About the community

The Anwelt Heritage Apartments turn the historic Anwelt Shoe factory into beautiful, eco-friendly apartments for active adults 55 and better.

Anwelt Has 86 one and two-bedroom residences ranging in size from 656 to over 1200 square feet. The sun- filled residences highlight architectural details of the historic structure, such as exposed brick walls, soaring ceilings with original wood beams, and oversized windows. The apartments have views of the Nashua River, courtyard gardens, or the nearby historic homes.

The Anwelt apartments have been designed specifically for residents 55 and better. We used the principles of Universal Design, a system that combines aesthetics with practicality, to help maintain the independence, safety, and dignity of residents. In keeping with the principles of universal design, the building features wide interior doors and hallways. Each unit is designed for private, independent, all-one-floor living. Heating and air-conditioning are individually-controlled, and the thermostats have easy-to-read displays and temperature controls. Doors and cabinets feature comfortable lever handles. Cabinets are hung slightly lower, and electrical outlets are installed slightly higher so that they will be easier to access and more comfortable to use.

The story to end all stories!

After weeks of verbal and email messages and sending documents piece meal and telling the staff we where coming in on Saturday, NO ONE was here! On THE WAY HERE WE RECEIVED A TEXT MESSAGE THAT WE NEEDED BIRTH CERTIFICATES! We had to leave our truck over the weekend in the parking lot(TEMPS WHERE IN 90'S). Wife got hers Monday morning at the city hall in Providence. Her BC was not enough = mine was still in the truck somewhere in a box. Had to unload truck on to sidewalk(someone took two boxes!) Movers came at 1 PM. Manager still would not let us move into hallway until 4PM. That management has now been replaced with an really OUTSTANDING person! NO comparison!! Tenants really great! The 1st floor window blinds have too short wands! Aluminum windows are not good. Window screens are on the INSIDE!! AWESOME maintenance staff! Adjacent building owns the garden area. Photos do not really show what it really looks like. Hopefully things like that will change.

I Love it here

I chose this community because they have spacious rooms. The building is secure, mail services are right here too. They have a bus to take people to appointment when needed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with flowers everywhere. I enjoy the activities like bingo cards, They have pot lucks once a month. They celebrate birthdays for the month once a month. It is always decorated and celebrated for all holidays. I would recommend this community.

Everything is high end at Anwelt!!

I enjoy living at this community. The staff are nice and quick to respond when I need assistance with anything. They give out a monthly schedule of activities going on in the community. My apartment and the community are kept clean. I have huge tall windows in my third floor apartment. This community is beautiful and I would recommend it.
