The property is extremely beautiful and resourceful. We liked the way it has been maintained. The amenities like the mrkt , luxerone , the gym, the pool room are good and useful. My experience with the leasing staff (Skyler) was great. He made it real simple for us to get everything done online since we moved in from Texas. My experience with the Service staff was great too. They were extremely helpful and prompt in getting things fixed as early as they could. Overall, the experience has been good so far, except for a few bumps here and there, which we understand are bound since it is a new place we moved in to. Nikhil C ... Read More at aimco

The staff here are nice. The amenities are fantastic but the rent is high and ever increasing. They charge 100$ more for indoor parking than the garage down the street. The apartments are fantastic with lots of closet space and gas stoves. Just expensive, and with north and west tower coming down in the following years, I'm sure rent is going to spike up at a quicker than normal pace around here. ... Read More at aimco

Hello, all I say is I moved in on Monday after I signed my contract online on Sunday and I saw a one month free move in special on Tuesday ( all happened in 3 days). I really like my new apartment and I really wanted to enjoy my stay in Park Towne Place exactly feel this is my home. But to be honest, this promotion not offered to me and this is the only thing upset me. I believe it is not fair because I was planning to move in on April 10th initially but because the apartment I selected wasn't ready earlier, I moved to another one and two weeks earlier. If this wan't in my plan, you are right but I think you should have told me before about your promotion. I like your shuttle service, your safety and 24 hrs doorman, free Wifi and gym. I hope you could have a business room (free scanner and free copier even with limited number for each tenant). I also think this s ... Read More at aimco

Despite the large amount of negative reviews I read before joining the Park Towne Place community, I have had absolutely no issues living here. The concierge are nice and things seem to be fixed pretty quickly. I am definitely in one of the cheapest two-bedroom units available (not updated at all), but honestly I do question the amount they want to charge me to renew my lease, as I already feel like I am over-paying for what I get. Like I said, the service here is great, however the cost for the quality of the apartment and location does not add up. For the new rates the apartments will be going for (they did try and raise my renewal another $200/month for the same unit (same non-updated quality), I can easily live more conveniently downtown in a unit of similar quality as mine now. ...
