I finally moved to Tampa this week and I've been doing some apartment hunting. I will be working in the Temple Terrace so I've been looking at apartments in the New Tampa area along Bruce B Downs.

I was impressed by what I saw at The Vinings at Hunter's Green but it will be a little stretch for my budget. I liked Andover Place/Adisson Park too however I'm skeptical about it's safety because the gates are left open and there is quite a number of buildings in this property. I've read some negative reviews on apartmentratings about both places. Jade at Tampa Palms looked nice too but no longer a gated community and you have to rent from private property owners.

I was just wondering if anyone here has opinions about any of these apartments. I'm looking for somewhere quiet and safe.

have you look at garden of crosscreek. it's one of my fav. out of all the apartments in new tampa that i've looked at while i was down there around end of May. it's a small apartment community so i kinda like that in a way because it makes me feel like i'm not really living in an apartment plus their 2 bedroom floor is 1440 sq ft.

I hear Richmond Place apartments just north of the strip mall by Best Buy is really nice. The one issue I can see from the street is that is just a short distance from Bruce B Downs and all that construction. The further up Bruce B. Downs you go, the longer your commute. My daughter had a teacher live off of Cross Creek. The school was in Lutz. I live in Tampa Palms and it would take me 10 to 15 minutes. It would take her 1 hour. Have you thought about looking for apartments in Temple Terrace? I have heard there are some really nice ones there.

Hello. I actually lived at The Gardens at Cross Creek....My husband and I lived there for 1 1/2 and we loved it there. We only moved because of job but we had a great experience. The office manager was always nice and resolved any issues we had. I always felt safe there. The down side is that they are a little pricey and trying to get out of cross creek on to Bruce B Downs can be a nightmare with all of the construction.
