Premiere community has great views and easy valley access
Rick Killpack has lived in places such as Los Angeles, Phoenix and Denver before moving to Draper. He raves that Utah is “the most beautiful place aesthetically” while he describes Draper as, “a clean, friendly, safe community.” Killpack found the perfect place to hang his hat in Draper’s new Triton Terrace located just off the Bangerter Parkway.
With amenities such as a pool and hot tub, a BBQ area, a playground and a basketball court, all with valley vistas, Killpack describes residency at Triton Terrace as “resort-style living.”
“I have a balcony that has the perfect view of the valley,” Killpack said. He touts Triton Terrace’s easy access to the freeway as well as shopping in the Bangerter Crossing area or the outlet mall at Traverse Mountain. Where getting out into nature is concerned, Killpack added, “It’s really close to a lot of paved, gravel and dirt trails for hiking and biking.”
Killpack has found the complex to be made up of friendly tenants and helpful community managers such as Lauren Nichols and her colleagues whom he says offer excellent customer service. He also appreciates what he calls “the niceties you wouldn’t find in other places” like how the parking lots are kept clean and the attention that’s paid to landscaping, as well as what he describes as attractive paint colors on the buildings.
“We are one of the smallest communities locally so we’re able to remember names and cater to our residents. Because we’re small and plan to stay small, we can really personalize our services,” Nichols said. “That feeling of community keeps people here,” she added. Fun activities for residents including pizza parties, food truck events, pool parties and movie nights are planned. And with technology companies nearby and UTA’s plans for a Trax station in the area, “It’s a prime location for sure,” Nichols said.
Killpack was one of the first to choose Triton Terrace for his new home. He’d driven by and admired the complex for months while it was being built until he finally stopped in to get more information. He found that “the prices were fair” and he was further delighted to find that “cable is included which makes it easier to pay your bills because it’s all bundled.” Killpack also appreciates that Triton Terrace offers washer/dryer hook-ups or the choice of having that equipment provided, even in their one-bedroom apartments.
Triton Terrace is pet friendly with their “Scentral Park” for dogs and health-friendly with indoor and outdoor gyms as well as a cardio theatre where residents can use a fitness-on-demand program to choose a session of yoga or a workout geared toward a particular area they hope to focus on such as cardio, flexibility or strength.
Carol Morris is Vice President of Triton Investments, the Draper-based family business that, together with investors, owns and operates Triton Terrace. “We’ve been in this industry for over thirty years, so we know what the residents want and what they don’t like. We decided to make this pet friendly, to have high-end amenities and to not charge hidden fees…that’s a pet peeve of a lot of people,” Morris said. Not only are the complex’s interior features high-end with granite countertops and faux hardwood floors, they’ve even gone the extra mile in giving all residents walk-in closets.
Triton Terrace is made up of mostly one and two bedroom apartments, but they also offer nine luxury townhomes for people or families looking for more space. “Everything here is catered to the resident. It’s very easy and classy living,” Morris said. Residents can even choose to have a wall painted with an accent color and Triton management can help arrange for furnishings when needed. Everyone at Triton gets reserved covered parking and garages are also an option. The management of Triton strives to be flexible on lease terms in order to accommodate tenants’ needs.
“We are the perfect place to move into when you leave your parents’ home, are waiting for your house to be built, for people tired of taking care of snow removal or yard work and house maintenance, those relocating from out of state, or for avid thrill seekers with Utah’s pleasures like mountain biking, skiing and hiking nearby,” Morris said.
“It’s a great place to live–affordable, friendly, clean, new and in a great location,” Killpack said.
