The Leonard Florence Center for Living is an urban, condominium-style Green House project, consisting of 10 condominiums housing 100 residents (10 residents per condominium). In addition to providing skilled nursing care to elders in many of the homes, there are two short-term rehabilitation houses and two homes that support individuals living with medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). The Leonard Florence Center for Living, which opened in February 2010, is the first urban and condominium-style Green House project in the country.
