I don't know the answer to this, but when I google it, the prices are so cheap in comparison to other complexes in the area. So that to me alone is a red flag.

I would fully expect to pay $1800 for a 1 bedroom if the area is decent.

Right now it says from my work it's 44 minutes to Deercreek (just popped in The Preserve at Deer Creek), and 42 minutes to my current apartment. -- Keep in mind that's 45 miles vs 11 miles ... see why my commute can't get much worse than it already is? Lol. The Promenade on Lyons is 40 minutes.

I've been looking at Indigo Station apartments online, which looks like it's in Deer Creek. Do you have any complexes you know in the areas up there that are nice?

Would you suggest Coconut Creek, or Deer Creek? And also with the two, are there any sketchy areas to steer clear from, or are they both pretty decent?
No on Indigo Station. Horrible horrible neighborhood.
Stay west of Military Trail or east of Federal in Deerfield.

I would highly recommend renting a condo or townhouse from a private owner within Deer Creek.

I’ve heard mixed things about the apartment complex in it. It’s nice though and I know for a fact there’s a shortage of parking.

Again, near The Promenade in Coconut Creek would be nice too.

Tivoli—a mess. A client of mine used to own there. Not the best construction. The area is mixed; there’s warehouses nearby, and sad-looking homes with no curb appeal. Tivoli tries to appear like an oasis in that midst, but it doesn’t work. My client had to sell at a loss; it was a short sale. She said she’d never live there again.

Another client of mine lives in Coconut Creek near The Promenade. Fantastic area for singles, couples starting out, people who are foodies. It is a newer area than Deer Creek. But Deer Creek is kept up nicely too.

You should check out both areas to start and see if either neighborhood gives you positive vibes. I also like The Cove section of Deerfield. Cool old Florida area with quaint shops and restaurants. Mostly SFH’s but there are some rentals. Commute would be awful, but you’d be so close to the beach and the action at Mizner in Boca is right up US1.

Thank you guys! Do you guys recommend any certain complexes near The Promenade? Just from a quick google search it looks like Casa Palma is nice.

That’s unfortunate. That complex looks super nice with the perfect style of apartments. Oh well.

I used to live in Broward and I still drive down four or five times a year to see clients. I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Coconut Creek a couple of years ago and chose that area because it is nice and safe. The hotel is about 5 minutes south of Casa Palma. When I was ready to decompress, I drove to The Promenade--it took me longer to park than drive there, about 10 minutes or so.

In that neighborhood, you're also close to Turtle Creek and the nice strip shopping center. Turtle Creek is a high-end development in Coral Springs. Since you're off of 441, you have your typical assortment of auto dealers, big box retailers (Office Depot, Home Depot) and for a touch of spice, the Seminole Casino (had a former client spend far too much time there).

Funny about Indigo Station. I stayed at the LaQuinta right behind it. It must be new. I don't remember it being there when I was at the hotel. It sounds like they're trying to redevelop that area if they built such a nice complex. As I was walking into the LaQuinta, another traveler looked at me and said, "well, this isn't so bad, is it?" But it was. I vowed I would never stay there again.

The area is just blah--nothing. I drove up to Mizner in Boca when I was ready to get a nice meal and people watch and relax. You don't have that in that neighborhood.

So that's my take, as someone who used to live in Broward, and stayed at hotels in two of the neighborhoods you are considering (although it sounds like you have written off Indigo Station.)

Oh I love this, thank you soooo much!! Great insight. Yes, Indigo Station is brand new was built in 2019, but I definitely know how it can be when trying to redevelop an area. Rarely works and not something I want to be a part of as I'll probably only rent a few more years before I decide to buy, so wouldn't even stay long enough to enjoy it if it were to revamp. The fact that they are giving 2 months rent free as a move in incentive was also a little alarming -- that's like almost a $4000 incentive ...

Love that you mentioned the casino lol. I've been to Seminole quite a few times and trust me, I noticed it was right around the corner haha. I love hearing all of this and now I think it's becoming quite clear to me the exact area I want to focus on. Also nice because Coconut Creek is slightly closer to work than Deerfield, and close enough to all the places I want to go (where my friends are located - Boca, Plantation, Boynton, Hollywood).

Still curious about certain complexes in the area but maybe eventually I'll start a new thread about that since I have an area pinpointed. I appreciate your insight more than you know, thank you!

That being said, if OPs friends live in east Boca, and she’s set on living near them, Deer Creek area would be a better fit drive wise
