Affordable-housing complex upgrading to luxury apartments

affordablehousingThe Bluffton House, an affordable apartment community located at 20 Simmonsville Road, is upgrading to two- and three-bedroom luxury apartments. Vacant apartments that were once home to low-income families who paid discounted monthly rent are being completely remodeled with new appliances, granite-like countertops, wood-style flooring and ceiling fans in every bedroom.

The company behind the remodeling is a Massachusetts-based business called Aspen Square. The complex has also been rebranded as Avalon Shores, with future plans for a new fitness center, Internet cafe, dog park, putting greens and more. Two-bedroom units that are 943 square feet are renting between $1,100 and $1,140 per month. Three bedroom units are 1,081 square feet and are renting between $1,300 and $1,340 per month.
