Is the Ambassador II Apartments Quiet?
The short answer is YES! The Ambassador II Apartments is a luxury apartment complex that was built with sound control and fire safety as a primary design component. Unlike most other buildings outside of the City’s downtown, the Ambassador II Apartments have concrete floors/ceilings separating apartments vertically, as well as, concrete party walls between adjacent apartments. While residents in other buildings are constantly complaining about hearing “walking sounds” from their neighbors, our residents live in an environment that protects them against such nuisance noises. Anyone who has lived in a building that lacks sound control, can testify to the importance of concrete floors and walls. Concrete floors, ceilings, and walls are another feature that sets the Ambassador II Apartments from many others, and makes the Ambassador II Apartments so special.
What Other Features Should I Know About when comparing the Ambassador II Apartments to other communities?
Community Wide Surveillance System
The Ambassador II Apartments recently completed and implemented a state-of-the-art surveillance system. We don’t know of any other apartment building’s surveillance system that remotely compares in scope, size and sophistication to the system that is currently installed and operating at the Ambassador II Apartments. There are 41 simultaneous camera images focused on the front and rear of each building, and much of the parking lots. The images are all delivered in HD (high definition) color. The system has miles and miles of underground cable, and each camera is independently connected to a computer system. The hard-wired system is incased in conduit, and not dependent on Wi-Fi signals. The most special feature is the ability to share images. The digital images and videos are available to EACH resident, residents can literally sit on the beach and view images of the Ambassador II Apartments on their smartphones. Each resident has the ability to zoom into a location and magnify the image live, just as they might do with stored photos on their iPhones or Android based phones. The system is simply amazing. The reason other apartment communities don’t offer such a system is simple –it’s very, very expensive to build and operate. Safety is something that the management team of the Ambassador II Apartments doesn’t just talk about. Safety features should be added to every families checklist of features that are important to them when looking for a place to live.
LED Outdoor Lighting
All of the exterior lighting is new at the Ambassador II Apartments. In the evening, the community is brightly lit. The architectural details of the exterior lighting posts match the new wall lights, and are very similar to what one would see on the streets of Paris. The site lighting adds a ‘resort-like’ feel to the community. The high-tech lighting is a first in NE Philadelphia, or for that matter, a first for any Philadelphia (garden) apartment community. The new lighting extends from the front to the rear of each building for an added safety feature. The new lights double the light output (lumens) of our previous lights (and that found in other apartment communities), projecting and emitting light in an off-white soothing “daylight” color. The selection of both color and wattage for all of the new lighting was engineered to maximize light and comfort. Safety is something that the management team of the Ambassador II Apartments doesn’t just talk about. Safety features should be added to every families check list of features that are important to them when looking for a place to live.
