Before (actual name deleted from this post), other wise known as (actual name deleted from this post) took over in January of 2007, The Park Apartments managed my building at (actual address deleted from this post) in Loring Park and were the best Property Management team I have ever rented from. I moved into my apartment in February of 2005 and was always impressed with the professionalism and care to detail the The Park apartments provided. I am physically challenged and must live in an apartment building with an elevator. The apartment building where I currently live was the only apartment building that The Park Apartments managed that had an elevator or I would move to an apartment building under The Park Apartments management. Unfortunately, there are folks out there who are confusing the two management companies and are providing false information.
If you're looking for a spacious apartment with hardwood floors, lots of built-in cabinetry, all in a convenient location - look no further. West 15th Street can be a little loud due to police & fire routes, but most people acclimate after a month or two. I've lived here over 3 years and thoroughly enjoy the building; management is cool; and proximity to downtown & Loring Park is awesome.
There is a huge and unfortunate misunderstanding regarding the reputation and integrity of the properties and management of The Park Apartments. First of all the business name is just that: "The Park Apartments". NOT "Park Apartments", "Park II", "Park III', and DEFINITELY NOT "actual name deleted from this post". (actual name deleted from this post) is a holding company that takes over management when an owner goes into foreclosure or get in other legal problems. There have never been any such actions toward any property that The Park Apartments has ever owned. Having lived at both 2100 Pleasant Ave South at the time it was going to (actual name deleted from this post), and for the past 18 months at a property The Park Apartments owns and maintains (excellently, I might add) I can tell you that they are DEFINITELY not the same owners. We have never once had a problem with management, communication, security, maintenance or anything else associated with our experience here (quite the contrary to experience with the management of the other company, which it is being confused with). We have only ever needed to call maintenance on two occasions- the first was responded to within 24 hours, and the second was within 30 minutes. All doors are secure, buildings are well-lit inside and out, snow is shoveled before 6 AM every time it snows- and swept when we only get a dusting. All units received a letter from management earlier this year when (management's) water bill increased, all units were visited by a plumber looking for any sign of leaks or drips, and all repairs made promptly. I could not recommend The Park Apartments high enough. One last point: if you for whatever reason become upset enough at your landlord to write a scathing review in an online forum, take care enough to actually KNOW who your landlord is, and be careful enough to post timing an accurate spot, just typing "Park" in this site came up with literally hundreds of suggestions, and numerous in this area.
We moved to Minneapolis a year ago and happened upon the Park Apartments. We ended up renting a unit in the Prospect Park neighborhood. The management has been attentive to our 2 maintenance calls - both issues were resolved within 24 hours. Common areas are cleaned regularly and the yard is always trim. This past winter they even installed a high efficiency furnace for us. We pay for our own heat in this unit, but it has new windows and insulation and was very reasonable.
It sounds like others have had less than stellar experiences with the management, but we're pleased as punch and plan to stay another year or two. Our neighbors seem to be similarly inclined.
I can't say enough about how happy we have been at the Medicine Lake Cottages! If I could buy this place I would!! The management is always quick to respond and maintenance goes above and beyond. Thanks TOM!!! We were able to move from one cottage to another and the transition was made with ease. I can't thank them enough and I couldn't be happier with the location and community. A resort in the City! I also have as friend who also lives in one of the apartments next to the Office Management location. He has been there several years and has no intention of leaving. The charm and price you can't beat!
I live here for four years management awesome the buildings are great
I agree with the other review, people must have the rental companies confused. I have had zero problems with Park Apartments in the 6 months I've been here. Every problem I've had was fixed within 48 hours.
I have been a resident of The Park Apartments for six years now and have found The Park Apartments management and maintenance to be top notch. When ever I have a maintenance request it is taken care of if not the same day within a day. Management has always been polite, pleasant, professional and helpful. I recently had a job loss and management also worked with me in making rent arrangements to help me get current with my rent payments. I have recommended The Park Apartments to a few of my friends and family. In speaking with some of the folks on the Minneapolis Police force I found Loring Park to the safest neighborhood in the entire metro based on police reports. Whats more, one police officer I spoke with had referred his niece to The Park Apartments. The Loring Park neighborhood is a very diverse and beautiful part of Minneapolis. I have learned since moving here that The Park Apartments was instrumental in turning Loring Park around starting in the early seventies. Also, do not confuse The Park Apartments with other property management companies in the neighborhood with similar names and locations. There appears to be some confusion here in particular.
I have lived here for 10 years now an have nothing but positive vibes here ,from the well kept up buildings to the service I've received, when I did have an issue, it was handled promptly. I love it here and recomend it highly. I live in the cottage community on medicine lake.
