Thousands of flowers are planted at the Park Place One Apartments each year creating a rainbow of colors. Flowers including tulips, daffodils, irises and hyacinths welcome residents each Spring.

What Other Features Should I Know About when comparing the Park Place One Apartments to other communities?
Community Wide Surveillance System
The Park Place One Apartments recently completed a state-of-the-art surveillance system. We don’t know of any other apartment buildings’ surveillance system that remotely compares in scope, size and sophistication to the system that is currently installed and operating at Park Place One Apartments. There are 51 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 an estimated 5 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 Park Place One Apartments on their smartphones. Each tenant has to 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 Park Place One 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.
LED Outdoor Lighting
All of the exterior lighting is new at the Park Place One Apartments. In the evening, the community is brightly lit. The architectural details of the street 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 Park Place One Apartments doesn’t just talk about. Safety features should be added to every family’s check list of features that are important to them when looking for a place to live.
