(November 6, 2023) – When BellaAge begins pre-leasing its 95 one- and two-bedroom apartments in 2024, the complex will launch a new chapter in EveryAge senior living. Along with a portfolio of continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), PACE programs, and affordable housing communities, EveryAge will offer a lifestyle rental community in downtown Hickory, NC. Set in a walkable urban environment, BellaAge will feature open concept floor plans, covered parking, a host of enriching amenities, and a 24-hour onsite concierge/manager.
Hickory’s local scene includes a wealth of restaurants, from coffee shops to fine dining. Plus, within walking distance are yoga and fitness studios, a movie theater, a twice-weekly farmers market, a post office, wine shops, taphouses, and a community theater. Also nearby is Lenoir-Rhyne University, with its sports and cultural offerings, which is accessible via the City Walk, a wide, paved, picturesque pathway through town.
Unlike a CCRC, which features a buy-in and monthly fees, BellaAge is designed to be more flexible. Residents aren’t asked to commit to a specific cottage, villa, or apartment for the extent of their retirement years. Instead, they can enjoy upscale living on their own time frame. And being in the middle of the city center, with its variety of shops, restaurants, and businesses, makes for an exciting change of pace. BellaAge also offers the option of having a pied-a-terre in town with the opportunity to step away and travel more frequently. In addition, it’s a more affordable option than a CCRC when you aren’t yet in need of regular healthcare services. And if you feel that you’re not quite at the age for a CCRC and want to live among 55+ neighbors – quiet but active – it’s tailor-made for your interests. In short, BellaAge is a terrific way to capitalize on the early years of retirement, when you’re enjoying the time, the freedom, and the joy of calling the shots.
BellaAge is anticipating move-ins in early 2025, but now’s the time to reserve an apartment. Our leasing agent can show you floor plans, fixtures and finishes, a list of amenities, and all the benefits of residency. To learn more, call Kim Kilday at 828.465.8014. It’s the right time to embrace retirement living exactly as you want it – with new construction, mountain views, and in a city that’s been called one of America’s most beautiful and affordable!
