We decided to go get some information on our own. We stopped by and took some pictures. If you have already been to Popolo Village there isn’t much new information here, but if you haven’t you could learn a lot.
Popolo Village is in the heart of Hyde Park. The location is actually pretty nice – very convenient to campus and you can get to I-35 quickly if you need to. It is a only a few blocks away from a bus stop if you are planning on using public transportation. It is across the street from a nursing home if that means anything.
These are not the newest or most luxurious buildings around. It was freshly painted when I visited so the exterior looks pretty nice. I wasn’t able to get a look inside an actual unit.
There are no community areas to gather. There are 15 parking spots for 14 units, so any guests will have to park on the street. There are 2 washers and dryers on premises (Pictures below). There isn’t central air; A/C comes from window units (also pictured below).
As far as security goes, There is obviously no doorman or anything and all the doors are on the exterior of the building, but Hyde Park is a pretty safe area of town. This place looks a bit sketchy, but I see no evidence from recent police reports that it is particularly dangerous.
