The much-anticipated Antiquity Heights Apartments, in the Antiquity neighborhood off N.C. 115 in Cornelius, should be ready for tenants by mid-June, according to Solstice Parters Manager Cathy Connors.
The apartments have been built as “workforce housing,” intended to provide an affordable option to middle-income individuals and families, with monthly rent ranging from $550 to $800 a month, depending on the size of the apartment. The units include:
- 10, 1-bedroom units, ranging in rent from $550 to $650 per month
- 64, 2-bedroom units, ranging in rent from $625 to $700 per month
- 20, 3-bedroom units, ranging in rent from $700 to $800 per month
“We were actually able to lower some of our prices from what we originally thought,” Ms. Connors said.
The units are not pet-friendly, unless requested and verified for reasonable accommodation for disabled. Planned indoor amenities include a community room, computer lab and exercise equipment area, and outdoor amenities include a picnic area with grills and a play area in the large lawn in front of the buildings.
Last week the apartment management company, GEM Management, received 24 applications, company representative Danny Ellis said. “There’s a tremendous amount of interest.”
“They’re beating down the doors, so that’s a good thing,” Ms. Connors said.
Over the next four weeks, crews will put finishing touches on the buildings, and will finish the landscaping and irrigation, she said. The certificates of occupancy are expected June 15.
