Friendly office staff that is very responsive and helpful with any questions or concerns you might have. Frequent social events and community updates via social and email. Maintenance is easy to request and property is always kept clean which is greatly appreciated.

    Goood so far. A little bit disappointed as the door hatchet was removed and there is always a concern that the maintenance team and anybody can enter the house. The maintenance team and Princeton is very vigilant with pest control and inspection.

      Living at Colony Park Apts/Homes at 240 Varnum Ave., Lowell, MA 01854 is good living! It's quiet no one bothers each other it perfect for me I'm single and retired. I like my peacefulness. I live across the street from Lowell General Hospital it gets alittle noisy when Fire Apparatus goes by or when Police go by for their emergencies but you get used to it plus I feel safe. If you have children it wouldn't be a good idea to rent there, there is no playgrounds for them. If your single and an older person wanting peace and quiet it's really the best place for you. That's my story.

        I like the apartment. I think for a studio it's a decent price especially in the area but, I have seen several insects in my apartment during my stay. I think this apartments needs some renovations if you compare it to other complex apartments I've seen in the area.

          Good community with a responsive office staff for dealing with logistical problems and a rapid maintenance staff for handling physical issues. Inside space in 1br apartment is nice and cozy, but a little dark with only 2 windows. Rent is average expected for current market.

            The apartment is very nice, but quite dark unless we turn on the lights as the only light source is the single window. I feel safe here and I love the location. The maintenance and office staff are all lovely and incredibly helpful. I enjoyed the empanada event, bit otherwise do not feel that this is a community'; but rather just the place I live.

                    Really great place to live. The neighbors are nice, maintenence has been easy and responsive to any service work orders put in. Varnum Ave is busy so it gets a little loud sometimes but it's bearable.

                      The location of this building is great- right across the street from Lowell General, right along the boulevard for beautiful walks, and just a mile down the road from Lowell's newest Market Basket. The quality of the apartments are livable, but not great- you can tell that everything is done as cheaply as possible, so there's low quality countertops and door knobs, and any work that's been done is sloppy. The building is safe and quiet, and besides the annoyance of marijuana smoke seeping through the walls sporadically, it can be a lovely place to live.

                        The maintenance service has been pretty bad since living here. The issues eventually do get fixed but there is such poor communication between maintenance workers and staff and tenants. It is very frustrating to deal with.

                                  Apartment is relatively inexpensive for two people in this area, and it's a comfortably sized space with a kitchen, living room, balcony, and bedroom. If you need a simple living space, it's awesome. There are lots of weird design choices and mistakes, like the bedroom closet is very cramped, but the linen closet and pantry are way larger than you need. The appliances are very outdated, I had to remove the fridge door and turn it around because it was assembled incorrectly, our pantry shelves were flimsy and couldnt hold much weight, the bathroom has no outlets, the heating bill is high in the winter (like $100), etc. etc. But the balcony is pretty, the complex is quiet (I can hear music sometimes through the walls, but very rarely), and it's a good location. I wish the laundry was less expensive (coin op), but since there are only 20 units, they dont break down or fill up like in a busier complex. Overall, I'm happy enough with this apartment, but I'd like to move on.

                                        Very quiet place. Out-dated but the community we are in around Colony Park makes up for it. One downside is the fact that heating is electric. I believe it would be more beneficial for each unit to have gas radiant heat. It is more energy efficient and would be cheaper for everyone to heat with. Or have the option to put in heat pumps into the rooms to lower electricity costs.

                                          Noise is 3 because I can clearly hear when people are up and about in the apartment above me, kind of a positive for safety sake though. Community is friendly, and respectful to one another. Laundry machines should be automated, the quarter system is so 1990.

                                              I have been very happy with all the staff with Princeton Properties. Everyone that I have met have been very friendly and courteous. My problem with the carpet has bee resolved and I was very happy with the response time and communication with the maintenance person who fixed the problem.

                                                The first few months were amazing. All the residents respected everyone else. As of now, a few younger residents have moved in and havr added noise to the community. I still love the apartment and complex, it's just more roudy.
