National Church Residences celebrated the Grand Re-opening of Sister’s Court Apartments on Tuesday, April 25, 2017.
Originally built in 1894 as the Little Sisters of the Poor, the building served as a convent and refuge for Savannah’s low-income senior citizens until the building was sold in 1971. It was later transformed into affordable senior housing and, in 2014, was purchased by National Church Residences.
With plans designed by Foley Design Associates Architects and renovations performed by Choate Construction, Sister’s Court Apartments underwent a major historic preservation that included the renovation of two buildings, the demolition of another and the construction of a new four-story building in its place.
Altogether, Sister’s Court now features 78 residential units and common spaces designed to house seniors.
The Grand Re-opening event featured several speakers including Georgia Rep. Mickey Stephens, National Church Residences President and CEO Mark Ricketts and National Church Residences Chairman of the Board of Directors Jim Savage.
