An Apartment That is Close to Work

I am an executive account manager at one of the nation’s coolest amusement parks. There is not one thing that I don’t enjoy about my job, other than the commute time. I live about 30 minutes away, which I did not think would bother me at first. Dealing with traffic five or six days a week often means that my commute time is well over an hour though, and I have grown quite weary of it. When one of my coworkers told me to look at, I could have kissed him!

He knew how much I hated my commute, and this was definitely an answer to my prayers. It is a really nice complex that is just minutes away from where I work. Not only that, but it is really nice too! It has everything that a person could ever want or expect from an apartment complex, and then some! I was able to find out so much information from the website too. The complex is not going to be open until summer of 2016, but that just gives me enough time to apply and make arrangements with the apartment manager where I am right now.

I looked at the pictures online, and the community is just gorgeous. It has everything I need, from the layout of the apartments to all of the amenities for the entire community. I filled out an application right there on the spot, and it did not take long for them to get back to me. I have excellent credit and references, so I didn’t think it would be a problem to get accepted. Now, I just have to play the waiting game, but even that is not so bad because I am so excited about finally moving closer to work in the very near future.

Pet Friendly Place with a Bark Park and Pet Washing Station

How could we pass up moving to a place that has a Bark Park with a pet washing station? This is like a dream come true for my wife and I who like apartment living but have two dogs. I like it that new builders are seeing the value of leasing to pet owners. It used to be you had to move way down the scale of apartment quality to lease a place if you had pets. We found the perfect place at We will be moving in as soon as it is built.

The plans include and Internet cafe and coffee bar. They will also have a big gym with cardio machines, weights and a big space for those who want to do yoga. They will even offer valet trash service! I have never even heard of that. I have been taking the trash out since before I was a teenager. I am not going to know how to handle someone doing it for me. I’m going to feel a little ritzy with that one.

Hey, we work hard and want a nice place to live. We are not interested in having a house. We like apartment living, but we do want a nice place that is suited to us and our dogs. There is a big park and community garden planned for the complex. I had been growing things in planters on our balcony. Now I can actually do some gardening without having the upkeep of a property and house. I wish we could get started right now. The only drawback I can see with the place is that it is not finished yet. We have to wait until summer 2016 to move in. We are both counting the days. We know our doggies are going to be thrilled.
