Did a walk through tour, very beautiful homes. The buildings are very secure as they all have key fobs for the doors and cameras throughout the property. The property manager was very professional and informative. While this will be our first time living on our own we felt very welcomed and right at home. Highly recommended

Update after living for one yea... read more

I have had a great time so far living in Canary Lofts! I had a short-turn around when applying to moving in & with that the staff was super organized and helpful getting me moved in. Very friendly & welcoming. The building is beautiful & clean.

I had to suddenly find a place to live after getting accepted off of the waitlist for medical school in Des Moines (I'm from the South). I wanted a safe, affordable, and quiet apartment. I called many other apartment complexes, but the property managers either weren't helpful, called me weeks later (after I signed at Canary already), or never called me back at all. This wasn't the case at all with Canary Lofts. The Property Manager (Cassidy) was helpful from the get go, and continues to be now that I'm a resident here. The ... read more
