At Towne Properties, we love what we do. When we were still a young company back in the 1960’s, we realized that our residents wanted more than just a place to hang their hat. They want to enjoy a sense of community. To belong. To love where they live. So for us, it’s not just about building and managing apartments. With every project we build, and in every community we manage, our goal is to create a sense of community and become part of the bigger community, the neighborhood, the city, and the region. Becoming an integral part of the communities in which we operate is two-fold. The first element is giving back to the community to support others both on a corporate level and a grass roots level with our residents. The second ongoing initiative is giving back to the planet by incorporating green initiatives wherever we can.
Great Places to GiveGiving isn’t just about a company writing a fat check to a charity. Although we’re proud of the support we provide to ArtsWave, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (we were their first corporate team in 1998, and have been an active contributor and fund-raiser since then), and United Way on a corporate level, Towne Properties is most proud of the grass roots fundraising by our associates and our residents. From Beck’s Bakery bake sales to Crawl for a Cure our associates and residents have raised tens of thousands for charities throughout all the metropolitan areas in which we do business. And every year our residents help us give back through our annual Great Places to Give campaign. Here is how we give back at Cincinnati Premier Living:
Green LivingTowne Properties is proud to have constructed Cincinnati’s first LEED certified apartment community at DeSales Flats in East Walnut Hills. But “being green” or “going green” encompasses so much more. Energy and water efficiency improvements can save our residents money while also having a positive impact on the environment. So from making our apartment homes more efficient with LED lighting and low flow shower heads and commodes, to community gardens and recycling, we encourage each community to choose its own path and invite participation among its residents. Here are some of the steps taken at Cincinnati Premier Living:
- Encourage residents to participate in recycling programs offered by Hamilton County.
- Encourage new residents to contact Duke Energy and get set up with their “free light bulb” program which helps transition their homes from incandescent to energy-efficient LED bulbs.
- Encourage residents to report any leaks/drips in sinks/faucets to avoid water waste.
- Gauge resident interest in a community garden at one of our locations.
- Encourage prospects and current residents to shop locally and to try one of OUR local personal favorites such as Nine Giant Brewery, The Coffee Exchange and Pleasant Ridge Chili.
We have certainly loved living at the Fairways. The area is safe and quiet and well kept. Our apartment is beautiful and just about a steal for the quality and price. But overall the best part of living here has been the management. They are always nice and friendly and actually care about the residents. They have made living here a great experience!- Kelsey & Scott, The Fairways of Rolling Ridge
I just wanted to say what a great job the landscapers always do. The grass, new plantings and mulch all look great. Thank you for keeping The Majestic looking so nice!- Walt, The Majestic
We have lived in our 2 bedroom apartment for the past 2 years and have greatly enjoyed its secure and quiet surroundings. We looked at a lot of apartments before finding this one and knew it was right the moment we walked in. The hardwood floors, new appliances, and private balcony made it a fantastic value for our budget. All of the apartments and grounds are well maintained, the fellow tenants are very considerate, and the staff is professional and accommodating.- Jen & Mark, Fairways of Rolling Ridge
I have lived at Buxton Place for 3 years and am very impressed with their tenant service and care for the building in which I live.- Ann, Buxton Place Apartments
I currently live at Oakview Apartments and I moved from The Citadel because I needed a smaller space. Both apartments were great and they made my move as easy as can be. I liked The Citadel so much I even referred my friends to live there. You can tell that they put a lot of work into remodeling their apartments.- Ashley, Oakview Apartments
We have lived here for two years now and we love our apartment. We have not been able to find a place that has more charm or space for the price! And we have enjoyed living in a beautiful space that welcomes our pets.- Dyani & Skyler
