Affordable Housing Options for Seniors Expand as NHE, Partners Open New Renaissance Place Senior Apartments in Upstate

Greenville’s deficit in both affordable senior-targeted housing gets a big boost Tuesday as Upstate-based property management and development firm NHE, Inc. and partners hold a grand opening for a  new affordable housing community for seniors ages 55 and better.  The short November 30 ceremony will commence at 11 a.m. and be followed by tours and refreshments.

The development of the 57-unit Renaissance Place Senior Apartments in Greenville joins more than 90 other NHE-managed affordable housing properties in markets across the Palmetto State, from Spartanburg and Gaffney to Rock Hill, Columbia, Charleston and Anderson.

“NHE is excited to help bring Renaissance Place to fruition, which we consider to be an excellent addition to Greenville’s affordable housing options for seniors,” said Taylor Davis, CEO of NHE, Inc. “We continue to explore the right opportunities in markets across South Carolina for addition of high-quality affordable housing and are pleased to work with our other partners in this important project to benefit our senior population.”

Renaissance Place is a joint effort made possible with funding through IBERIABANK, a division of First Horizon Bank and its Iberia Civic Impact Partners group, with project development undertaken as a joint venture of NHE, Creative Builders and SCG Development Partners LLC of Tysons Corner, Virginia.

The project is also supported by the Greenville Housing Fund, Community Works, and the City of Greenville.  Apartment units at Renaissance Place are available to seniors aged 55 and better who earn 50% and 60% of area median incomes.

Located near Bob Jones University at 119 Logan Knoll Lane, the 1- and 2-bedroom apartment homes have excellent proximity to shopping, dining, healthcare and numerous community amenities.  The location also provides easy access to Haywood Mall, downtown Greenville, grocery shopping and multiple major thoroughfares.

Renaissance Place Senior Apartments units range from 749 square feet to 1,077 square feet. Within each unit, residents enjoy high ceilings, wooden cabinets, high-quality laminate countertops and luxury vinyl tile flooring, among other features.  Apartments feature ENERGY STAR appliances, indicative of excellent energy efficiency, and include refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, garbage disposal and dishwasher.  ENERGY STAR windows, HVAC systems, lighting and fans are included, as are washer-dryer hookups and prewiring for cable and internet.
