1st Lake Apartments Win First Place Beautification Awards

1st Lake Properties is proud to announce the winners of last quarter’s Beautification Award. Each quarter, several properties that meet a set of distinguished criteria are recognized as part of the 1st Lake Properties Beautification Award program.

1st Lake awards first, second and third place in different categories to a selection of their New Orleans area apartment communities. Last quarter’s first place winners were the Brewster Commons apartments in Covington; Park Oaks, Windmill Creek South and Crossings apartments in Metairie; and Cypress Creek and Palmetto Creek apartments in River Ridge. These properties are honored to receive this highly esteemed and sought after distinction.

Each quarter, secret shoppers are sent to inspect and score each 1st Lake property, looking for excellence in areas like cleanliness of the grounds and common areas including pool and mail areas; landscaping; signage; and maintenance of stairwells, balconies and parking areas.

Each 1st Lake property who won the first place Beautification Award last quarter was very deserving. Brewster Commons is a relatively new addition to the 1st Lake family, and boasts beautifully manicured outdoor grounds features and extremely well kept common areas. The Crossings apartments in Metairie are surrounding by lush greenery that’s regularly tended to with care. The Windmill Creek South apartments in Metairie are adorned with elaborately designed landscaping including bridges arching over creeks and walking paths. Cypress Creek, Palmetto Creek and Park Oaks are also equipped with lovely pools and greenery.

The team at 1st Lake Properties would like to extend their congratulations to each of the Beautification Award winners and good luck to next quarter’s contenders!
