“We have thoroughly enjoyed living in the Brickstone Apartments. The design is contemporary and interesting, unlike a “standard” apartment — no white walls or beige carpeting here. Also, the location is perfect, and the management is attentive and accessible. We recommend living in these apartments to anyone.”
– Andy and Claudia Lorentzen

“Leasing an apartment with Perennial Properties is a pleasure; unlike corporate landlords, the developer takes personal interest in tenant satisfaction while the manager is unusually gracious and responsive to residents. From my first visit, I have been equally impressed by their personal pride in maintaining the pristine condition of the premises which makes it a delight to enter the building at the end of a long day.”
– Prof K. Gibel Azoulay

“Living at The Brickstone at Woodland has been a wonderful experience. I have the luxury of living downtown but without the noise and busyness. I have an amazingly beautiful view inside and out. My favorite thing about living at The Brickstone is the interior design. The moment I walked in, I knew I wanted to live here. It is like walking into a luxurious loft with “brand-new” everything and brilliant colors! I would recommend living here to anyone!”
