Avant is the new name on the Mark-Taylor site for the former Broadstone Fashion center. My guess is that the reviews won’t be linked. All that I see is the same photos since the property was new, along with the same overstated value of life you are led to believe will come if you sign. The reality is that the complex is falling apart, starlightinvest jumped in and bought it and gave Mark-Taylor the instructions to reduce costs and increase the rent (which is what they say on the site). Be aware of what you are signing up for, look before you leap.
A few key things to notice when you visit:
1. The clubhouse is manicured, so at first glance you are wowed, but it is run like it is a showroom for selling and you're just part of the sales pitch. Don't be fooled about the coffee and the residence events (that are usually wrapped around Alcoholic Beverages; instead of a quiet, less noisy event, like bingo game or book club). You are paying for them, that is why the rent always goes up whether you use or go to these events. It is kind of like the Valet Trash money grab. We are paying for dumpsters all around the property, but they decided we also need the Valet Trash too. Not you can have it if you want to use it and pay for it, Nope.
2. The janitor(s) keep getting reduced and reduced and it shows.
3. Look close at the unit you will be put into. Proceed with caution; these have been lived in and are not very well constructed.
4. Listen, this place gets very loud with all the barking dogs, it sounds like a kennel. There is loud music playing throughout the office and public areas, so peace and quiet while trying to sign a lease or do anything is not possible.
