Creating Community

Love where you live

At Weidner Apartment Homes, we create Love Notes for our residents at all of our apartment communities to show how much we appreciate them.

We encourage involvement in little ways to help us feel connected to our “place”. Continuing to surprise and delight our residents with Love Notes is a great way to inspire creativity, a healthy sense of community, and fun.

What is a


Simple things created in a community that “surprise and delight” while creating a mutual love affair between people and their place.

Weidner wants to encourage engagement in all of our communities so that each resident feels a deeper sense of connection and pride in the place they live.

More About

Weidner Love Notes

At Weidner, we value building communities and strive to create places where residents can connect, find comfort, and thrive. Our Love Notes program is one of the many ways we work to achieve that goal.

The mutual love affair between people and their place is one of the most powerful influences in our lives, yet rarely thought of in terms of a relationship. As cities begin thinking of themselves as engaged in a relationship with their citizens, and citizens begin to consider their emotional connections with their place, we open up new possibilities in community, social, and economic development by including the most powerful motivator – the human heart. Weidner embraces this philosophy and creates Love Notes for our residents in each of our communities.
