Please view the specific floor plans for Park Avenue 1783 , which is largely unchanged or Park Avenue 1785 , which has undergone numberous changes. Plans A & B - 2-Bedroom Townhouses
Originally, the 132-unit Park Avenue Condominium complex in Park City, Utah, consisted of four types of floor plans. These plans are available for viewing with Adobe Acrobat, briefly described below. They include:
Plans C & D - 3-Bedroom Townhouse and 1-Bedroom Garden Unit
Plan A: (84 Units) This 2-bedroom / 2.5- bath townhouse design contains about 1,400 square feet. As with all the floorplans, the main entrance is through a one-vehicle carport and, except for Plan B, also through an outdoor atrium via a covered walkway. The dining area is in the front, an enclosed kitchen is in the center opposite a half-bath, and a living area in the back, with high 20-foot ceilings and a large masonry firplace, has access to a patio and the grounds. A stairway next to the living area leads to two bedrooms and two full baths upstairs. The bedroom above the carport shares a covered spiral outdoor staircase providing an additional access that allows this bedroom to be a separate (lockout) suite.
Plan B: (16 Units) This is also a 2-bedroom / 2.5-bath townhouse design very similar to Plan A. However, it includes an interior staircase, which increases the size to 1,468 square feet, because this plan is situated directly above a one bedroom unit. Since Plan B resides on a second and third level, it does not have a patio with direct access to the grounds. It also shares an atrium and walkway with the one bedroom unit below it (Plan D).
Plan C: (16 Units) Although this is a 3-bedroom / 2.5-bath townhouse, reportedly with 1,810 square feet, it basically has the same downstairs dimensions and configuration as the Plan A townhouse. It has an extended roof design next to the fireplace that provides for an additional third bedroom, otherwise, the second floor is also similar to the other townhouses. This bedroom reduces the living room ceiling to about 8-feet, compared to very spacious ceilings of 20-feet in Plans A and B, and is not entirely enclosed because it has a couple half-height walls that overlook the downstairs counter between the kitchen and living areas. It appears the total area of Plan C assumes this open area is enclosed for calculation purposes and therefore may overstate the area by at least 100 square feet. Unlike Plans A and B that make it easy to add a loft or extra bedroom in the high living room ceiling area, there is no surplus ceiling space for expansion with Plan C.
Plan D: (16 Units). This is a 1-bedroom ground floor design that contains about 658 square feet. It has a bedroom that faces the atrium near the entrance and a combined living-dining-kitchen area with access to a patio and grounds in the back with a full bath in the middle. As previously noted, this unit is underneath the Plan B townhouse and therefore shares the outdoor atrium. Carport parking is not directly in front of these one-bedroom units, but instead is provided by four separate buildings with 2 to 6 covered spaces each; two of these buildings also contain laundry facilities.
In summary, the Park Avenue Condominium complex initially had a total of 100 2-bedroom townhouses, 16 3-bedroom townhouses and 16 1-bedroom units. However, because of excess space affored by the atrium and high living room ceilings, numerous modifications and additions have been made, primarily to the Plan A townhouses. Many of these units now have a loft bedroom, a few have a third and even fourth bedroom, a couple have a third bathroom and, in the atrium area, around 30 townhouses have an expanded entry / dining area or hot tub.
A constant variation from the diagrams above that is present in the back of all carport areas today is a "mechanical closet" that is also directly in front of the "court" or atrium.
