Never have I felt so manipulated, taken advantage of, and deceived by a company. The management made the excuse that the staff was inept and poorly informed, in regards to the issues in which I felt that the figurative wool was pulled over my eyes.… See More>

        I have thoroughly enjoyed living her! The staff is especially nice, fun and helpful I am so happy about the closeness of the skyway, buses and light rail. The apartment are clean and functional. The friendliness and excitement of downtown is is a wonderful surprise!

                Mears Park Place
                I certainly agree that when there are two elevators out in our building it does become an inconvenience for residents. Mears Park Place is currently starting a six month project which involves upgrading all three elevators, required by the city of St. Paul. Over that time period there will only be two working elevators, however by upgrading our elevators it will alleviate issues we have had in the past with elevators being out of order. As far as the stairwells go, the doors are locked and residents can only exit on certain floors. I am working on changing that so residents can use the stairs to access their apartment. I do apologize for the comment made by one of my employees. I take your comments seriously and it will be looked into and addressed. Last week was the coldest it has been in two decades. Mears has made upgrades to the heating system but due to outside temperatures there were issues with the heat. I had extra help working overtime to make sure apartments had adequate heat. I apologize if you feel your concerns have not been responded to or taken seriously. I have an "open door" policy and you are always welcome to address any issue with me in person, I invite you to do so if you feel any of your concerns have still not been addressed. The goal of all staff members at Mears Park Place is to make your stay an enjoyable one. Again Thank You for your comments. Gloria T., Property Manager

                Our experience was good

                We leased a courtyard apartment last July (2011). The apartment was fresh, clean, quiet, and convenient. The management and maintenance staff were friendly and responsive. Anytime we reported a problem it was fixed almost immediately. The courtyard pavement is deteriorating and needs repair - that… See More>

                    I lived at Mears Park Place Apartments for 2 years and fully regret it. First, the apartments are overpriced. The area is really run down, but has a lot of potential. I feel as though until it meets that potential it is insane to ask… See More>

                      The apartments themselves are decent, but rent is relatively high compared to surrounding apartment complexes. Our biggest problem with Mears Park Place is the management and staff. We constantly receive rude warnings and citations for "lease violations" that we never commit, often making unrelated and… See More>

                            In the couple of months I lived at Mear's Park Place, my experience was almost always a negative one rather than positive.
