Ashleigh Place Senior Apartments, a new 80-unit affordable-housing development in Richmond Hill, will hold its grand opening celebration at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The program will feature a ribbon cutting by Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler and the Richmond Hill/Bryan County Chamber of Commerce, followed by a catered fried chicken and barbecue lunch on the lawn and tours of the new apartments and community spaces. In addition, Ashleigh Place will demonstrate the new telemedicine equipment that will be available to all residents.
A special part of the grand opening is a senior information expo. Exhibitors from a dozen or more senior-service providers will distribute educational information and product samples during and after lunch.
Ashleigh Place is a tax-credit property developed by The Humanities Foundation of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Seniors age 55 and older qualify for residency based on their annual gross income.
In addition to one- and two-bedroom apartment homes, Ashleigh Place includes a computer center, library, community living room, exercise room, arts-and-crafts room, resident garden plots, laundry facilities and a community food pantry for residents.
Ashleigh Place’s apartments feature all kitchen appliances, 9-foot-high ceilings, hardwood floors in the kitchens, carpeted bedrooms and washer-dryer connections.
