MAJOR RENOVATIONS COMPLETED IN THE FALL OF 2017! Originally built in 1972 and located in the Southside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Mount Carmel Gardens is a 17-story high-rise that includes 207 efficiency and one bedroom apartment homes for seniors, age 62 and older.
As part of this renovation, apartment interiors were upgraded with all new cabinets, appliances, ceiling fans, new LTV plank flooring in the kitchen and porcelain in the baths, as well as new mechanical systems and a nurse call system.
Building and common area improvements include all new HVAC, LED lighting and drop-in ceiling, as well as new exterior paint, a new roof and new generator. Resident amenities were also added or upgraded including a screening room, beauty salon, fitness center, library, expanded community room, an outdoor recreational area with cooking grills, gazebo, putting green, shuffle board, bike racks and the addition of a controlled entry system into the building and parking areas.
Mount Carmel Gardens offers affordable, independent living at its best. Our unique partnership between government, the faith community and the non-profit sector allows Mount Carmel Gardens to meet the needs of today's seniors and disabled adults who want to age at home and remain independent for as long as possible.

I have lived here 2 years. I chose this building because it was clean and the residents seemed friendly and the fact that utilities were included, they had a beautiful 1 bedroom available for me AND you would be put on the list for section 8 assistance was a real deal breaker. I hadn't wanted to move to Jacksonville but now I have a great apartment ( even better after the renovation), everything I need is very close (shopping, doctors, public transportation and entertainment). There are plenty of events held right here, we even have a doctor who comes. So, if you're a low income senior looking for a home, this is an excellent choice.
I moved into an alcove apartment. I have been told it is a clean place and I find this to be true. There is a variety of people...there are events all the time that you can get involved in or not, that is up to you. all the sinks, cabinets and floor are like new. The bathroom have hand bars to help if needed It is private yet you feel protected. This is a good place for an older person. It is very reasonable for rent. I can not say enough good things about this place.
Great job Kelly. I love my apartment.
