New luxury apartments renting quickly after opening May 1 on west side of Norman



One of his favorite features is the valet trash.

“Three days a week, residents put the trash out by the front door first thing in the morning and we dispose of it for them,” Kovach said.

In addition to providing convenience for the residents, this service helps keep apartment grounds clean and litter free.

“Some people hate to go to the dumpster,” he said.

That’s not the only special service the Falls provides. Package pickup of deliveries is available at the office, and rather than a small in-house gym, the apartment contract includes gym membership at either Fitness One or the Brookhaven Health Club.

The pet friendly complex also will have a dog park. A resident lounge with a fireplace and entertainment-style kitchen can be reserved for special gatherings, and the Internet Café includes free Wi-Fi, a computer for those who need it, a printer, a copier and a fax machine.

“They really tried to make it an apartment home,” Kovach said. “They started with the front door. They put in the residential doors with decorative glass. Everyone loves that.”

Inside, residents can expect some luxury touches.

“The upstairs apartments have ground-level doors with private stairways, so we’ve eliminated that breezeway look that a lot of apartments have,” Kovach said. “The kitchen has full-sized, side-by-side stainless refrigerators like you would expect to find in a house.”

Energy Star kitchen appliances mean savings in utility bills. Crown molding in the kitchen, a double bowl stainless kitchen sink with a high neck faucet and built in microwave and dishwasher make the kitchen a favorite spot for many residents.

In addition, full-sized washer and dryer connections and double pane energy-efficient, low heat windows, walk-in closets and spacious bathrooms with a soaking tub are just some of the features that have made the new complex popular.
