I lived at the park apartments for four years and always had great experiences. The rent prices are reasonable for the location and size of the units, they allow cats with no cat rent!, maintenance team is friendly and efficient, communication with landlord is never an issue, and all my complaints are heard and respected. The neighbors are quiet (I think the brick walls help with that). Plus the units have a fabulous charm factor and are so cute. They could use some security cameras for extra safety especially living downtown but that’s the only issue I’ve really had.
Trash management company. Have to fight tooth and nail to get someone out for maintenance repairs, no one ever answers the office phone. The owner is also a slumlord that will steal your deposit no matter how clean you leave the apartment. Don't do business with these scammers. Avoid at all cost honestly.
Please never rent with Park Apartments (especially in the Loring Park area)! Although they have some nice units at decent prices, there are so many negatives to signing a lease with them. First, read their lease very thoroughly and know that they will enter your apartment for inspections a few times a year. The building we lived in had the worst heat amenities ever, we went without heat in the middle of winter for over 24 hours without them saying anything about fixing it. This happened a lot throughout the winter and they never had expressed any concern. The people working in the leasing office are beyond rude and treat you like you’re a nuisance. When moving out, they have the most outrageous standards for cleaning your apartment, the itemized list of deductions is downright laughable. They will charge you for the MOST minor things just to avoid giving you your full deposit, which is just pathetic considering normal ware n’ tare of renting a space for a year or more. They are clearly beyond desperate for money by doing thing so consistently to their tenants. Overall, it is rare to hear of someone who has a good experience renting from the Park Apartments. Please consider the many red flags and negative testimonies before considering them, we wish we had.
We lived in one of the row houses along 15th street, and we honestly had a pretty great experience with the apartment and the management. The row houses are absolutely gorgeous (we lived on the third floor and had exposed brick walls and skylights), and the building itself is insanely quiet because of how solidly built it was way back when - we never heard our neighbors. We had a few minor issues where things needed to be fixed (our ceiling fan quit working in the living room, and they replaced it with a brand new, beautiful fan), and they were always very prompt and courteous. The apartments have radiator heat, and it definitely gets nice and toasty in the winter! But if it's ever too hot, you can just turn whichever radiator off (our bathroom even had a radiator, and it was awesome to have such a warm bathroom in the winters!). The management also does a great job on building upkeep - the grounds always looked so nice, and they even hung beautiful wreaths on the front doors over the holidays. Parking was never great, but that's to be expected in Loring Park; I think a good rule of thumb is to expect parking within a block of your place if you're home before 5pm on the weekdays, and any later than that you might have to park a bit further. There is a fire station that's a few blocks down, and they typically take 15th street as a main route; that was one thing that we couldn't ever quite get used to, but is also in no way a reflection of the apartments themselves. Overall, we loved the apartment itself and the management was pretty decent, so I would definitely recommend looking into their row houses if you're looking for a beautiful, vintage apartment at a good price point!
I SCRUPULOUSLY cleaned my apartment before finishing my lease. They still charged (read: stole) me a $300 cleaning fee. Good location, actually pretty timely about fixing stuff, still thieves.
