We moved into the Penn next to the Highland Building last June. From the very beginning, we loved our experience. Our loft-style apartment was finished with all the conveniences we have grown accustomed to over the past few years of renting apartments in the South. As Texas natives, we were used to wide space, natural light, washer/dryer, parking lots, updated fixtures and excellent workout facilities. The Penn delivered on all of these amenities with an excellent staff to assist.- Emily - Google

I've been living here for almost 3 years now and just renewed my lease for a fourth. Besides the apartments themselves being beautiful, renovated, and spacious, the building offers many amenities and the staff is phenomenal. Maintenance requests are resolved within 24 hours most times and they go above and beyond what you ask (for example, last time my shower drain wasnt working they also upgraded my shower head). The staff really goes out of their way to create a great community atmosphere.- Morgan - Google

I moved in to Walnut on Highland right when it opened before construction was even completed. I stayed for 6 years which is in my life (no joke) is the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. The apartment layout was fantastic and the area around the apartment exploded with restaurants and shops to the point I rarely needed a car. City living at its finest with on site parking garage and an amazing staff. It was great seeing Ed and Archie and the security staff daily and they all respond quickly.- Katie - Google

I have really enjoyed living here. It is a really beautiful building and the apartments are modern and spacious - allowing me room to have a mini studio which is an amazing asset for an artist. I love this neighborhood - great restaurants and as you continue up the street there are many great options. Wholefoods, Trader Joes, and Target are super close and convenient. I love having onsite parking and the Walnut on Highland team make everything really easy.- Christian - Facebook
The staff is super friendly and always organizing great community events. This is probably the only apartment I've ever lived in where I actually became good friends with many of the neighbors. The units are nice. Be sure to factor in the heating costs when you're comparing rent prices. If this place is in budget for you, you'll have a great time here.- Terry - Google
