"Crowded But Inexpensive"

Came here to Adelaide Street to look at an apartment. This is just a one block street running from Clayton to Laguna in the Ellis Lake neighborhood. If you know this area, you know that it is pretty much all apartment buildings right around here.

The apartment that I looked at was for less than $900 for a one-bedroom, which is pretty good for this area where most one-bedrooms are slightly higher (around $1000 mostly).

Why the lower price?

These are much older apartments--very worn looking and with a very stacked up feel. You just feel squeezed together with your neighbors.

The other drawbacks of Adelaide Street are the poor schools and the fear of crime. As to the schools Meadow Homes Elementary with an API of 3 is pretty typical. Though not bottom basement, it is definitely on the weaker side in terms of education.

The upside of this area is that you are right by the downtown area of Concord where you can go to the movieplex or grab a nice bite to eat at the Spaghetti Factory. There are also a ton of shops, Water World and lots of those kinds of places all around.

Overall, I would recommend this area for singles just getting going with their lives.
