"the alexan ambiance is second to none... 5 minutes to the galleria... 10 minute bus to the medical center... fitness center is immaculate... 5 star pool... penthouse suites with a downtown view... the only other apartment in town that holds a candle to the alexan is the vantage... the vantage is in the medical center on holcombe but doesn't have the restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops and juiceries that the alexan has... if you ride the bus or train... public transportation stops out front of the alexan every 15 minutes... the vantage has a bus stop that offers pickup only once an hour... the price is better at the alexan also the galleria view, medical center view, and downtown views are better than anywhere else in town... i would highly recommend the alexan to any friend or family member that is looking for an affordable place with great ambiance, view and location"
"I have not been here long, but so far I absolutely love living here. The community looks exactly like the pictures- really nice, updated units and amenities. My apartment was very clean and well taken care of upon move in. The staff has been very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to a friend any day! My only con is how far of a walk my unit is to the parking garage, but at least I am getting my steps in- ha!"
"I moved in one week ago, so far everything is great. The property is BEAUTIFUL! Really quiet and the staff are all extremely helpful and patient!!!! Looking forward to exploring all of the amenities!"
You were great! Thank you all for turning a horrible moving situation into helping me find a better luxury experience.
As busy as you were, you were attentive to me and made sure that all of my questions were answered. As a business owner, I know that customer service goes a long way, and you all have exceeded that.
I’m loving Alexan Southside Place."
"I love living here! Its such a great apartment with the gas stove and large bathroom, its a real luxury. The amenities are great and they do a great job of keeping it clean and quiet in the apartment which I greatly appreciate."
"Awesome place to call home with 5 star amenities! The staff is absolutely incredible and very helpful in every aspect. The maintenance team is always there when you need them and they are very quick!"
"Alexan is very appealing to the eye. Building, apartment and amenities are beautiful. But after living here a couple months you notice all the cracks. Management is very slow to assist in issues. For example, we had a pair of shoes stolen right outside our front door. Asked them to look at cameras and they said they’d get back to me. Been 3 months and no one has reached out to me. Walls are VERY thin. Goodluck if you have tenants living above you. Hallways always smell, dog areas are so muddy, security cameras are in the worse areas.."
"Great location and apartment! Thin walls so can hear the person living above me flush the toilet and walking around. Management has changed, and so in the middle of a transition. Otherwise, enjoy living here but definitely room for improvement!"
"Very nice, quiet community but definitely has a lot to work on. Definitely a nice location and rent seems reasonable. However pet fees are ridiculous considering there are only trash bags for dog amenities."
"Haven’t lived in a place with this type of service in years! Staff very friendly and helpful! I was very impressed with their communication and action when we had a few car break ins! This is the quickest and most effective response I’ve seen in apartment complexes!"
"The Alexan South Side is a beautiful complex with so many Class A Amenities. The location can’t be beat as it is within walking distance to many restaurants plus the Whole Foods is literally located across the street. The maintenance crew and staff are so attentive to the property and to the residents. I would highly recommend this apartment lifestyle to my friends."
"The amenities are great, the floor plant of the apt is great, maintenance, staff, external upkeep, all great!! The only major complaint I have is in regards to the roaches! When we looked at the apt there were 2 or 3 dead ones and they told us it was just because the apt had been closed for a while. Since we have moved in the roaches have been a problem! Pest control has come more than 4 times in 10 months. We are very very annoyed by the situation."
"Moving in was terrible because the loading dock door was broken and the low ceilings prevented me pulling the truck up to the elevator. Apartment complex also didn’t have a moving dolly I could borrow. It did not feel welcoming at all. But since moving in things have gone well. Great amenities and fast responses for maintenance requests."
"Just moved in this week. Facility is nice, parking is amble. So far so good- we shall see about the security issue. There are some online reviews which are not so favorable about recent break ins. Makes me worried a bit. But we shall see."
"Been here 2 months with my family. 1 Fire alarm. 2 break ins to the common areas. Stolen items that we pay to have as accommodations still have not been replaced. 20+ vehicles broken into. Common area printer hasn't worked for months per residents that have been here. Owners do not seem to care about their tenants. They say that they have hired security, I've never seen them. They've parked a cop car in the back in hopes to prevent future thefts. The hallways stink horribly. There are worms through out the hallways. Management is very good at making us aware when rent is due and that there are penalties for not paying on time. I am very disappointed."
