A WISE INVESTMENT…
Residence at Park Place Condominium
5 Park Place
Annapolis, MD 21401
IMPORTANT FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS
100% Funded in Replacement Reserves based on professional reserve study performed every 3 to 4 years (recent study performed 2015).
No increase in condominium fees for years 2015 and 2016.
Gas (heating & cooking) & water utilities are included in condominium fee. HVAC system is water sourced heat pump with individual air handlers in units. Reduced electricity consumption compared to standard heat pump systems as heating and cooling is generated by central cooling towers and boilers.
•FOCUS ON REDUCTION IN CONSUMPTION:
From the beginning, our Boards have remained focused on finding ways to reduce energy consumption and costs. In the past several years, our electricity consumption has been reduced by over $200,000 per year through projects including garage lighting retrofit, variable speed exhaust systems and controlled motor speeds to name a few.
ABOUT THE BUILDING: Completed in 2007; 208 Units, 7 Story Mid-Rise
•MAJOR STEP TOWARDS SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT:
Effective October 29, 2015, by a vote of a super majority of the Council of Unit Owners, Residence Park Place successfully passed a Bylaw Amendment to ban smoking in all units, common areas and limited common areas for all new owners and renters (except exterior common area(s) specifically designated by Board for smoking, if any). Note: Amendment does include a “grandfather” clause for original owners/renters.

WHAT OUR OWNERS & RESIDENTS ARE SAYING
