Welcome to Serenity Towers! THE ELEVATION DIFFERENCE: ELEVATING ACCESS TO QUALITY AFFORADABLE HOUSING. Florida is confronted with an increasing demand for quality affordable workforce and senior housing. The availability of safe, clean and affordable rental housing is being outpaced by need. With a growing service sector and the increasing aging of the local population, affordable housing is more critical than ever before. Elevation aspires to be a leading provider of affordable housing that is financially sustainable, exudes an elegant sense of style and is distinctive in its delivery of quality and service.
Serenity Towers® on the St. Johns sits on 2 acres of prime Florida real estate encumbered by the St. Johns River and Lake Monroe. Facing Ft. Mellon Park, Serenity Towers® is a 12-story, 55-and-older independent-living-facility located in the heart of Downtown Sanford. A treasure trove full of history, shopping, fine dining and recreation, Sanford takes its name from Henry Shelton Sanford, founder and purchaser of much of the land he named “The Gate City of South Florida” in 1870. Later, in the 1900s, Serenity Towers® on the St. Johns, located in Sanford’s Historic District, evolved into one of the first properties to provide housing for senior citizens.
The property has been revitalized with state-of-the-art windows, rebuilt elevators, and completely modernized common areas. The Tower has been transformed into a lush high-rise with sophistication at an affordable price. With 360 degree views of lush Central Florida surroundings, this property is a treasure to call home.
As an independent living 55+ age restricted community, our residents are vibrant seniors who enjoy an active lifestyle. Many residents are still in the workplace pursuing their vocations while others are enjoying their retirement in sunny Central Florida. Many of our residents contribute their time and talents to teaching others in our community such skills as beading, knitting, quilting and other arts and crafts activities. Resident night life might include bingo or scrabble one night while enjoying a lovely sunset on the beautiful Serenity patio overlooking Lake Monroe on another night.
