Well for starters, they themselves are trying to "make the market" by raising their prices. They tried to raise our rent nearly 20%. They raised rent in previous years 10% every year. Our pay goes up 10% a year every year right? Yeah right... Their service sucks. They have a b*tch named Marryella with big fake plastics that talks down to everyone. She is such a BS artist, it's ridiculous. A lot of hardworking people have recently been forced to move and in spite of all their vacancies they keep trying to drive up prices after removing all their amenities and doubling the number of units on the property which created a parking and living space nightmare. This is typical of Braddock and Logan. The way they snuck this past with nefarious tactics is because they were supposed ot announce to tenants the new construction. They lied and delivered None of the tenant responses or objections to the city. Sadly, the tenant questionnaires were ALL ignored and mysteriously "Lost" as they moved forward. For 2 years their tenants have been enduring constrcution while they destroyed the basketball courts, the laundry rooms, the tennis courts, the park and playground, gym, the rec room and kitchen, the hot tub and 80 parking spaces to put up 3 story "High Density" housing. They are returning a lame, smaller "Olympic Style" pool (laughable) a small fitness room, and a small rec room, which I'm sure they will charge a pretty penny for. Meanwhile, the residents are all being forced to move out as they continue to increase utility and rent costs by 10 to 20% annually. Do they give residents more? No. Each year, they deliver less and less service, removing more and more amenities and charging more and more rent. Sad, really lame organization. When you live under Braddock and Logan's management. You are getting charged top dollar for NOTHING. Oh and they advertise Top Schools. Another Laugh. We tried to enroll our kids in the schools they brag about across the street and guess what, THOSE SCHOOLS ARE FULL. No transfers are being accepted for this or future school years. So you will drive your kids roughly 2 miles to the nearest "quality" elementary schools. Civic Square Apartments is total BS and fake and it's run by much of the same. Fake, plastic, liar... represented by Marryella. Another fake, plastic liar who wears TONS of makeup. Good Luck! Is that reason enough?

I've been here 4 years, ideal tenant. No noise, never late with rent. The only reason I've stayed here is because I'm usually traveling and have been able to negotiate my lease each year due to November being a terribly slow rental month each year.

A couple of things to consider:

Like any landlord, they will try to gouge you any chance they get, make sure you know your legal rights when moving out. The three in the office will all smile as you work through the paperwork, but if you haven't produced and retained everything in writing, expect to pay, pay, pay.

This place is jam-packed. Not to be confused with fully rented out, every unit is over capacity. I live above a one-bedroom apt with 6 tenants. Lots of families, lots of kids. Forget using the pool, and good luck getting a working washing machine. I currently do my laundry at 11pm.

Wood construction is average, but aged. My apartment is host to many, many spiders (at least they keep the ants at bay). Windows seal poorly and do not keep out the noise. This is a problem if you are near: Bernal Ave (lots of motorcycles), Case Street (middle school and railroad tracks), Sunol Ave (truck traffic), or near the rental office (pool and basketball court). This pretty much includes anywhere within the property.

They will however try to sell you on location, that being at the end of Main Street. Not bad if you can cross Bernal (no crosswalk). It's also across from the Pleasanton police station, not really a plus. Enjoy the sirens, the motorcycle cops use the place for their speed traps.

In my opinion, if you want to be walking distance from old-town Pleasanton, go further down Case Street where they have newer construction and smaller properties. I know some coworkers who speak more favorably of those units. In fact, am the last of my coworkers to remain at Civic Square.
