Resident Dawn Bays said the 14 months of renovations at Elgin Manor, a 100-unit affordable senior community, weren’t always easy to live through, but it was worth it.

“It is terrific for someone like myself, who is in the financial position that I’m in, to have a place that is warm and safe and comfortable,” Bays said.

A renovation of the community on Fleetwood Drive just east of McLean Boulevard, the first at the property in decades, included new windows, air conditioning, appliances, flooring and bathroom upgrades to all the apartments.

Site improvements included a redesigned community room and front lobby, modernized lighting and elevators, better security and HVAC systems and new landscaping.
