It is a shit storm, my friend. $2/sq. ft. Everything is concrete so noise echos like crazy. If you get stuck with a loud neighbor above you, or next to you, you'll hear every noise they make. Pet on your floor? E'ryone will hear it bark. If you get trapped into the "cheaper" apartments that face the highway, be prepared for noise all day. The air conditioning system has some central thing (I don't know what the term) but if my neighbor upstairs smokes, I can smell it. If she/he cooks, I can sometimes smell it.
I just fucking hate that place.
I have read all 37 pages of this thread at one point or another but to me personally this is by far the highlight of it I lived in a place of similar construction in Austin for 8 months and everything he says is true.
