Updates and Observations from the Pacific Gardens Office

Goodness, it really has been a busy Spring and Summer for the Pacific Gardens Staff! Lots of residents coming and going, plenty of work going on around the community, and many more changes on the horizon. Eventually, we knew that we would want to come back and detail a few quick thoughts that we had in order to make sure we were all on the same page. We hope this will be seen as useful for our residents, or simply for guests inquiring about coming here. Here are a few thoughts:

  1. With the warmer weather, it is common to see more people entering and leaving the buildings. A little time outside or away is good, and while the inside is a great shield from the heat, we should also be careful about who we let in, and who we give codes or keys to. Please make sure that if anyone approaches you to let them inside that you inform them that it is against your lease. Our vendors will always be given access by us prior to coming into the building, but guests should always attempt to make contact with the resident that they are visiting to be let in. Also, please do not distribute keys or codes to anyone that is not a resident. This leaves not just yourself, but others in your building, open to security issues down the road. All guests should be let in at the door or use the panel systems to call out to the apartment for entry.
  2. Animals galore! While it is amazing to see pet owners out and about with their beloved, hairy companions, it is absolutely necessary that everyone clean up after their pet immediately. Pet waste is not just gross because of poor grounds keeper sometimes has to pick it up, but also because our residents have to see it in their front lawns. Let’s face it: our community is much to beautiful to have waste just laying around.
  3. During the summer months, our community sees its fair share of people moving in and out. While it is sad to see residents go, it is important that residents properly dispose of trash and other items accordingly, and that they make sure to provide us a correct forwarding address for deposit. IT IS IMPERATIVE that no large pieces of furniture be disposed by our dumpsters, and that all bagged trash goes into the dumpster, and is not laid beside it. In addition, we want to make sure that everyone receives their deposit, and in a timely fashion, so make sure to provide an address for its delivery!
  4. One more thought comes to mind: we know that a lot of people will find times away from their home, or will be spending a lot of time inside avoiding the summer heat. As such, we ask that everyone be diligent in submitting maintenance reports for items that are damaged or need replaced (especially for emergency items like leaks, power outages, total drain blockages, etc.). We will respond as quickly as possible to these requests. Lastly, our office and staff are taking the safety of our residents as a matter of utmost priority. Try to refrain from submission of very small work orders, and make sure that all residents are feeling well, and are able to either be out of the apartment or in a separate room while the work is being completed (REMINDER: your Rent Café portal is a great place to submit electronic maintenance requests).

With this all in mind, it is our hope that we all have a great summer. Thanks to everyone for making Pacific Gardens a great place to live, and we look forward to finding more ways to engage with all of you in the future.

Perks of Being a Pacific Gardens Resident

Our staff loves working at Pacific Gardens! The grounds are gorgeous, interesting/unique features abound, and our residents are some of the best out there. We enjoy being here so much that we would like to take a moment to let it be known why someone new should want to join our community. These are just a few of our thoughts, but Pacific Gardens has a lot to offer, and we hope these ideas can give people a better understanding of what Pacific Gardens is like!

 

  • Pacific Gardens maintains a wonderful and friendly staff. From the office to maintenance technicians to our groundskeeper, all staff is put here to make a resident’s life as comfortable as possible. We all care and will work tirelessly for you.
  • Maintenance is on-site and responds promptly to all requests. We are more than willing to keep checking in to make sure that everything is done correctly. Plus they will leave cards that can be used to provide feedback, increasing their ability to follow up on all needed maintenance. Finally, all work requests can be submitted online for your convenience!
  • Our grounds are some of the prettiest out there, with lots of open spaces. It is easy to find residents and guests alike walking through our community or to find children playing. We have lawns mowed and maintained once a week, with our groundskeeper going through each day to pick up trash, pull weeds, lay mulch, plant new bushes/flowers/etc. or set up new garden areas.
  • The buildings actually feel like home! With only 8 apartments in each building, boasting large laundry areas and spacious storage rooms available to all residents, this really is a community where you don’t feel like you are living a box right next to a lot of other people.
  • Apartments come included with all sorts of neat and unique features. Whether it is the myriad of large windows that let in plenty of natural light, apartments with balconies, dens, walk-in closets, breakfast bars, and even some with washer/dryer in-unit, there are all kinds of apartments to fit what it is that you are looking for.
  • It’s all about the extras! We offer a Clubhouse for resident use, a fitness center that can be accessed 24/7, garages for extra parking opportunities and a security detail that patrols every night so that you and your loved ones can feel safe.
  • Lastly, our office staff is kind, receptive and will work for you. Whether it is working with residents, interacting with guests, scheduling work to be done in or around your apartment, planning fun events (like how our Christmas party last year), coordinating major work (such as our roofing and siding replacements), or being engaged online and on social media, it is our job and our pride to be active, engaged and courteous with anyone coming to visit.

