When relocating to the St. Louis area I looked at many properties. I found Vanguard to be in a great location, right of the hwy & close to the airport which is important to me because I fly every week. Vanguard offers numerous floor plans and the property felt very safe and is very clean. They also have a beautiful fitness center and pool and a dog park. Since moving in, management has been very quick and professional at responding to any problems Ive had. Im very happy in my choice with Vanguard.

AMAZING!!! In my hunt for a place to stay in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, I visited/interviewed over 30 different complexes before selecting Vanguard Crossing. There are too many reasons to list here for why I made this decision, but here are a couple of them that put this complex far above the others. First of all, I feel totally safe here. The complex is very well lit and surrounded by an attractive fence on 3-sides. Each building is also secure, requiring a fob or key code access to enter. The fact that each unit has a full-size washer/dryer was also a huge selling point. Not having to take my laundry to a central location and share laundry facilities is wonderful. Additionally, Vanguard is very pet friendly!! Ensuring that my entire family could live here, including my pet family, was a definite plus. They have a pet spa for you to groom you pet, an enclosed pet park, and plenty of walking space for them to get fresh air and exercise. There are several pet owners in the complex, all of whom are very respectful. Finally, the management and maintenance staffs are absolutely the best I have encountered. They always greet you when they see you out and are professional and prompt in responding to you every need. You do NOT find this type of dedication and friendliness everywhere. I would highly recommend Vanguard Crossing to anyone seeking an upscale place to live! LOVE IT and so will you.

When I read the reviews that give Vanguard Crossing a low rating they all have one thing in common, they feel as if they got a bum deal when they left here for one reason or another. In my view these are sour grapes. You cant expect to live in a luxury apartment, then trash it on the way out when moving and not expect Vanguard to protect their property by making you restore it to the condition it was in when you moved in. So all of those comments I disregard. All of the comments regarding the gyms, grounds, pool, and other amenities are outstanding. Therefore, I just want to say that this complex is extraordinary. The staff, the buildings, and the neighbors all are above average, which is something you should expect when living in a luxury complex. It is pet friendly and close to everything you could possibly need. Being right off 170 it is also a short commute to downtown, or airport. I am so glad I made the decision to move up and into Vanguard Crossing. I should have done this sooner.

From the beautifully manicured grounds, to the immaculately kept buildings and public spaces, you will just enjoy living here. The business manager is extremely professional, while warm, friendly, and concerned. Each of the other staff members are just as polite and accommodating. They all are very attentive and do what they can to make this community living a pleasant experience for all. The floor plan selections are numerous ranging from studio to 3-bedrooms. They are laid out nicely, making each look inviting. The stainless steel electric appliances are high end adding beauty to an already spacious kitchen with ample cabinet space and granite countertops! The bathrooms are oversized and provide several luxury touches, like heated towel racks, soaking tubs, and built-in televisions (yes in your master bath!!). The swimming pool area is something out of a resort spa! Saltwater pool, with several shallow areas for lounging in the water on one of their many in pool lounge-chairs. Cabanas, gas grills, and marvelous sculptures complete the serene getaway in the heart of the complex. The major selling feature though for me is that they are pet friendly, with ample outdoor space for your fur-babies to walk or enjoy the enclosed park area when they just need a space to run, exercise, and play. Additionally, there are 2 state-of-the art workout areas with all of the equipment to maintain a healthy body. Couple all of this with covered garage parking and you have the perfect place to live! Within walking distance to shopping. I truly feel safe and spoiled here and couldnt imagine having all of these amazing amenities for such a reasonable price. My wife and I, alone with our 2 dogs fell in love with this place the moment we saw it and have grown to love it more since weve moved in and gotten to know the staff and our neighbors.

We love, love, LOVE our apartment. The floor plan selection here was wonderful, and we are thrilled with our choice! Everyone from the great maintenance crew to those that work in the front office are professional and friendly. Pet friendly, there is a well-lit dog park, and "doody stations" placed throughout the property. There is ample covered parking and trash is whisked away almost as soon as it is set in the hallway. Quiet and spectacular, Vanguard Crossing has made downsizing from our Compton Heights home a pleasure!

I love these apartments. We were initially not approved but got it resolved within a few days and got approved in a timely manner. Staff has been so far good, I haven't really needed anyone but if I had questions, they were answered. Everything down to the smallest details has been thought about and I feel this is one of the best locations for living. I can't wait for the pool season to start. I don't have one bad thing to say about this place so far.

The absolute nicest apartment complex I've ever lived in. The amenities are great, the gym is awesome. The staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. The selling point for me was how pet friendly the complex is! It's so nice to have a place to take your dog out, and meet other pet owners! The dog park (Bark Park) is great also, always good to keep your pet socialized. The grounds are kept immaculate by a very responsive maintenance and cleaning crew, the hallways are vacuumed like twice a week at least! Trash pickup is PRICELESS in my opinion. I've lived in a lot of different apartments, some overseas also, and Vanguard rates just as high or higher than them. The apartments themselves being brand new when I moved in was a huge plus also, the modern design in the apartment is great, the kitchen is just perfect for me! I highly recommend living at Vanguard!

I moved here from Cincinnati at the end of March and just love it! I am a retired architect and very picky about details. Vanguard Crossing totally is about the details from the kitchen (great layout, perfect appliances) the master bath with towel warmer, TV above the sink, huge tub/shower and excellent hardware. Doors, closets and materials are all first class. And then there is the pool courtyard: WOW can hardly wait for the weather to cooperate so we can use it. Finally the service/ they are on it, from the front office to Kenny and Jesse who keep the whole place looking great. Glad to be a resident here in this wonderful, diverse community.

I'm impressed. This is an exceptional development. From the design, to the staff to the follow through, this is professionally done. This apartment community has well laid out floor plans as well as generously appointed common areas that all residents are encouraged to use. One can choose to live in a quiet unit away from the crowd, or in a unit in the midst of a vibrant environment. This is a cosmopolitan community, with a broad demographic of residents. The development welcomes pets, but provides a separate floor that is pet-free (dogs love it here). The leasing staff is friendly and the maintenance staff is efficient, consistently. Guests are impressed as well, and enjoy visiting the development. I'd like to see more developments like this in St Louis. It's a great place to live. By the way, I'm a bit discriminating myself, as I am also a real estate developer. I have no financial interest in this project at all. Just impressed by how it is executed.
