With its striped green awnings and concierge-like front desk, this tall residential building is often mistaken for a hotel. Park Lake Towers was built in 1975 and has a half-Olympic sized pool, spa and sun deck on the ground floor. Residents enjoy a fitness room with steam bath and sauna and a two level parking garage. A recreation area is also available for party rentals.

Unit Floor Plans:
These waterfront Orlando condos at Park Lake Towers resemble an old New York compact living. With more of a multi-room concept living, these units tend to have closed off kitchens, corridors and separate dining and living spaces. Plenty of these units have been renovated over the years using cosmetic enhancements to allow open floor layouts. In good old New York fashion, many owners purchase the neighboring unit to theirs and expand the existing floor plan, allowing expanded views, more bedrooms and bathrooms and maybe even a second kitchen. Keep in mind that once it’s all done you will pay two condo fees, and quite possibly two mortgages!
