Hello,
I am looking to move into a rental this upcoming fall. I was told about the Reserve at Eisenhower which is within walking distance to the Van Dorn Metro. Is this a good area? I would like to find a place that is not a high rise that will accept my 40 pound dog. I am open to any area as long as it is within walking distance to a blue or orange line, may even red.

The only real knock on that area is the industrial character of Eisenhower Ave. There's an asphalt plant just down the road from that complex. I'm not sure if it's close enough that you can actually smell it, but it's definitely something to investigate. I know the residents of Cameron Station who live near the plant have complained about it in the past.

It is a safe area, however, and there are usually people walking back and forth between the complex and Metro, so you will not be alone. There's also a bus that goes from Van Dorn Metro down Eisenhower Ave. if you do not feel comfortable with the walk.

That asphalt plant has been there for 50+ years, and some builder plopped down some real estate next door 5 years ago, and people are complaining about the smell. I don't understand how you cannot notice that plant when you're looking at town houses. And why would some builder build a community so close to that place just amazes me. Good luck on your search
