Recently, I participated with a marketing agency hired by Atwater Place to publicize Atwater’s strategy of allowing prospective buyers to have a “sleepover” in one of the towers. Before we purchased we were offered the opportunity to spend a weekend in the John Ross, another adjacent Condo tower, also owned by Gerding Edlen Development (GED). It was a terrific weekend, and allowed us to have some since of what living in a condo near the city would be like.
Fortunately, on the weekend we stayed the weather, which had been horrible, turned absolutely beautiful. When I got up in the early hours the sunlight played in the floor to ceiling windows, and you could see both Mt Hood, and St Helens. It was spectacular. A gift basket was given to us with coffee, cheese, wine, etc. Additionally, we had certificates at the Japanese restaurant La Hana in the Merriweather complex. It was a wonderful, and free weekend. Never mind that we soon were back in mortgage debt. Here is the link.
