The new construction on the Hilltop House Apartments is making rapid progress. The renovations on the old hotel appear completed.

Construction performed by Frank L. Blum Company. Architect Tom Calloway of CJMW Architecture.

Monthly rent ranges from $650 to $900. 104 units total.

Pluses: three blocks from 4th Street and two blocks from our old town (18th Century) village known as Old Salem.

I like the fact it has parking on site and is close proximity to the Strollway as well as restaurants and bars of downtown.
