What is a 55+ Active Adult Community?

A 55+ Active Adult Community, like The Commons, is an age restricted community. That means we are required by the 1995 Housing for Older Persons Act to certify that 80% of our members are age 55 or older. Because of this requirement, at least one Commons member living in each apartment must be age qualified. This means your neighbors will have lifestyles, interests and stories like yours.

Similar communities offer housing with bedroom and living areas, and outdoor areas that require little or no maintenance. Most 55+ Active Adult Communities are operated through a Homeowner's Association with residents owning their home and paying monthly fees for common area maintenance. At The Commons, there are no Homeowner's Association fees, buy-in options, or entrance fees. All you pay is your monthly rent, and the cost for any optional services you choose to enjoy.

What size are the apartments?

At The Commons, we offer four different floor plan options with various bedroom, bath, den, patio and balcony options. Our apartments range in size from a one-bedroom, one-bath at 692 square feet to a two-bedroom, two-bath with a den and patio or balcony at 1,325 square feet. Click here to view our Floor Plans.
