The Boardwalk or Icon on Bond, both on Monroe. You really should come for an exploratory visit to get firsthand info and a feel for the place.

we have friends who live at the Boardwalk condos... they're really nice the brick walls are cool, and though our river isn't much to look at, the game room is sweet.

Thanks a lot everyone. I have much better picture in mind now that I have some idea about the place.
@redgoast I checked out boardwalk condos website, looks like they are for sale. Are there any good rental options in Heritage Hill ?

Rentgr.com

I see many of their signs up in yards around the neighborhood. Particulary in May and August when kids are leaving or coming back for school. Craigslist has many listings just look.for heritage hill listings, and there are often hand.made signs out front of homes too. Heritage hill is the older part of town so its all big houses converted to apartments as opposed to complexes. It can be hit or miss but those are good places to start.

My wife and I rent a 1bdrm for $700 all utilities and A/C included , one parking space and coin-op laundry on site. In a building with 3 units. Before that we had a 2bdrm no utilities, 2 parking spaces, on site laundry in a art deco building with hardwood floors for $800 a month. Before that we were in a big 2bdrm all utilities including.A/C, private driveway, & laundry for $1100/month... size, location, amenities, and prices vary which gives you many options.


Best of luck let us know if you find something you like, stick around the forum if you enjoy the area.

Ah I hadn't heard that. I think overall its a good thing for the area. Developing that location will really help the businesses down there.

To the OP, I lived downtown for 3-4 years and never had the slightest problem. Statistically it's one of the safest parts of GR. There are some crazy people that live in a section 8 building on Monroe Center, but they are generally harmless and the police station is literally right across the street from it.

Like Redgoast said you can't be totally car-less in GR from a practical standpoint, but there were plenty of weekends where I never touched my car and just walked everywhere.

hahahaha I hate everything about McFaddens

Everything else that was said in the quote above -- what he said