"Need to be more proactive on maintenance and respect for rules. Managers should be more visible and responsive. Facilities are good, keep them clean and functional. Monitor areas less visible such as gym, mailbox, parking lot, etc."
"Loved our unit but...
*not very happy with inconsistencies in information while touring. This has made it a bit difficult to adjust to, now that we are living here and have to abide by rules we were not told about. We were blind sided and forced to agree to new terms at the time of lease signing.
*Not happy with short staff. Phones are never answered and management is bombarded with work. Which makes it very hard to communicate with them.
*Not happy with recent crime throughout the building and owners not making changes. Security is -2 stars.
*ButterflyMx machines seem to just be for show as they do not function properly. Elevators still allow access without use of keys/ ButterflyMx codes.
*Too high of a pet fee, considering there are no amenities for the pets. (Not even a designated dog park/ area.) Just trash bags."
"Great people who work there! Noise from construction has been a nightmare and a headache since we moved in. I don’t feel like we were informed about the type of and duration of construction to be had outside our apartment. Then again, maybe they truly didn’t know."
"I contacted the complex April 14th about parking and guests taking spots on my floor. I was told a parking sticker would be implemented. It is over a month later and nothing has been done. I was assured when I moved in over a year ago that I would be able to park on my floor, and feel safe walking into the complex. I have now had to park on the rooftop over 10 times. They have all of our vehicle information from when we moved in. The management here has not done their part to make sure we are safe."
"We love ALEXAN SOUTHSIDE! The property is beautiful and always well maintained. The maintenance staff are always prompt and the office staff are friendly and helpful.
The complex is conveniently located and feels like a resort. Love it here!"
"We have really loved living here! Amenities, apartments, and staff are all wonderful. I do wish they would have considered building the walls/floors between apartments thicker. It is very easy to hear your neighbors on all sides even if they aren’t being loud."
"Great location and amenities! The staff have always been helpful and easy to contact. five stars would be given if it wasn’t for the main gate having issues with staying closed appropriately. a sense of security is high on my list"
"I say this over and over again to people ask me, I wish I would’ve moved here sooner. We came from a 2700 square-foot house and downsized to just about 1300 ft.². We don’t miss the extra space from the house, and we love the luxury of living in a classy apartment property. The on-site staff and team are great. The location and walkability factor are a huge bonus for us as well."
"Excellent value, location, and amenities. New apartments with nice finishes and very reasonable prices for the surrounding area. They sound transfer between units is reasonable and most people are fairly quiet."
"The Alexan Southside has been a wonderful experience. I’ve lived her for about 6 months now and it’s been everything they promised to me. It’s clean, safe, quick responses. I would love to see more guests for pool, but that’s about it"
"So far, so good!!! I am loving our new apartment and the community amenities. Everyone seems to be friendly and the apartment itself is great!! My only wish is that the parking situation was different."
"Great place to live but management not very flexible. My apartment is right next to the contruction and there were terrible noises. I went to talked to management but they don't seem to care. Otherwise, very clean and friendly neighbors."
"We have been at the Alexan for six months now. I love the size of the apartment, the amenities, I think the up keep is awesome...The only reason that made me give 3.5 stars is that we had an cockroach issue as soon as we moved in. In the first 3 weeks we killed 6 roaches! The apartment was sprayed and it was perfect until this week, when I found (dead) a huge roach in the guest bathroom and one by the front door!!"
"Alexan Southside is very nice and comfortable place to call home with good technology.
The staff is professional, Rebecca in particular
is top notch, she has gone above and beyond to ensure we are happy in our new home. Spencer and Paighton helpfulness is much appreciated as well. The maintenance staff do an excellent job keeping the place as clean as possible, the rest is all up to us the residents to do our part in maintaining the complex clean."
"Nice place, reasonably well managed. Could do a better job with enforcing outside noise curfew in the common areas. Apartments could use proper window shades vs current light filtering shades. Also, apartment ceiling puck lights are way too dim."
"Alexan Southside Place has absolutely beautiful apartments and awesome amenities. The environment is very welcoming and the neighborhood couldn't be better. Some of the finishes seem lower end and the front desk staff is always busy so it's hard to get their undivided attention. Overall, a really great place to live. No place is perfect and I really do love living here."
