"Lots of Boxy Apartments--Perfect for Singles"

Pine Street in Downtown Concord is basically a long block filled with apartments. It breaks off from Willow Pass Road just after that boulevard crosses Highway 242. These apartments come in a wide variety of styles from newer boxy looking apartments with stucco walls to older looking boxy apartments--it is a little like what Henry Ford said about the Model-T, except in this case it is about apartments: You can have your boxy apartment in whatever shape you like, so long as they are boxy.

Prices vary, but you can find some pretty good deals here simply because this is Concord. I came here to see if we could find a 3-bedroom for my friend. There was one here for $1500 which is great for a 3-bedroom in Nor Cal. My friend was still worried about it being Concord, but it looked pretty nice.

It’s location is also great for singles or childless couples. You are right in Downtown Concord so you have lots of places to shop and a fair amount to do. (Though this is not, of course, the same as Walnut Creek.)

This is also a good spot from which to begin your commute to and from work. Since you are pretty close to Highway 680, you are in pretty good shape for heading down towards Walnut Creek and out towards Oakland.

Unfortunately, the poorly rated schools make this a less than ideal location for parents. Overall, however, an okay spot for singles.
