The Commons is Huntsville's first 55+ Active Adult Community and is very different from other apartments or retirement living options in our area.

A 55+ Active Adult Community, like The Commons, is an age restricted community. That means we are required by the 1995 Housing for Older Persons Act to certify that 80% of our Members are age 55 or older. Because of this requirement, at least one Commons Member living in each apartment must be age qualified. This means your neighbors will have lifestyles, interests and stories like yours!

At The Commons, there are no Homeowners Association fees, buy-in options, or entrance fees. All you pay is your monthly rent, and the cost for any of our optional services you choose to enjoy.We offer seven different floor plan options with various bedroom, bath, den, patio and balcony options. Our apartments range in size from a one-bedroom, one-bath at 692 square feet to a two-bedroom, two-bath with a den and patio or balcony at 1,325 square feet.

  • Sounded great however way beyond her budget.

    Sounded great however way beyond her budget.

  • From what I saw of the commons, this seemed like a nice place to stay. Everything was clean and staff and residents were friendly. Though it did not quite fit my needs, as I preferred not to live in apartments, The Commons seemed like a nice place to live.

  • That is what I call Security in my book!

    The way it was designed is great for someone like my moms age. She would need the security. I feel secure for her to be there, people cant go in without a keycard or a code and that makes it's secure in my book. The residents have a card but the family get a code . Just not anyone can get in, that makes me feel secure. Also why I chose the facility. They keep it exceptionally clean in and outside , very tidy.
