      Hey Reggie. Thank you for reaching out. We are always accepting pre-applications for our properties as we maintain a waiting list. Im not sure what the waiting list for these properties looks like right now, but we recommend putting a pre-application in and getting your name on the waiting list as a first step to getting an apartment. We will mail you the information.
