I looked at a large number of apartments in Baltimore. I saw 500 Park Ave first and should have stopped there. The first thing I noticed was the facility itself. Very modern and very clean. The second thing is the leasing office and personnel. I have had terrible experiences with leasing personnel in the past, but I have been so blown away by WPM and their employees who work at 500 Park Ave (sidenote: every apartment I saw run by WPM had amazing leasing agents). Josh and Sierra are always friendly which really creates a better, more friendly community. Speaking of the community, everyone I've interacted with is friendly and respectful, mostly young professionals like myself. I have no complaints about my apartment. Some of the quietest apartments in the area (considering it is a busy area). Good quality windows that block noise and temperature. Everything is new and average to above average quality. The few issues I've had (like every new apartment) were promptly fixed. The lobby has free coffee, pinball, a cool little retro video game machine, and a slightly compact gym that has everything you need and is rarely occupied. There have been some issues with fire alarms going off because of people idling their cars in the underground garage, but they are working on resolving them and have sent many e-mail updates along the way. The area is quite safe, particularly during the day. Just know where to walk and where not to (Josh or Sierra could probably let you know). The vast majority of Mt. Vernon is safe. Selling points also include the Mt. Vernon Marketplace two doors down; an amazing Italian place across the street that's open late on weekends; lots of great cafes, bars, and restaurants; and an easy walk to Power Plant Live, Inner Harbor, etc. I can honestly say that this is the best apartment experience I've ever had. I feel very fortunate to live here, and lucky that I was able to take advantage of some of their amazing recent deals.
The property is brand new and looks amazing. This is a vibrant community in the heart of Mount Vernon and is everything that I was looking for. Management goes above and beyond to make this a place to call home, and the maintenance team is top notch--they are honestly one of the highlights of 500 Park. This would be the first place I'd recommend to anyone thinking of moving to Mount Vernon.
Every issue I've had since moving in has been addressed promptly and effectively. Even a new building can have its quirks, but someone is always there to address them as they arise. I've been very happy with my experience here so far.
500 Park represented a great value in a revitalizing neighborhood with immediate vicinity to a coffee shop and the Mt Vernon Marketplace. The rest of the immediate area definitely could use improvement but with the recent apartment influx, development is all but assured. The building construction is solid with quality counters, cabinets and appliances. Space is generous and is a value steal. While, as expected, there were hiccups in moving into a new building while it was under construction, the management office was very responsive. Very happy to live here!
I love the location! The complex is in Mt. Vernon, a charming neighborhood and Baltimore's cultural center. Museums, libraries, parks, churches, galleries, and great restaurants are all within walking distance. Transportation is never a problem. Public transit is available to most destinations in town, and university shuttles stop just a few blocks away. In regard to the community, it's small and livable. The entire building is also highly energy efficient, which should keep your energy bills low. My only drawback I find is that the units are painted a grayish-blue color which slightly reduces the brightness in the apartments, but painting is an option that can be discussed with management. Otherwise, the modern finishes in the units are a nice touch. This is one of the most pet-friendly complexes I've lived in.
Just an easy walk from Downtown Baltimore and adjacent to the Charles Street restaurant district, 500 Park will be a brand new apartment community offering Studio, 1 & 2 BR apartments with a modern architectural aesthetic. Our apartment homes will boast 10 foot ceilings, stylish built-ins, European-style cabinetry, breathtaking city views and so much more.
500 Park's pet-friendly, non-smoking community will feature amenities including surface and garage parking, dog run, swimming pool, courtyard, residents club and more! Check out our full list of amenities here.
500 Park will be the newest addition to Mount Vernon Centre. Mount Vernon Centre is a master planned urban development project encompassing an entire city block and currently consists of Mt. Vernon Marketplace, 520 Park apartments and Ceremony Coffee.
520 Park apartments, 500 Park's sister community, is a historic building that was once a Hoschild-Kohn department store warehouse and has been redeveloped into an upscale apartment community. Mount Vernon Marketplace is a vibrant collection of culinary offerings that has quickly become Baltimore's newest foodie destination. In addition, you'll find Ceremony Coffee, an independent local roastery and coffeehouse offering fine coffees from around the world. Mt. Vernon Centre truly embodies the very best of the Mount Vernon Neighborhood!
