FAQ

How do I get my name on the waiting list?
You need to complete MKC’s waiting list application form and mail or drop it off with a $500 deposit. This deposit is fully refundable if you want to remove your name from the list. Once you are ready to move in, the $500 waiting list deposit becomes your damage deposit.
