I've loved living at Grindstone Canyon. This is my 4th year here and I can't imagine living anywhere else in Columbia. My biggest priority is safety, and I've never had an issue at Grindstone. Staff and maintenance are awesome and everyone in the community is respectful and friendly.

I love Grindstone Apartments! Appreciate the staff, maintenance crew, and all the events that are held for residents! Love that the area is very quiet, no noise complaints or excessive partying.

Grindstone Canyon has been a great place to live under this new management. They clearly have a grasp on what their residents want in an apartment home and are willing to go the extra mile.
