Minden Motel to transform into senior apartments

by Amber McDown

Big changes are ahead for the Minden Motel as partners Anthony Waller of Minden and Reese Davis plan to remodel the building into senior apartments.

Currently under contract by DW Investments, the motel’s 40 rooms will be consolidated into 20 one-bedroom apartments, each about 400 square feet. Plans include repaving the parking lot, building a fence around the property, and improving the grounds to create a calm and relaxing environment. Landscaping and a gardening area for residents are also planned.

“I want the environment to be relaxing,” Davis said. “I want you to walk in and feel like this is a whole different world. I want to build a place that I would have my mom in. I want it to be special. I want it to be relaxed. I want the tenants to feel like they’re in their own community and be able to enjoy themselves.”

The partners also plan to refurbish the restaurant to provide three meals a day to residents, have a nurse on staff, and ensure the future gate is manned for security.

While the Minden Motel is not currently an apartment, a veteran living there long-term has been assured by Davis that he will have a place to stay during and after the renovations. “I told him, ‘Brother, you don’t have anything to worry about. I’ll make sure the paperwork is taken care of. If you move out temporarily, you’ll just move right back in.’ I’ll assist him with a place until renovations are done,” Davis said.

The project aims to revitalize the neighborhood and provide seniors with a safe and comfortable living space. “I want to make people feel better about where they live,” Davis added. Davis also wanted to thank Century 21 realtor Brianna Lewis for all her help making this possible. “We were able to accomplish this deal thanks to our realtor, Brianna Lewis,” said Davis.

The sale of the building is expected to be completed by the end of the month, with the remodel projected to be finished about two months later. Additionally, the partners are looking into purchasing property on Middle Landing to build new low-income housing.
