One of the best neighborhoods in town! The leasing staff is friendly, helpful, and throw great community events. They have all the amenities I would expect from a luxury apartment building. Pets allowed as well!

The Domain is doing a great job. The staff is helpful and always very knowledgeable. I like the pool a lot and I also appreciate the free garbage pickup.

This is a wonderful place to live. The pool, clubhouse, and community events that are offered to residents are just a few perks. My major draw to Grindstone Canyon was that it is a pet friendly community.
