The Wright Field Development Company was selected by the U.S. Air Force to privatize military housing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in Dayton, Ohio. The construction began in August 2002, and was successfully completed in December 2005. Miller-Valentine Group, Woolpert LLP, and Hunt Building Corporation formed the joint venture of Wright Field Development Company to pursue this project. Previously called Page Manor and Woodland Hills, the new housing development has been renamed.. "The Prairies at Wright Field" and "The Woods at Wright Field".VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Moving in was easy, Moving out was another story. We signed the mortgage for our house and we were in for a surprise, because the lease agreement signed was not over and since my wife did not have any separation orders we were still responsible for the remaining months until someone moves in by Ohio law. OK, fine. But when I showed up to pay the final bill the receptionist stated that I owed her $16,000 to include ALL of the remaining months and all of the incentive savings on rent that my wife had gotten by signing her lease over the past 3 years. Needless to say the JAG office will not help because the properties is under contract with the base and is protected from legal recourse, short of major unlawful acts apparently. Would recommend that anyone moving in simply because they do not charge a down payment, should look somewhere else and save themselves the headache.

When you first move into this property the people in the managment office seem nice and helpful, however as soon as you sign the lease agreement everything goes out the window. I have had maint over at my house no less than 25 times since I moved in almost two years ago, everything from gas leaks, pipe breaks, A/C went out at least 10 times, furnace broke twice, handles falling off doors, and multiple other issues. The people in the leasing office are rude, unproffesional, and have no respect for the military and overcharge the military compared to the civilians. They are by far the worse leasing company I have ever had interaction with, and I would not reccomend this property to anyone!

Pet owners are not required to follow the rules in the handbook. Known vicious breeds are allowed in base housing, it does not help that owners are allowed to leave dogs outside at all hours with no entertainment, no food or water, no shelter. If you have a puppy, or spunky smaller breed dog be prepared to constantly watch it. I would recommend keeping the security forces and animal patrol number handy. If everyone was to be made to follow the same pets rules, as stated in the handbook this post would not be needed.

I have lived here for almost 2 years. I love my home. The customer service from the office and maintenance is GREAT! I could not ask for any better. I have never had any issues with management from my home. I would reccomend living here to anyone that is PCS'ing here.

Agreed with the rater that said they were lied to by management. They renegotiated other tennant's rent down to the civilian rate and told us they didn't. LIE. Lease is very ambiguous when it comes to ending, so I explained my position to mgt and they said that I could try and fight it but no one ever wins...nice attitude. You MUST give 30 days notice to move out regardless of when agreement ends. BS! Charged add'l 2 days b/c they do not ck you out on weekends. Also, overcharged us the first month, and said nothing about it until we realized 10 months later. If you must live here know this: give 30 days notice, always ck adds for deals (they won't give them to you've signed already), get/make copies of everything!!

This place is worth it if you are a staff or below or 2dLt. I am a prior O-1 and was paying $1200 a month. Definitely could have found a better place to live in local community. The walls are paper thin. We could hear our neighbors doing EVERYTHING upstairs and downstairs. These places are going for $900 for civilians b/c that is what they are worth. It is obvious that the gvt does do some things better than private industry. Heed comments about the dishonest mgt. Very easy to move in, but difficult to live there. NEGOTIATE YOUR CONTRACT! They are a private company and can charge you whatever they want. Don't expect any help from Mil Housing. They are not affiliated anymore, although they were nice enough to tell me that there were quite a few complaints about PWF. Read contracts very carefully. Ensure that you go overboard on your initial inspections or they will take you on the way out. Note things like weeds in the garden, mold in bathroom, ANY stains on carpet, marks on counter...BUYER BEWARE!! Very friendly but very fake! Too many civilians, too. BTW, utilities are NOT cheaper! 140 per month if that is cheap to you. Cold air seeping in from windows was NEVER fixed!

To say that we have been disappointed with our experiance at PWF (residents for three years) would be an understatement. They treat their military like third class citizens, and appear to have no issues with misrepresenting themselves. This community looks nice from the outside, but if you wish to be treated with respect go somewhere else!

I am very disappointed in PWF. For a community that is subsidized by the military, they charge military considerably more than the non-military rental rates (Wright State students, etc). They misrepresented themselves to me (lied) on numerous occasions and make no apologies. Many other reasons to just Stay Away!!

This community definitely serves the military members and their families well. Enjoyed the cheaper utilities and the presencse of Security Forces. Liked being close to the Base and other places of interest.
