My Husband and Myself have lived at Allure Apts for well over 3 years and are very disappointed with many aspects. We hardly have time to make use of the Amenities because we are both busy professionals. But from what we HAVE witnessed and what we have experienced, this place is the pits! As for the Clubhouse, the LOVELY Management charges a fee of $450 to rent it out - per event - that's a $250 deposit and a ""fee"" of $200"" - for an amenity that YOU should have rights to as a resident. Not to mention when you try to use the clubhouse, there are overfilled trashcans full of magets, and the TV & Stereo system hardly ever work. Oh, and if you do choose to rent the clubhouse, you are only allowed 10 guests for your event....REALLY, for $500???? The restrooms right outside the pool area - have never had permanent toilet paper holders/dispensers. Instead Management provides a LARGE roll of toilet paper that can be found rolling on the floor, behind the toilet seat, etc. Same with the paper towel dispensers - they are empty and Management places a stack of paper towels on the counter top. I have asked for this to be fixed more than 5 times - and still no results. No toilet seat covers, or hand soap. The pool is advertised as a ""heated pool"" and its rarely heated - and if & when you ask Management about the status, they always provide a LAME ""it's being maintenanced"" excuse???? The The gas grills - there is ALWAYS one out of order, and it takes Management FOREVER to get items fixed. there are vases that are not weighed down and have been broken several times and glued back together. You would think they would be replaced. The ""Business Center"" has a broken printer that has NEVER been replaced, and internet connection that requires a password - when you ask the Offiice Staff, they state they have no idea what the password is. Parking is an issue, but mainly because Management does NOT reinforce it as they should. There is also a problem with dog feces odor seeping thru the hallway carpets & cigarrette and WEED - yes marijuana - stench throughout the staircases and hallways! Clearly the Management team has stopped doing background checks on the Tenants because MOST RECENTLY, we had Orange P.D. Detectives & Investigators knocking on our door about neighbors use/distribution of illegal substances. There are soo many reasons that this place is despicable - but I don't want to be typing all day. Whenever I see potential new tenants I think - ""You Poor People."" FYI, they have ALWAYS had a grat Maintenance Team - but if and when something does NOT get Maintenanced, it's only because Management does NOT allow them to do so! When I run into other tenants that have been there as long as I have, they have the EXACT SAME COMMENTS and CONCERNS as we do. The APARTMENT has wonderful amenities and is spacious and quiet, but never-the-less, we are moving out ASAP :-D

For anyone who does not do their homework and feels these people are to nice and its to good to be true - that is exactly correct. Do research on Allure and furthemore do research on Riverstone Residential Group.\n\nAllure is AWFUL and I never took possession of my apartment but they cashed my cashier check. They are hoping because they get people in ""early"" to secure an apartment they have you hooked.\n\nAWFUL, AWFUL. Lots of really nice places areound with much better reputation.

it's definitely expensive (I don't know what the $1600 represents, since our 1br+loft unit is $2100). in general it's not too loud considering how many shared walls we have, and the location is good. amenities are not too bad, obviously they are selling the marble kitchens and every unit has a balcony which is pretty good. they do give you an outside storage closet but other than that the closet space is relatively tight.

maintenance is the bare minimum (one of our bathroom doors won't shut when it rains, and bathroom fan is faulty which they never fixed). the handle on our kitchen faucet popped off, and bottom line I didn't want to deal with them so I fixed it myself. security has been mediocre and parking is a relative pain for any visitor since there's no street parking allowed. the pool is nice in the summer though small and people can't follow simple rules, and the little gym is OK, for the bare minimum. I was waiting to see how they would keep that up over time, which apparently is the usual you see at most complexes, oh this machine broke someone's going to come fix it eventually. I purposely have an outside gym membership so I don't have to over rely on that factor. also, be ready for the occassional fire alarm false alarms at 3am.

one of the real downsides is the TV service they contracted with. AT&T (a multi-unit service that goes through a main satellite dish) is just awful. it used to be semi-reliable, but our service went out three times in one week and they couldn't fix it despite many calls. and make no bones about it, it is EXPENSIVE!! we were paying $70 for two TV's, the basic, plus a few sports channels, no DVR, and got another notice that they were raising the price another $5 this month. right after we cancelled, luckily.

Time Warner, etc is not available though the management said they are trying to switch over. I think TW has to run some cable from the street first, before that can happen.

this is the 3rd management since I've been here (just over a year). the latest group is putting forth an effort and not the worst to deal with, as with some of the a) incompetents and b) dolittles of the past. but bottom line there is not much sense of "community". most of our neighbors moved out, which is another good/bad. it's a little creepy when it feels like you're living in a vacant hotel, but apparently some decent people just moved in next door so we'll see. there are going to be some bad seeds no matter what, including annoying college kids who don't care about anything. but I don't think creating more of a sense of community would be super difficult to fix.

although a bit pricey (1600 for 1bed/1loft) allure apartments has a great environment. security is tight, and there is a workout room, with a pool and spa. parking is good for residents, but more problematic for guests. overall a great place to live. i lived here for a year.
