By Annabelle

When deciding on an apartment in Atlanta, Georgia Tech students have many factors to consider such as price, availability, and distance from classes to name a few. And with so many student apartments available in Midtown, it’s hard to know which property is right for you.

At Whistler, we are confident that our range of floor plan options, state-of-the-art amenities and prime location will suit the needs of any student. With this being said, we know how difficult it can be to narrow down your options or even compare one property to another. To help make this process easier, we are doing a side-by-side comparison of two options for student apartments in Midtown: Whistler and Here.
