Renovation Update

Announcement for Schoolhouse Flats

Good afternoon Resident!

I wanted to take the time to send out an update on the progress of the renovations within your building and also regarding the interior hallways.

As we are coming to a near end of the interior renovations I would like to take a moment and thank you all for being so understanding of the work that has been done while living here. I know from experience that living in a home while under renovations can be sometimes trying but the end result is always worth it!

I am excited to announce that we will be installing new interior hallway flooring...

Let me introduce myself!

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Hi everyone! My name is Kara Young and I just recently joined the McKinley Hyde Park team as the new Community Manager. I come to you with 15 years of property management experience. I was born in New Orleans, LA and my home is now in Saint Petersburg where I love spending time with my two fur babies Brees and Abby. I enjoy spending my time sailing, playing the violin and traveling. I sail in many races with my father to include the Regata Del Sol from Tampa Bay to Isla Mujeres just off the coast of Cancun in an open ocean race with a distance of 456 miles. LOT'S of fun!

I hope to...

Good. Welcome. I'm really glad you enjoy sailing. Will someone please come take out the trash! Tuesday and Friday. It doesn't change.

Hi Jared, I live in #14 and I think the trash pick up is on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

Jared, I am talking about Brooklyn Flats. Not sure if that is the apartments you live in.

Both of you are mistaken and not addressing the issue of McKinley taking out the trash. I live in Ivy Flats. I have complained about this issue since move in back in April. Ivy Flats trash and/or/both recycling is on Tuesday and Friday.

I apologize, that this has been an issue. I want to get this addressed quickly. I am going to address this with my maintenance staff today to make sure this is not an issue moving forward. Thank you, for bringing this to my attention. Please feel free to reach out to me with any further concerns.

The dryers suck

Feedback Problem for Schoolhouse Flats

Once again my clothes are left damp because these dryers suck. They're pathetic and it's ridiculous that I have to pay for them when they don't even dry my clothes...'s picture
alia.short@mcki... McKinley Employee

Hello Alex,

We are sorry to hear that the dryers are not fully drying your clothes. We would be happy to speak with the company that services the washers and dryers. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. 

Thank you,

Schoolhouse Leasing Office Hours

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Good Afternoon Residents,

To better serve you, we will be closing the Schoolhouse (Downtown) leasing office and combining forces with our Palma Ceia Leasing office located at 2402 Teresa Circle, Tampa 33629. The Schoolhouse office hours will be "by appointment" only. The goal is to ensure that you receive a high level of customer service from one of our dedicated Customer Care Associates located in the Palma Ceia office.

You may continue to drop rent off at the Schoolhouse location, as this will still be collected.

The phone number of 813-304-2776 is still active...'s picture

For tomorrow only, 4/18, we will have restricted leasing office hours. We will be open from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm and will return to normal business hours of 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Thursday, 4/19. Our after hours line along with emergency maintenance will be available should any emergencies arise. All other inquiries we will address promptly on Thursday morning.

Thanks so much and have a great night!

Announcement for Schoolhouse Flats

Good Afternoon Schoolhouse Flats Residents,

I want to thank you all for your patience as we have worked through the washer and dryer situation. We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience it may have caused you and we are working diligently to fix the issues.

Due to the inconvenience with the washers being the wrong size and issues with the payment systems, as a courtesy we will be awarding a $50 credit per apartment home for the inconvenience. You will see this credit reflected in your accounts this week.

The washers will be changed out tomorrow.

We do hope...
