Over the last four or five years, downtown Augusta has really made a comeback.  In the last few years, the area has added a bunch of new restaurants including Cushnoc Brewing Company, State Lunch, and The Raging Bull.  We've also seen new retail and service businesses open.  Water Street Barber Company and Best Life Nutrition, to name a few.  Fortunately, this comeback has continued despite the pandemic.

As a result of this revival, the apartments on Water Street have become really desirable places to live.  Many of these apartments have recently been renovated.  In some cases, these apartments are brand new.  The new apartments were often created out of unused spaces or spaces that had been used as offices.

Because they are convenient, and GORGEOUS, many of these apartments are not cheap.  Most, if not all, have outpaced the ballistic rise in apartment rental rates throughout Kennebec County.  Despite the cost, in my opinion, these places are worth every penny.

One of the Vickery building apartments will be available for rent in mid-October.  It is an ADA compliant first-floor unit that is literally steps from all that Water Street has to offer.  The 1,135 square foot apartment has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room, and a kitchen.  Based on the pictures, every room has hardwood floors and the unit features spectacular views of the Kennebec River.  Heating & cooling is done through super efficient heat pumps.  The apartment has parking spaces, elevator access, and trash removal.

A Look Inside The Vickery Apartments

Here is your chance to see one of the new apartments in Augusta's Vickery building. As of September 2021, the price per month for this 2 BR / 1 BA unit was $2,150. Get more details HERE

The rent is $2,150 per month.  However, in order to move in, they want first month, last month, and security department.  So, you'd need $6,450.  If you want to have a cat or dog in the apartment, there would be additional charges.