"I’ve been living here for almost 6 months and it’s been a very positive experience! Maintenance is handled in a timely manner and Rebecca has been excellent from the beginning! She was one of the reasons why we chose this place and we do not regret at all!"
"This is a great place to live.
Location and amenities are amazing.
It’s quite private and extremely secure.
Onsite staff are very helpful, supportive and available.
One of the best is the location which provides access to shopping, food, services, exercise and support of my personal needs.
Thank you for being such a great place to live."
"I really love the people who work here. So genuinely nice and helpful. I wish the people in the complex would pick up after their dogs more often. It’s also unfortunate there is so much construction next to the apartment. In general this place offers a nice place to go home to."
"Rebecca has done an amazing job guiding us through the apartment selection and leasing process - she went above and beyond at every step to make our family feel incredibly welcome, and also to make communication/correspondence as easy and flexible as possible for us. She is an asset to your team! THANK YOU!!"
"I liked everything about the building. Except that one resident on my floor kept on letting his dog poo in the hall way without cleaning up... it’s been twice in two weeks now that I find dog poo in the hallway. I do not know who it is."
"We are pleased to live at The Alexan Southside Place. One of the great features to this community is the location. We didn’t realize how close we actually were to many of the best shopping places around town. We are literally within a two-mile walk tot the Rice Village and within close proximity to tons of restaurants. I highly recommend this apartment community."
"Really nice community. Spencer was great in helping us select the best apartment for our needs, and importantly meet our pet care needs. Looking forward to the resort style pool and grilling opportunities"
"We very recently moved into the Alexan at Southside Place. So far it has been a fabulous experience. The leasing staff was helpful during our move in and the apartment is beautiful!! The apartment (and complex) is very well thought out and you can tell they thought of just about everything! As is common in apartment living, you can hear you neighbors quite well (like can hear their conversations). I do wish a little more thought had gone into making the division between apartments a little thicker."
"Good location. And very clean apartments. Love the glass shower and brand new appliances. Staff has been friendly and maintenance has been quick to respond so far. Only complaint is very small closet in the 1 bedroom."
"So far my experience has been Amazing. My Fiancé and I fell in love with this place the moment we walked in. The staff is amazing. The Amenities are amazing and we have met some friendly residents already. Life is looking up living here"
"I felt at home the minute I walked in to my apartment. The stuff you are very friendly and welcoming. They made a process of moving and enjoyable. Accommodations here are impeccable. I look forward to enjoying the pool is all the amenities around. The workout gym has everything you need. I can’t say enough great things about this place. I know I’m going to love living here."
"I am absolutely loving living at Alexan Southside. It is generally very quiet (I live on the 4th floor) and my neighbors are all polite. I LOVE the aminities and the cleaning staff is seen DAILY keeping the grounds of the complex looking great. Overall I’d highly recommend this complex"
"I moved into this complex a few weeks ago, and it's been a wonderful experience. My move-in process was smooth, my apartment was ready for move in, and I'm really enjoying the neighborhood and the apartment amenities. I made a great choice by moving to this complex!"
"I moved in in August and so far my experience has been nothing but excellent. The complex is almost at capacity yet I rarely hear any noise from neighbors or other residents. All the staff in the office are friendly and go out of their way to meet your needs. The apartment is always spotless...I see the cleaning crew EVERY morning and they do a phenomenal job. I highly recommend Alexan Southside."
"It’s the perfect spot in the city, away from the noisy downtown and nearby beautiful parks, comercial malls, good restaurants, etc. However, not everything is like that. Thin walls between one apartment and another, windows without soundproofing and blinds not dark enough, doesn’t let you sleep well. Nevertheless, beautiful finishes, amenities and spaces give residents amazing experiences at the community of"
"Its a great place to live. Lots of amenities, clean spaces, friendly neighbors, and a nice management staff (that always seems to make an effort to resolve any issue). I highly recommend that you check out Alexan Southside Place."
"So far I am extremely impressed with Alexan Southside. It’s clean, quiet and such a beautiful place! When we moved in we had a few things that needed to be fixed. We put in a few maintance requests, and everything was done and fixed within a matter of 2 days. We love living here!!"
"Amenities and maintenance (Dario) are great! But walls are thinner than expected... I was told I would not be able to hear my upstairs neighbor, but I hear every step :(. I was misled on choosing my unit."
