Oh yeah, I used to buy Oxycontins back there.


Also knew a couple strippers from the GC that i'd party with that lived there.


Friend got robbed there after Katrina.


Sounds like everything that goes on here in a day lol. Some people are so sloppy with their obvious drug deals it is almost comical Glad to leave, we have police patrolling all night after about 6 only in our apartment. I understand it's necessary b/c of the crime but I have never lived in such a place as this, bad decision making on my part.

My brother lived there for a year in ~2004. It wasn't the nicest place for sure, but it was no where near the shite hole you describe it as now.


It really is now, a lot of people have simply broken their leases. I have had three neighbors that live within 30 feet of my apartment get broken into and just leave. If you drive thru you can see multiple vacant units and they are desperate to fill them... which is a problem b/c I doubt they really do the background checks they claim to do..

No one I know. But I've been on calls in that area and see it pop up on reports frequently.

I was looking for a 1BR earlier and this complex came across my list. I didn't know much about it and made my top 5. I'm glad I found the place I did because it looks like I dodged a bullet.

It was great back in the 80's. The bar was home to a lot of politicians back in the day.

It started going way down hill after that bar burned down or was set on fire. Depends on who you ask

Buddy Roemer used to pull some serious tail there.

This guy. My roommate and I lived there for two years, then my wife and I lived there for a year. Once upon a time, the complex was not a college complex, which is why my roommate and I moved there. We had a pretty nice apartment, all things considered. Rent was cheap and we got a far bigger place than if we'd of been by campus. Never had any problems with theft. Then, another company bought it out and pushed the college complex. Next thing you know, loud parties, lots of bull shite. I wouldn't recommend anyone staying there now.

Oh shite. Those are the apartments I hooked up with some back chick in. She was sexy, but didn't have a car and worked at hooters 6 days a week.

I gotta be honest, I wouldn't fricking live there.

Yes, Roemer used to go there all the time. He, the owner, and a few others would play poker on Friday nights. The owner said Roemer was a darned good player, too.

I used to eat lunch in that bar all the time. I miss it.

I was stabbed in their parking lot while I was walking out to my car back in 2006. Good times.

Sounds like Section 8 is coming. GTFO while you can. BTW, the bar was called Fairway View as well. And was awesome back in the day. The owner burned it down in 2006. The idea that the fire was accidental makes me laugh. Looks like he saw the writing on the wall.

My brother-in-law's firebird was stolen from there in 2003. Probably the most devastated I've ever seen him.
