ARPM Newsletter – Edition 2 – ARPM and HOAs

ARPM manages 11 different Homeowners Associations in the downtown and surrounding areas:

Armenara Plaza, Barcroft, Beaver Terrace, Bryce Jordan Tower, Hetzel Plaza, O’Brien Place, Penn Tower, Southwood Office Centre, University Gateway, University Towers, Westbriar Townhomes

The management of Homeowners Associations includes a long list of duties:

  • Help determine Yearly Budgets
  • Collect monthly condominium fees
  • Maintain the common areas
  • Pay common area maintenance and utility bills
  • Get bids and oversee large common area capital improvement projects
  • Be the point of contact for the Borough/Township government agencies
  • Organize quarterly meetings with the Board of Directors and the annual meetings with the owners.
  • Prepare monthly financial statements

One example of our work with capital improvement projects is the upcoming renovation of the parking deck at Penn Tower.  Due to its age and the affects of Central Pennsylvania weather, the concrete and concrete panels of the garage are showing early signs of breaking down from water infiltration.  In response, the Maintenance team has been working with the Penn Tower Board of Directors and engineering firm Pennoni Associates to make repairs and design changes to improve the structure.  The plan is to repair and replace the damaged concrete and replace the large concrete panels on the exterior with metal plates.  A top coating of Epoxy with an aggregate will help prevent slips and falls.  Additionally, the entrance grade of the entrance ramp will be changed so lower vehicles will not damage this new coating.  Allegheny Restoration was given the contract, with a start date of May 3rd and expect to complete the project before students return for the fall semester.

We currently manage the majority of the individual condo units in the HOAs that we serve, but if you know of anyone in need of our property management services for HOAs, individual rental units, or help with condo sales, please contact the Property Manager, Kris Holzwarth, at [email protected]
