The Edge @ 401 is a fantastic place to live, especially for students/people looking for their first apartment! The unit I lived in was recently renovated, so the appliances were brand new, and the entire kitchen was incredible. The way the apartment was laid out made it really easy to have guests over, and I loved being able to converse with friends and cook at the same time.
I know a few other reviews have mentioned pest problems, but in my experience, as long as you keep your space tidy/clean and aren't away for a long period of time (bugs in Tallahassee love dormant spaces and will eat anything that's accessible), you shouldn't have any problems!
As far as location goes, the apartment complex is a really convenient walk to a lot of FSU buildings, which is great for undergraduates and graduate students alike! My commute to Dodd Hall took less than ten minutes, and the walk was really nice. As a woman who lived alone, I never felt unsafe going to or from my apartment. And although The Edge is right next to a fraternity, the walls helped dampen the noise, and a white-noise machine made any party-related craziness hardly noticeable. The pool is also a definite plus, especially on hot days (so the majority of the year in Tallahassee).
The management team, Traci in particular, is also super helpful and easy to get a hold of. While rent is a bit on the higher side of things, I loved living in this complex, and highly recommend living at The Edge @ 401!