Has this all been enough to peak your interest? If so, please go HERE for more information about our availability. If you are looking to apply to live with us, please go HERE. For anyone looking to live with us, we do have several items we will check/verify, so make sure to review the Rental Application Requirements page included here. (IMPORTANT: All applicants must be 19 years of age and have a valid SSN in order to apply)

We would love to have you as a new member of our community. We never stop looking for ways that we can improve the living situations of our residents. So, if you want an office that cares about your needs, and that loves what they do and works with purpose, Pacific Gardens may just be the perfect place to call your new home!

Check it Out! Garages and a Secret Opportunity Available Now!

Extra, Extra! Read all about it!

Pacific Gardens has some garages available for any resident looking for a nice home for their car. This could be your solution to avoid scraping ice and snow off your car during the last portion of winter, or avoid getting rain on your newly washed car during the beginning of Spring!

Our garages are $35/month, and are available for rent on a month-to-month basis. We think that is pretty amazing, and allows you the most amount of flexibility with how long you keep it! Inquire with our office today if this feels like the perfect home for your car!

Also, we would like to tell you about a secret opportunity (maybe not so secret now) available for all prospective residents looking to start living with us. We have a…

Two bedroom with a Den…

WITH WASHER, DRYER AND BALCONY ATTACHED.

Wow, how did this happen? Easily one of our rarest apartments here, and coming off a new remodel! Find yourself in a new home with soft-shut cabinets, wonderful new counters with a bar area, a den that includes your washer, dryer and balcony, and a large living room/bedrooms with new flooring. Amazing option? Check. Not exorbitantly expensive? How does $1070.00/month sound for all of this? Plenty of space? Roger that.

For anyone interested, again, feel free to contact us! We love new friends just as much as you will love our community. Inquire quickly, as this will not be available for long (who knows, we may take it for ourselves!).

Updates at Pacific Gardens Apartments: Looking Forward

On our last post, we talked about some construction projects that were being done along a vast stretch of 78th street right behind our community. A public meeting has been held, and there have been some updates, as well as changes made to the timeline of the projects from our original post. Please find the link to the website documenting these changes here. We will try to be up-to-date with all of this work, and continue to let our residents know so that their are no surprises. That said, construction like this is bound to throw us all for a loop, and we ask that everyone, including our neighbors be patient with the city while it is completed.

Similarly noted will be work that we are going to be completing over the coming weeks! Going back to last summer, a hail storm happened that caused a lot of damage to siding, windows and roofs of our lovely buildings. We were crushed. Hearts broken. However, our office could not let this stand, and over the last few months, we have gotten windows and screens replaced on many of our buildings. We also started re-shingling our damaged roofs, with the rest of this work being completed in Spring. Finally, the time is here! We are now starting to replace siding on buildings that were damaged by hail.

This work is set to begin on Tuesday, February 4th, with crews coming in to work on building 21. After this, they will head over to building 1, and tackle one/two buildings a week. Soon, we will have any buildings with damaged siding fixed. Our excitement is immeasurable, and we hope that this is something that our residents will be happy with, too.

There is other work that is set to take place, too! Much of it is tentative, so for now, we cannot say much. Still, we are looking forward to the time in which we can roll out these improvements. Pacific Gardens is something that we are really proud of; we are blessed everyday with large and open grounds, and comfortable, private apartments for our wonderful residents to enjoy. We know our residents and guests deserve this, so we are more than willing to continue this work to shape the community into something everyone loves. Thanks go out to every person who make Pacific Gardens what it is, and we look forward to positive changes, both large and small.

Rare Opportunities Coming Soon

At Pacific Gardens, we like to think that we’re just a little different from your standard apartment community. Wide open courtyards, vibrant and abundant with trees, flowers and shrubbery. Heck, our apartments are like a mystery box; you never know what surprises are going to be in one of them until you go inside. Who doesn’t like a little quirkiness?

Alas, we are mostly in possession of two and three bedroom apartments over here. This is great for roommates, families and the like, but what about those residents who just need a space for themselves or maybe one other person? Is there a space for someone who doesn’t need that much space?

It is possible that we won’t have one available for quite some time…

Or, it is possible that we will have two coming available in November!

That is just so wonderful. We don’t get the chance to help others find a one bedroom apartment very often, but here we are! Read below to get more information on our couplet of offerings:

  • 2503: Available first week of November, $835/month. Remodeled one bedroom, one bathroom + den w/ balcony. Second Floor, 802 sq. ft.
  • 2602: Available 11/22. $735/month. Updated one bedroom, one bathroom. Second floor. 670 sq. ft.

We are very excited to throw some one bedroom apartments into the mix here. If anyone was wondering, we still have a couple two or three bedroom options that are upcoming or are available now, but they are going fast. Whether you want to hop on something a little rarer here, or you are simply looking for a cozy home to settle into for Fall/Winter, we have you covered. Give us a shout! Our staff would love to meet you, and find you the right place with YOU in mind.

Right now, surprises and mysteries abound at Pacific Gardens!
