City Zone Apartments

ABOUT THE CITY ZONE APARTMENTS

Built between 2000 and 2009 in a good quality, the City Zone Apartments is apparently a popular building for reliable long term residents. It disposes of about 165 apartments on 14 different levels and of a covered carpark, too.

The front of the building seems to be appealingly designed with crème tiled stairs, leading up to a covered area, which is also covered with the same crème and some additional red tiles. If you enter the complex through the huge glass doors, the pattern of the outside tiling continues in the lobby behind, where it might give a convenient contrast to the grey tiled walls with the bright letter boxes on it. To make this area even more inviting, there are also some plants in huge red pots arranged in the lobby.

There is an onsite manager available in the City Zone Apartments for security reasons and also to ensure the building is always in a good and clean condition.

Although the City Zone Apartments is located in a quiet street, it is at the same time close to the convenient shops, cafes and restaurants in Queen Street, as well as to the Civic Theater and the University district. Some beautiful parks and also the numerous bars and restaurants in K’Road are in walking distance and the next bus station is nearby, too. You can get to the motorways in only a few minutes by car.
