Corinthian Gardens Apartments

Property Description

If you’ve lived here or visited before, prepare to be amazed by our new look!

Corinthian Gardens has embarked on a full-scale, top-to-bottom, inside- and outside renovation!  We’re updating everything you see and everything you don’t see, including enlarging some of the studios into 1 bedroom apartments!  We’re replacing all flooring, appliances and cabinetry plus we’re adding Dishwashers, Washers and Dryers to each apartment.  Each apartment will now get its own storage unit as well!  As for the things you don’t see, we’re upgrading HVAC equipment and plumbing and adding free building-wide WiFi.  

Renovations are set to conclude in 2018, but we have renovated apartments that we’re leasing on a wait list basis, so put your application in today!
