This is our second year living here and we love it just as we loved the first day we moved in. Here everything is well taken care of, beautiful, calm, neighbors are nice, safe place…Amenities are great and we can get busy here. Stores are super close too. I can`t say enough good places about here and we plan to stay here for 3 more years or until we can buy our home.
After years of home ownership, I now wanted to finally build our dream home. But my wife had other ideas: She wanted to move into a very nice luxury apartment and enjoy a more carefree lifestyle without the hassles and responsibilities of ownership, allowing us more freedom for job focus, travel, and family fun.
I finally agreed to try apartment living for a year. After months of looking throughout the Twin Cities, we settled on The View at Long Lake. After just three weeks I said “I’m never leaving this place!”
After over three years we still feel like we’re at a nice resort/spa without having to live out of a suitcase. Whether your interest is in book club, cooking class, kick boxing, yoga or happy hour, this community has something you’ll enjoy. Serene lakefront wooded nature walks or bike trails in one of the Twin City’s leading regional parks begin right next to our swimming pool.
Apartments are large, very well-designed and exceptionally soundproofed.
The professional staff at The View is over the top in so many ways.
We really couldn’t ask for more and plan to continue enjoying this carefree lifestyle for years to come!
When my wife and I had to put our last fur buddy to sleep, the house we had was a pretty quiet spot and seemed too empty for the two of us. We started to look for a place to live convenient to our offices and managed by people we thought we’d like to be around.
Our visit to Genesee closed the deal very quickly. [Leasing Coordinator] Adam escorted us through the property and we were excited about the many extras Genesee provided. The Concierge services, especially the little details (like placing packages in our apartment, easy dry cleaning and free airport rides) and the [community amenities] were more than we expected.
We really felt at home as we started to meet the staff of the property, who have exceeded our expectations at every turn. They are always cheerful, available at all hours and never fail to stop and make sure we are happy.
We love living at Riverview at Upper Landing! We have renewed our lease once and plan to do so again. One of the many reasons we love living here is due to the staff. The office staff is professional, courteous and kind. The maintenance staff is consistently prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. Riverview at Upper Landing is always clean, in the parking garage as well as interior and exterior public spaces. Living here is fantastic, and then there’s the location; Riverview at Upper Landing is walking distance to the Excel, Science Museum, theaters, restaurants and city parks. We would recommend living here to anyone!
Convenient and wonderful location. Professional and friendly management and maintenance staff.
I have almost lived here at Parkside Apts for a year. It is a year that has gone by so quickly, that I hardly believe it’s been that long. From the day I moved in, I knew this place was going to be different than other apts I had lived at. The first thing that I thought was a very nice touch was the pizza in the freezer, 2 liter of pop in fridge and the pizza cutter on the counter with a note from Parkside welcoming me to my new place. What a thoughtful touch. My last apt they gave me a chip holder. What a world of difference! Let me back up a bit. I’m in a wheelchair and so the apt I was viewing was a handicapped accessible one.There were a few things that could have been adjusted to make life a little easier. Even by the time I moved in, they had already taken care of these. It was the same with the move in checklist. There wasn’t anything major on there, so I figured if they got around to it in a week or so, that would be fine. That’s what I had come to expect from the different places I had lived. No, they were there the day after I moved in and took care of everything!
Their attention to making sure that everything is fixed in a timely manner and the cleanliness of their building is unbelievable. As I had mentioned, I’m in a wheelchair. Well, each time we’ve had a snowfall, I can’t believe how quick and the number of times they have been out there shoveling and putting ice melt down. Even at 1 in the morning! It sure makes my life easier. The last place I lived, which I’d like to mention was a senior complex, took them at least a couple of days before they would shovel.
I most definitely also need to mention the office staff, maintenience staff, and everyone employed here at Parkside. They are the most FRIENDLIEST, HELPFUL, and CARING staff that you will ever meet. All of them are always willing to go that extra mile to make sure that whatever you are in need of, that it’s taken care of. Much KUDOS to all of you. The last thing I feel needs to be mentioned is the activities that Parkside has put on. For a complex this size to provide food at their bbqs they have done is unbelievable. They also have promoted some very good charitable events including being a drop site for toys for tots and a drive to collect school supplies for underprivileged kids among numerous other things. I could sit here and continue to list more of what has made this such a great place to live, but it would go on forever. I truly hope the staff win a free lunch, for that is the least of what they deserve for all their effort and hard work that they put into every day. I hope that there are more of you that take the time, even if it’s just a few minute blurb, to tell your great experiences also, cause I know that there are more of you out there that feel the way I do. All I know is that I look forward to many more happy years here at Parkside. Thank you for all that you do in allowing me to call this place home.
The Parkside Apartments are by far the best apartments I have lived in! The management team is great; they knew my name within a week of me living there! They are extremely helpful and help to make the complex feel like a community. The location is also perfect! Right by restaurants, shopping, and plenty of activities. I really enjoy living here and would recommend it to anyone who asks!
