There are 6 buildings. Each building is numbered in the order that it was built. Buildings #4/#5/#6 have slightly larger square footage because the atriums are smaller and they have different “classic edition” floorplans. Each building has two Atriums that are open area courtyards that let in light and have tropical landscaping features such as palm trees and fountains.
The 4th floor or each building is the penthouse level. The floorplans are the same except penthouses have extra high ceilings. All condos in Park Place have 9 foot high ceilings, however the penthouse level ceilings are 22 feet!
North facing Condos in Building #4 get street noise from Olympic. Otherwise condos are very quiet.
Kitchens are galley style or square with large pantry cabinet. The original kitchens came with whirlpool appliances and ceramic tile counter tops. Many owners have completely remodeled the kitchens. Condos have no gas, so the stove is electric.
All floorplans have an open living room/dining room area. There are two wood burning fireplaces in each condo, one in the living room and the other in the master bedroom. Masterbedroom suites have their own private bathroom with large roman soaking tub and double vanity. Master bedrooms also have large walk in closets. The builder used a lot of marble, brass, and mirror accents that were popular in the 1980’s.
The HOA is very strict about installing wood floors. They are not allowed on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor. Only condos on the 1st floor are allowed to install them. Many home owners install very expensive berber carpets in the living room/dining room and bedrooms. This is another reason this building is really quite!
Every condo has a balcony, but they can vary greatly in size.
