The leasing office at Hessel on the Park is experiencing a power outage -- this is also leaving the office without phones. A tree fell on a power line during today's storm. Ameren is currently working to remedy the problem and we have an electrician on site beginning repairs to the office.
Power should be restored tomorrow.
If you need assistance, we can be reached at the Nantucket Cove office at 217-344-8800.
Thank you for your patience :)
Hello I'm currently renting one of your apartments and I have neighbors that are up and outside at all hours of the night. Its currently 11 p.m and they are sitting in the car with the music turned up and what I assume are teenagers as well as adults outside yelling and screaming. I enjoy having my windows open at night and have 2 small children that have been woken up because of there carelessness. I've witnessed police on two separate occasions at said apartment as well as the one directly across from me so I know I'm not the only one that's complaining this issue. My only suggestion would be to do a better background check with past landlords and a better check with section 8 because your going to lose a bunch of good reliable tendents all because of a bunch of lease jumpers.
Good Afternoon Everyone,
I hope you are all off to the start of a great weekend! Knowing that the weather is nice, BBQ's are firing up, pools are open, and it's the time of the year for summer fun to begin, I wanted to share something with everyone about healthy and convenient dining options for the days when you just don't have enough time to make a smart meal plan.
This was actually forwarded to us from McKinley's Wellness Director Meredith Mitchell. She's always sharing great advice for healthy living. Meredith sent:
Life can get very busy sometimes and when it does, the weekly grocery shopping trip can slide down to the bottom of the priority list. If you travel frequently you don't always have the opportunity to grocery shop or have a fridge to keep your food in. So, what you're left looking for is something quick and convenient, right!? No problem! There are several restaurants that offer healthier selections and provide nutrition facts so you can make the right choice :-).
The website listed below includes several restaurants to choose from. If you don't see your restaurant of choice on my list, you can look for the food item you usually order and find the calorie and nutrition breakdown.
Thank you Meredith for the great information and inspiration on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I'm proud to share what you do for McKinley with our residents here in Champaign, IL.
If anyone else has healthy recipes or suggestions, please post in the comments below.
Enjoy your weekend,
Hi, I am a new resident at 1607 Valley Rd, Champaign IL. I came to Hessel on the Park to sign up for the lease 2 months ago, and I just moved in a day ago. When I signed up for the lease, I requested an apartment that is on the top floor since I am a college student, and I don't want to be disturbed by anyone living on top of me ( I have been moving out few times since in my old apartments the people on top of me made lots of noise, and I am tired of that). Unfortunately, the leasing agent forgot about that and put me on the bottom floor. They gave me a new lease that ends in early August, so that they would assign me another apartment. Where I live now there are many children living on top of me, and they were jumping and running around, and that really annoyed me. For me, the most important thing is about quietness, and I don't really care about other things that much. I'm taking summer class, so I really want to focus on my school work. I am very tired of this. I want to ask: If in August, the office cannot find me the apartment I want, can I move out? Clearly, I do not want to spend the whole year living in my current apartment. Thanks alot
My lease ends midway through June, so I am guessing I pay my old rent for the first part of June, and the new rent for the second part of June. I am trying to find the exact amount.
I am not in town now. I was asked to email "Nichole Porter", but I already did twice and haven't heard back at all. The 'my.mckinley' portal doesn't show me the correct rent amount due. I tried calling the office, but all I get is an automated voice mail and no human response whatsoever.
I was given Nichole Porter's card, and was asked to send an email to know the actual rent amount. Who do I actually need to contact? Who can I contact so I actually get a response?
Again, I will only be back in town a couple of days after the 1st. So I need to know what I should be doing.
Good Evening Everyone,
First off, thank you all very much for your patience and understanding as we made multiple repairs and upgrades to the Nantucket Cove and Hessel on the Park pools this Spring. At Nantucket Cove you will notice some bright, brand new, blue pool tiles have been installed and are looking wonderful. At Hessel on the Park, you won't believe the difference a fresh royal blue coat of pool paint has made. After lots of time and hard work.....
WE ARE officially open for business at both sites and welcome all of our wonderful residents to come out and enjoy the pools. It looks like beautiful weather for tomorrow and if we are lucky....the rain will hold off for the weekend :)
A few things to keep in mind while enjoying the pool this Summer:
1) ALL CHILDREN under 16 years of age MUST be supervised by a responsible adult at all times
2) The pool is open 9am thru sun-down (roughly 9pm) daily (weather dependent)
3) No alcohol allowed
4) There is no lifeguard on duty--no jumping or diving in the pool for your own safety
5) Walk, do not run, on the pool deck
6) The pools are for residents only. Any guests must be accompanied by a resident at all times.
There are "Rules and Regulations" posted at each site and should be followed appropriately in addition to those listed above. Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions. I can be reached via email all weekend at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can be reached any other time at 217-356-4012 (Hessel on the Park Office) or 217-344-8800 (Nantucket Cove Office).
Please have a SAFE and FUN Memorial Day Weekend!!

I've been living at hessel on the park for not even a full month yet and I'm ready to leave. I would never recommend anyone living here. Still people are not cleaning up after their animals, my water isn't even clear and smells like a lake most of the time, I've had to contact maintenance twice in the 3 weeks I've lived here along with many other issues I've had. The apartment is not worth what I'm paying every month. I'm not happy with this place and will be leaving as soon as my lease is up!
