Beaumont: 128-unit Providence aimed at 55-plus rentersBeaumont: 128-unit Providence aimed at 55-plus rentershttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=12882015-04-14T10:14:00Z2015-04-14T00:00:00Z

BEAUMONT - Providence, a new apartment development specifically for people 55 years of age or older, could be open for leasing by early May.

The development on Major Dr. will have 128 total units with 116 in the main three-story, elevator-served building and 12 bungalow units. The bungalows, six units apiece, will have their own garages.

Chris Akbari is the developer of the $14 million development. The property occupies more than nine acres of what was once pasture land on the south side of Boys Haven.

Nine of the bungalow units will be fully accessible for people with disabilities, featuring extra-wide doors, walk-in tubs and accessible kitchens.

A single-bedroom apartment, about 700 sf, could cost anywhere from $300 to $600 in monthly rent for a 55-year-old or older whose earnings are a percentage of the area's median income.

The main building will feature an activities room, a fitness room, a beauty salon, business center and mailbox room. The property will be fenced and gated.

Akbari said Providence already is working with King's Pharmacy across the street because Providence residents are likely to use the pharmacy.

Akbari said its presence also could stimulate development of a retail strip along the east side of Major Dr. across from the apartments.
