New Denver Mixed-Use Community Earns Pair of Awards for Excellence
In Denver’s highly competitive rental real estate market, resident satisfaction is essential for the current wave of new developments. Parq on Speer, a 16-story apartment and retail community near downtown Denver, has achieved early success, garnering two awards for resident satisfaction and customer service.
J Turner Research named Parq on Speer to the 2019 Elite 1% ORA Properties list. The designation is based on a community’s Online Reputation Assessment (ORA) score – which compiles reviews from different sites and then rates all U.S. rental properties on a scale from 1-100.
Parq on Speer is owned and operated by Greystar, a global leader in the investment, development and management of rental housing properties. Featuring 302 total apartment homes alongside 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, residences include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans – townhomes and penthouses – with square footage spanning 545 to 3,517 square feet. Rents start at $1,710. The project architect is Ziegler Cooper Architects.
“Parq on Speer scored 95, cementing its elite status by J Turner Research, the leader in online reputation research in the multifamily industry,” said Mai Olaussen, director of development for Greystar. “Only properties with a score of 90 or higher are ranked in the top 1%.”
Gaining further recognition, Parq on Speer was also lauded as a 2020 Kingsley Excellence Winner based on its outstanding customer service. Communities designated with the Kingsley Excellence Award exceed industry benchmarks – going above and beyond to ensure their residents are satisfied with their living experience. The awards are identified each new year for performance during the previous calendar year.
“Parq on Speer receives consistent praise from our residents for its unparalleled luxury amenities, direct access to area attractions and spectacular views,” Olaussen said. “We are thrilled to also receive such prestigious third-party acclaim for this extraordinary new community.”
Parq on Speer features cutting edge technology and is one of the first Greystar projects to automate in-home systems with integrated SMART home technologies. All apartments, townhomes and penthouse suites offer Lutron Smart Lighting, Nest Thermostats and Wi-Fi enabled unit entry.
The building is anchored by a spacious, hotel-inspired sixth floor outdoor pool terrace and spa, offering 14,275 square feet for entertaining with an open-air firepit, covered outdoor kitchen and cabanas, and sweeping views of downtown and the Rocky Mountains.
