New Senior Living Facility to be Unveiled in District 6

Birmingham City Councilor Sheila Tyson has a passion for serving and promoting the benefits of a balanced quality of life to all constituents especially her beloved senior citizens. On Saturday May 28, 2016, at 1 p.m. she will join community leaders and cut the ribbon for the new upgrades at the Princeton Towers II senior living facility.

According to the National Association Of Realtors® “2015 Remodeling Impact Report”, $326.1 billion was spent in the U.S. on remodeling by the end of 2015, adding that sixty-four percent of homeowners, including renters, found increased happiness in their homes once projects were completed. In today’s growing economy, senior (assisted) living is the fastest growing long-term care residential option for seniors. Assisted living facilities, such as Princeton Towers, with their wide range of services, provide a senior housing solution for adults who can live independently, but also require some assistance.

The newly remodeled living quarters upgrades took off first with the redesign of the infrastructures to townhomes. Coupled with new light fixtures and granite countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms, the newly installed hardwood floors enhance the warm appeal of the senior homes. Councilor Tyson is pleased that simple reconstruction to older facilities plays such a large role in overall community revitalization.

“We are very happy to have Princeton Towers II in the West End community and equally as excited about the many transformations that have taken place,” Councilor Tyson said. “The housing and reconstruction development from Lomb Avenue to Center Street is unmatched and the ongoing revitalization makes a tremendous economic impact in Birmingham. I’m certain that our seniors will enjoy their new spaces and the many amenities that help them feel right at home. ”

Princeton Towers II is an affordable apartment community situated in the heart of Birmingham’s beloved West End Neighborhood. This apartment community contains 94 rental units and will be home nearly 150 residents when fully occupied.
