What our residents think

The space is nice, better size than any other studio I toured, and better value for that size. The staff are very nice. I’ve only had to submit a maintenance request once, and when I did, they responded and fixed my issue in a timely manner.

This is a nice place to live. No one steals my amazon packages!

I have absolutely loved living at the Frontenac for the past year! The service staff and leasing office ladies, Renee and Claire, are super responsive, the complex is clean and well maintained, and the community is cozy and quiet. No ridiculous overcharges/rents for bringing a cat along.
