“I have been living at 1199 for almost 14 years now and I love it here. Walking distance to the train, great amenities and convenient shopping. I have 2 boys and 2 girls and we all love living here because of the sense of community. I have also worked for this company for 16 years and management staff is friendly and really helpful when I need them. All I can say is that it’s a great place to live and I’m glad I chose to raise my children here.”
