Do you accept short-term leases?

12-month leases are standard but we do offer variable lease terms as market conditions allow.

What are your concession terms?

In the event there is a reduced market rate at the time you lease your new home, the concession is extended in consideration of 12-month minimum and is expected to be paid back in full if the lease term is not fulfilled.

George Mason University students, active-duty military, Fairfax County teachers, police and firefighters are eligible for a refunded application fee and refunded reservation fee. Residents may only take one concession or discount per apartment home.  This is our way of extending a sincere “thank you” for learning in, teaching in, and serving our community.
