What Apartment Renters Want in 2019

outdoor pool in DC

At Park Van Ness, we do our best to listen to our residents and provide them with the services (and extra little perks) that make them happy to live here. While DC has many luxury apartment buildings to choose from, sometimes it’s the little things that truly make a place feel like home. 


These days, renters want more than just an upscale apartment. They want amenities like a fitness center, roof deck, pool, grills, and community room for hosting events. Washington’s hot summers make an outdoor pool a very enticing ‘extra’ for DC residents. Park Van Ness gets rave reviews for our gorgeous roof deck with pool, grills, and space to entertain.


All the fancy amenities in the world can’t make up for a feeling of safety. A well-managed building with 24-7 front desk security means residents feel safe and secure. The Van Ness neighborhood happens to be one of the safest areas in the city according to the latest data. While the property is still located in a major city (and it’s always smart to stay alert), our residents report feeling at ease in the community.


A long commute can really be a drag. Luckily, Park Van Ness is just a 3 minute walk from the closest metro station. This makes for an easy trip downtown on the red line. We also offer underground parking for those residents who prefer to drive around town. Additionally, there is a capital bikeshare station just in front of the entrance, making it easy to hop on a bike and get anywhere within city limits quickly and efficiently.

Sense of Community

Ultimately, creating a sense of community for all residents is something that keeps people happy for the long-term. Park Van Ness hosts events like rooftop yoga, ice cream socials, and building-wide happy hours to help our residents mix and mingle and show them how much we appreciate them. Beyond the walls of the Park Van Ness property, the Van Ness community itself is lively and welcoming. There are farmers markets and neighborhood get-togethers hosted frequently to continually boost connections among neighbors and improve the community as a whole.

Renters can afford to be picky these days when it comes to their choice of apartments because Washington DC has a number of great buildings for them to choose from. But, when it comes to the combination of amenities, safety, accessibility, and that special sense of community… Park Van Ness can’t be beat!
