Free parking for all! Tenants may park anywhere on the lot 24/7. Guests may only park on the lot during business hours (9am - 5pm).


Available at a charge of $20/month, these are much appreciated during those cold winter months, so get one while they last.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool season is from Memorial day to Labor Day. The pool is open from 10am - 10pm every day. There is a limit of two guests per tenant. Tenants must remain with their guest at all times.

Community Garden

During the spring, summer, and fall months, we have a community garden. There are 10 plots available on a first come first serve basis. The fee per plot is $10 to cover general maintenance and water costs. Some general tools are provided during initial planting, but the tenant will provide their own hand tools, seeds, starts, and stakes.

Storage Lockers

Our apartments have plenty of space, but if you find that you’ve got too much stuff, we have storage lockers available for $10 / month.

Bicycle Storage Rooms

Indoor bicycle storage rooms on each floor are available at no charge. 


We no longer allow pets of any kind.


There is single elevator in the lobby to the three floors. However, it is required that move-ins be done using the rear entrances of the building. All of the floors have a ground-level entrance for easy access. Utility moving carts are provided at the back doors for move-in purposes and daily use.
