Aimco will have spent $200 million on the reconstruction of Park Towne Place by the time everything is complete. Work is now under way on the East Tower, which will have a restaurant on its street floor facing the Parkway when it reopens. After that, the North and West towers will be renovated.
Park Towne Place, the 959-unit apartment complex on the Ben Franklin Parkway, sits right across the street from the Rodin Museum and just down the block from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. A few years ago, it got the Barnes Foundation for a new neighbor. So when its owner, Aimco, decided it was time to push the reset button on the Midcentury Modern development, it decided to play up its location in the heart of the city’s museum district.
One Canal aspires to be the jewel of the Greenway, bringing condo-level finishes and panoramic city views to Boston’s Bulfinch Triangle area. Designed by ICON architecture with interiors by South End designer Dennis Duffy, the 310-unit 12-story complex with striking projecting bay windows features more than $300,000 worth of art, 7,000-square-foot landscaped interior courtyard, 24/7 concierge and penthouses.
Things are looking up in the Art Museum district as Park Towne Place is bringing new excitement to the area. First opened in 1959, the four-tower community is home to nearly 1,000 apartments—from studios to three-bedrooms— that have been fully renovated with contemporary touches and a revitalized underground retail area that includes doggie daycare and an art studio; a permanent collection, rotating exhibits, and artist talks speak to Park Towne’s mission to celebrate the visual arts.
For the fourth consecutive year, Aimco has been named a Top Workplace in Colorado by the Denver Post. Team members were surveyed on areas such as work/life balance, management, direction, execution, and engagement - and the results were compared to thousands of Colorado businesses.
