The Renaissance Park senior community at 205 E. Memorial Drive in Hinesville held a ribbon cutting Wednesday to showcase the completion of the apartment complex.
Area residents toured one of the apartments and the community area of the development.
The apartments are for people 55 and older, and the development already has 100 percent occupancy. It has 42 one- or two-bedroom apartments that include amenities such as a refrigerator, dishwasher and an oven.
The development also has a fitness room and a computer room, and the staff provides activities for residents.
The community does have income limits. For a single occupant, the income minimum is $908 per month and maximum yearly income is $20,460, according to LaRee Taylor, leasing specialist with Affordable Equity Partners.
"This is just finished about a couple months ago," said Shey Justice, the partners’ director of leasing in southeast operations, about the development. "And we were able to secure all of the residents prior to the opening of the community, and once we opened, we were able to move all of the residents in."
Justice said residents have told her they feel "this is a very special and beautiful property in Hinesville that they haven’t been able to really find something like this at the rents that are currently offered here."
"And so it’s affordable to them, it works within their budget, and then they also are receiving a beautiful brand new apartment for an affordable price," she said.
"Residents sit out here all day long, this is what they love to do," Taylor said. "They love to interact with one another and it’s just a great place for people to get to know one another."
One of the residents, Janneth Bethea, 67, attended the ribbon cutting.
"Absolutely love it," she said. "It’s like a piece of paradise in the middle of Hinesville."
Bethea said she loves the people in the community and the amenities provided.
