTP is a measly 11 miles, but I have three options:
1 lane road
2 lane road and
driving out of the way and doubling back on a highway.
All these routes are chock full of commuters too. If I leave at the wrong time, it can take 45-55 minutes to get to work in the morning and same for the drive home. If you have flexibilty in your work day then you can play with the commute times to figure out what works best for you. I know that I need to leave before 7am (especially now that the school buses are on the road in full force) or after 8:45am. If I leave between 7-8:45am, I can expect the 45-55 minute drive...did I mention for 11 miles?

The marquis on cary park doesnt seem like a great deal to me. The apartments are nice but they are kind of small. Its also not the best location for a commute to rtp

You might look at the Oaks at Weston. It's just down the street from the Marquis on Cary Parkway (don't get how this isn't a good location for commute to RTP.. seems like it would be a lot better than a commute from Garner, most of Raleigh, most of Cary). Be sure to contact apartment offices directly for discounts. One never, it seems, need pay the prices that are listed online.

Sumter was run down 20 years ago and is not a prime pick.

I've lived in Northridge Crossings 4 years and highly recommend it.

Thanks! Northridge seems like a pretty nice place... How is crime there? (I know it is all over the place but, is Northridge a targeted complex?) Parking?

I'm Neighborhood Watch captain and we've not had a meeting in 2 years. Virtually no crime.

Each unit has an alarm. You can get monitoring for a one time fee of $15.

High pressure sodium halide streetlights make the place look as bright as a Manhattan street.

Decent parking availability. We've never had to issue permits. No designated parking.

Great maintenance and friendly office staff. Clean pool.

Come by anytime day or night. You might find me in the fitness center between 4-6 AM.

Rents are reasonable and large square footage.
