"Kind of Dingy But Close Downtown Walnut Creek"

Near Court is just a little cul-de-sac just off Creekside Blvd.--which you may know from my other review is basically just a long apartment row. Near Court is pretty much the same thing. Basically for 360 degrees all you see is boxy apartment buildings. The only difference from the apartments on Creekside is that these apartments are a little bit taller--maybe 4 or 5 stories high.

Overall they still retain that same dingy sort of feel that the apartments on Creekside do. Apartments here run about the same as well with a one-bedroom running between $1150 and $1250.

The schools nearby are great and crime is relatively low and you are in walking distance of Downtown Walnut Creek, so this is definitely a nice spot in terms of its proximity to some high benefit areas. But the apartments don’t really match the location. You really don’t feel like you are in a nice area on Near Court.

Despite this negative aspect, Near Court is still a pretty good spot if you are okay with that trade off.
