Future residents got their first look at Hamilton Tower at Providence Point on Sunday, July 28. The Phase II expansion of Providence Point in Pittsburgh’s Scott Township neighborhood involved additions, changes, and improvements throughout the Providence Point campus, as well as construction of the 70-unit apartment tower, Hamilton Tower.
The expansion began two years ago with a groundbreaking on June 14, 2017 for Providence Chapel. That beautiful new space for worship and reflection was completed last winter.
Most of the other portions of the Phase II expansion are also complete. Some of the changes were done to accommodate the increased number of residents that will be served when Hamilton Tower opens. Expanded dining areas, the addition of common spaces, and the new prep kitchen are examples. Other updates, like the new climate-controlled information technology space and updated exhibition cooking area, were in response to changing times. Some of the upgrades were done to ensure that Providence Point maintains its aesthetics and functionality, such as the new carpet and tile laid in the Conservatory and other high-traffic areas.
More than 80 percent of the Hamilton Tower apartment residences have been reserved, and residents will begin moving in by mid-October.
Providence Point’s marketing team is working closely with future residents to ensure a smooth transition. Solution Seminars with downsizing experts, moving companies, technology support and others are being held on a regular basis. Folks who already have their reservation were given a chance to see a ‘model’ Hamilton Tower Carbon floor plan. On the walk-through, they could see the finishes, carpet, crown molding, tiling, walk-in closets, and other features that their apartment will also include. Moving dates will soon be scheduled as well.
Still, Hamilton Tower construction buzzes around the clock in anticipation of the October completion date. Marketing Counselor Anne Frank noted, “Our current residents have been very patient throughout the construction and updates. The future residents are more excited than ever about their pending move to our community. We are looking forward to both—the end of construction and the welcoming of several new community members.”
Celebrations to mark the opening of Hamilton Tower and the 10th anniversary of Providence Point will be held later this year.
Al Allison added, “We have so much to be thankful for and to look forward to in the coming year—as a community and as an organization.”
There are still several very desirable floor plans available in Hamilton Tower, and there is some availability in the existing residential towers, and in the patio home neighborhood.
