Marketing News

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.
