AlliedCook participated in a notable ribbon-cutting event last weekend in Eliot, attended by town officials, the Chamber of Commerce, state legislative leaders, as well as representatives from the offices U.S. Senator Susan Collins and U.S. Senator Angus King. We were all celebrating the DOUBLING of the amount of market rate housing reserved for seniors in the area. Nineteeen apartments are still available at The Residences At Eliot Commons, although they’re going fast. Visit their web site if you’d like to learn more.
As Dan Cook explains in this video, the project was somewhat challenging to build, with a very tight budget and an extremely tight schedule, but it’s a welcome new addition in this small Maine town. The apartments are one- and two-bedroom units with high ceilings. Each has a dishwasher, wood cabinets, granite counter tops, washer and dryer hook-ups and wiring for cable TV and internet. The Residences at Eliot Commons is designed as a senior living community, which requires at least one household member to be age 62 or older. Additional occupants may include other family members including spouses, children and grandchildren. A common meeting room facility is available for residents and there is a fitness room.
