16 May 2014: Noise at night from 10:00 pm to until I left work at about 8:00 am. Emergency number called on 16 May 2014 at about 3:00 Am and it was pickup and hanged up. Issues never get solved at… Full Review ▶

Experienced a rent increase of $40. Here is the trick, as a new tenant, the management will make you happy by giving you discounts of your first month and even give you a free parking for 2 months. But after, they… Full Review ▶

I'm afraid this is one of those cases where the landlord seems considerate and friendly at first, but when you move out they take devious measures to claim your deposit. But I'll get to that. The apartment itself is decent, has… Full Review ▶

Lots of noise. Even when the stuff has been informed of the apartments where the noise comes from, nothing has been done. I was also told there is a "no pet" policy, but I have seen pets including dogs in the… Full Review ▶

This building is fantastic. I love the people! If you read the negative reviews it sounds like just one disgruntled tenant who holds a grudge. My husband and I love living here. The building is vintage, the apartments are nice with… Full Review ▶

Although I moved from this location in April, I was very satisfied with the experience of living here. The management and maintenance staff are great--work orders are dealt with immediately. The common areas (laundry room, elevators, hallways, foyer, etc) are clean… Full Review ▶

I've already submitted a review earlier but just had to comment again. YOU WILL REGRET MOVING HERE if you do. If you read the "positive" reviews carefully, you'll be able to easily tell that they are CLEARLY written by management. It… Full Review ▶

The area is really neat, located amidst historical buildings, over looking a waterway in the front and the back of the building over looks a park. It's affordable and the staff are very quick on responding to maintenance questions. I would… Full Review ▶

A wonderful location in the Stadium District, close to Stadium High School and Wright Park. Friendly and helpful office staff, dependable maintenance, and the building was always kept very clean. I lived there 2 years, and it was a very comfortable… Full Review ▶

This a happy place to live. You notice that in the halls and elevators. The location is very good also. You just can not beat a lovely park right next door! There are many other good things about this place, come… Full Review ▶

Really, really bad management. They do not care about you when you are there. If you have a problem you may as well fix it yourself or try to catch a maitenence guy in the hall (they are helpful). They are… Full Review ▶

I have been living in the Park Towers Apartments for a while now and I would like to say that it is a wonderful place to live. The apartment management and grounds crews are amazing for example during the winter storm… Full Review ▶

my overall opinion of my time here was... alright, i suppose. the area's convenient, the prices are fair, & the building's secure. it's really good if you're moving out for the first time (why i'm recommending yes & not no). however,… Full Review ▶

I've been at Park Tower for a year and a few months. At first they made every effort to get me in and they made it seem like it was this AMAZING complex - which it was, in the beginning. But… Full Review ▶

I lived at the Park Tower for 7 years. I would have recommended it to anyone *while I was living there.* When you move out, it's a totally different story. The place is decent for the price, but there are some… Full Review ▶

I have been living at the Park Tower for a couple years now. It has been a nightmare since I moved in. Peggy was sweet as pie when I was looking into the building. She was so fake you could see… Full Review ▶

I've lived at Park Tower Since 2000. When they changed the office staff a few years ago I got my first dose of "Peggy the Office Manager." She is rude, nosey and often tries to step over her authority bounderies. She… Full Review ▶

The recent favorable review must have been written by one of the office staff because what that person said is just not true. True, if you pay your rent on time and never request a repair or are seen by the… Full Review ▶

This place isn't that great, the rent is too high for the building. It might look clean but it's not. I've seen a few rats and cockroaches. The walls are thin and I think there was a elephant living above my… Full Review ▶

Normally I do not voice my opinion on these kinds of websites; however, after reading a few of these I felt compelled to. First of all, the last person who did a review who lived at the Park Tower from 1999-2001… Full Review ▶

I was here just after graduating from UPS. 11th floor, great view of the water. Tiny apartment. Only half sized fridge with no working freezer space. Building was clean, albeit tackly decorated in pink and sea green which got nauseating after… Full Review ▶

They keep the place clean, and were always prompt with maintenance. However, after a one year lease, they tried to raise my rent $60 a month, and were VERY rude when I decided to move out. But the kicker was, on… Full Review ▶

Reading the reviews of this apartment I cannot help but see some exaggerations. I rent a corner apartment on the 8th floor and I rent a covered parking spot. My parking is $55 a month and is the mid level parking… Full Review ▶

This building looks very impressive upon first glance. Art Deco redesigning and landscaping improved a once blighted ugly structure.

However dealing with the mangment it is clear that money is the number one issue. They want as much out of you as… Full Review ▶

I lived at the Park Tower for two years. The view was wonderful and the apartment was spacious. When I moved in (In February of 05) rent was reasonable. By the time I moved out it had gone up $100 due… Full Review ▶

With only 2 elevators and a locking front door the Part Tower apartments are difficult to move in and out of. Additionally street parking is challenging and off street parking is over priced if you rent a stall from the apartment.… Full Review ▶
