Heritage Tower, located in the city of Longview, Texas is a 36-unit rehabilitated community for seniors. As an adaptive reuse development, Heritage Tower will provide affordable one and two-bedroom units within a single six-story building with elevator service.
Originally constructed in 1935, the building was conceived at the start of the East Texas oil boom during the depth of the Great Depression when Longview became a center for area commerce associated with the vast nearby oil fields. Additionally, the Texas Historical Commission writes that it is a beautiful local example of Art Deco design.
There will be a large common area on the first and second floors for all residents to use and enjoy. Spaces have been dedicated to a lounge area with plush seating and a large T.V., a furnished fitness room, and an internet café/library.
This development was made possible by the partnership of developer Four Corners Development, general contractor Hamilton Builders, and the Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs.
