Great space, but noisy

This community is brand new, and has an amazing staff and wonderful amenities. They are pet friendly, have a gorgeous gym, and a beautiful, clean saltwater pool. There is an enormous diversity of residents, young and old, undergraduate students, young professionals, and retirees. The apartment layout is open, with ample natural light, many apartments overlooking community common space such as the well-manicured courtyard. An easy to use online portal makes bill management and payment very quick and simple. The building and parking deck use keycard entry for increased security. Finally, restaurants and shopping are within an easy walking distance from Berkshire Ninth. There is even a Harris Teeter right next door, and a great little burger place with local brews. This apartment would have been an easy five stars if it weren't for the noise issues. My apartment is above the dog park, which has no restricted hours, so the echo of barking dogs off the brick facade can be very loud and jarring, especially late at night or early morning. Also, this apartment complex is close the the railroad, so the sound of passing trains and their horns is a frequent occurrence. Finally, as there is no age restriction (other luxury apartments in the area are 21 ) college party noise occurs most days of the week. As with any apartment, who lives around you and how respectful they are is always a crapshoot, but I have noticed the sound of large-ish parties in multiple areas of the complex on any given night of the week. If you can tolerate the noise, the community offers a great experience.

Great Place

B9 has everything you could want in an apartment complex. The amenities are great, the staff is friendly and responsive, the location couldn’t be better, and the rates are reasonable. I highly recommend B9.

This is Dorm part two for kids at Duke. They get large groups of friends to move in and they all run up and down the hall into each other homes all hours of the night. Don't move here if you want somewhere that's quiet after 10 pm. Management just kept telling me to call the security guard which was no help. Glad I signed a short term lease and got out.

The administration of these apartments is abysmal.

The apartments in this building are very nice, and the amenities are great. There is also good security. The administration of this property, however, and the process of renting from them is a true nightmare. We paid so much in hidden fees, which can be directly linked to the failure of Berkshire to notify us properly. They also tried to charge us rent for days that we did not have the actual apartment. Dealing with leasing this apartment has been one of the worst, most frustrating processes of my life. Definitely recommend walking into the leasing office with your attorney.

Smoke and mirrors

Living here for a few months was one of the worst experiences of my life. They lure you in with a pretty facade and amenities and what you get is a poorly insulated apartment, you could hear every footstep above you, it was unbearable (especially for the price). I was also never told that breaking my lease, which I had to do for health reasons, would cost me over 3 months of penalty. Worst experience I've had renting an apartment. They'll tow your car too if you have any guests. Do not rent here. Loud parties too with Duke students and the train that comes by the back of the apartment at all hours. For such a beautiful place, it was truly a nightmare.
