Excellent Options for One or Two Bedrooms This July at Shadow Lake Square!

Summer is always the busiest time for moving, and July is looking like our biggest variety of available floor plans for the year! If you’ve been looking for just the right view, floor, or size of apartment, contact us soon to see if our availability has your perfect apartment!


One Bedrooms

At Shadow Lake Square, we have three styles of one bedroom apartment: Meadowlark (606 square feet), Goldenrod (732 square feet), and Lacewing (780-822 square feet). We will have both Goldenrods and Lacewings available in mid-July!

Two Bedrooms

Our options for two bedroom apartments are still pretty sparse for summer moves, so you definitely want to move quickly! We have our largest floorplan ready now, the Jefferson (1260 square feet), which is definitely a rare find. This one in particular is an excellent first floor that walks out toward the end of our property and overlooks a natural green space. We will have a couple Sherman (1127 square feet) options ready in mid-July as well.


Our office is not currently open to visitors, but we have plenty of ways to connect with you digitally, over the phone, and through scheduled self-guided tours. Contact us today to learn more and to get started with an online application!



Food Truck Fun at These Papillion Area Apartments!

Shadow Lake Square Apartments, and many of our Robert Hancock & Co. sister properties, have been enjoying having food trucks visiting our properties! This has been an excellent way to bring local food directly to our community and residents have enjoyed trying new food from the comfort of their own homes. We have all likely been spending a lot more time cooking at home, and it is always nice to have to switch it up and have someone else take care of lunch or dinner!

Tonight, May 28th, we are having Wonton Jon’s onsite for dinner starting at 5:00pm. They have joined us before, but with their ever-changing menu, we are excited to see the new items available today! They also offer online ordering that helps minimize crowds and promotes healthy social distance. Check out their website below:

We would love to hear feedback from residents on what type of food trucks they would be interested and what times they would like to see them. We have had both lunch and dinner times scheduled, and would love to know what times are most appealing to our residents!

Looking to join our community? We are currently leasing one bedroom apartment from now until mid-June, with two bedroom availability beginning in mid-July. We have plenty of tools to lease contact-free, so send us an email today for leasing info and to start an online application!

Keeping Our Community Healthy at These Papillion Apartments!

As we are all well aware, there is an ongoing global health crisis that is impacting everyone’s day-to-day lives. At Shadow Lake Square, we are making adjustments to our everyday operations to preserve the health of our community. We want to keep our staff healthy and able to continue serving our residents both past and future.

Some changes we have made:

-We are operating with our office locked and limiting personal contact as much as possible.

-We are working to create video tours and other content to make leasing from a distance easy! We also offer online applications!

-We strongly encourage online payments through the RentCafe platform. If residents would still like to pay with personal check, money order, or cashiers check, their payment must be submitted via the rent drop box outside the clubhouse.

-To protect our community and conserve vital sanitation supplies, we have closed our fitness center, coffee machine, and public restrooms.

We thank everyone for their cooperation during this unprecedented time. We hope to be able to see everyone again soon!

You’ll Love Our Specials at These Papillion Apartments!

Valentine’s Day holds a very special place in many of our hearts. A cornerstone to any relationship is a cozy home base where you can let all your troubles melt away. If you don’t have one of those spots or are currently dissatisfied with your current one, give your partner (and yourself) the gift of a new apartment home!

This month at Shadow Lake Square, we have just the cure for your love nest needs. We have some really great choices, including one and two bedroom apartment homes that will blow your socks off! Not only that, we have some specials for you and yours that are almost too good to be true.

If you tour our community and love it so much that you put in an application within the first 48hours, we’ll give you a $100 Hy-Vee gift card when you move in! And where is the closest Hy-Vee, you ask? It’s right across the street—literally within walking distance to our community. Sweet!

If you decide to crown Shadow Lake Square as your new love nest and move in within seven days of your first tour, you’ll get a $150 Amazon gift card! It’s great for sprucing up your new roost or as a ‘thank you’ to your better half.

Finally, we wanted to do something really special for our lovebirds who are looking for a two bedroom apartment home this month. If you move in to a two bedroom apartment during the month of February, you will get April’s rent free! You just have to commit to a 13 month lease—easy!

No I hear you asking: what if I tour a two bedroom apartment home, put in an application within 48 hours AND move in to our new home within seven days? Do I get everything?

And the answer is YES! At Shadow Lake Square Apartments, you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Stay Safe in Winter Weather!

Winter has really kicked off this week, bringing cold temperatures, snow, and ice. The Shadow Lake Square maintenance team has been putting in extra hours trying to make sure the property is clear of snow and ice, but they can’t eliminate all hazards at all times. We want all of our residents and their guests to stay safe this winter!

Here are some reminders for making it through this this snowy winter safely:

Be vigilant!

-Most accidents and injuries occur when people are simply not paying attention. Make sure you are aware of potentially dangerous weather and are dressing appropriately for the conditions. When you are out and about on the property, proceed carefully and slowly. We have buckets of ice melt at each entrance, so residents can use those at their discretion.

Secure a Garage!

-We currently have a few detached garages available for $95/month. Having a garage will prevent you from having to scrape ice and snow from your windshield on frigid days. Our attached garages are a highly coveted commodity ($110/month), so contact the office ASAP if you would like to be added to a waitlist for your building.

Be Kind to Maintenance!

-Please make sure your car is not parked with the front end over the curb, so maintenance can easily clear the sidewalks. If you notice that spots have been cleared of snow in the lot and your car has not moved, please moved your car to a cleared spot, so more spots can be cleared. If you are parked by a sidewalk, please do not brush snow off your car onto the cleared sidewalk.

We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable winter season! Spring will be here before we know it!



Ring in The New Year Right at These Papillion Apartments!

Welcome to the New Year, everyone! I hope it’s the best one yet. With a new year can certainly come a new you. Making resolutions and keeping them is always tough but always worth it! One of my new year’s resolutions (besides not eating like it’s Christmas or Thanksgiving anymore) is to live life to the fullest! I know there are many ways to accomplish that but the one I’ll focus on with this blog post is becoming more active in our community. So what’s there to do around here?

Glad you asked!

One event that caught my eye is the Midwest Pizza Fest in the Omaha Design Center on January 18th. I know, I know… It’s a bit of a conflict with my initial resolution but sacrifices must be made. If getting to know other folks in our community involves pizza and beer, so be it–I don’t make the rules, folks.

Another great event to consider is ABC Story Time! at the Sump Memorial Library. This event is aimed at children so if you’ve got kids, bring them out! Sump Memorial Library is a valuable resource and a striking building—the architecture really is fantastic! Plus it’s a great way to meet other parents and new people. Plus you can check out that new book, DVD, or game you’ve had your eye on. Libraries are fantastic free resources!

Those are just a couple I’m interested this month in order to get 2020 off to a great start. What about you? Do you have an even you like to regular attend? Let us know so we can spread the word!

And if you or anyone you know have a resolution to find a great place to live, look no further! Here at Shadow Lake Square our two bedroom apartment homes are particularly special during the month of January—I’m talking one month’s rent for free! Check out our flyer for details and start the New Year off right!
