The Wall Street Journal recently published a story about an exciting new project in New York City. Jewish Home Lifecare plans to break ground in 2013 on a project to build 24 Green House homes on the Upper West Side of the big apple!
Jewish Home now says it will be ready to break ground on the $250 million project in February 2013, with move-in slated for spring 2017. It has raised some money through private philanthropy, but officials are seeking a mortgage from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which they hope will provide the bulk of the financing…it will be one of the most ambitious new senior housing projects in the New York City area, which has suffered from a lack of new development to accommodate an aging population.
“What used to work is no longer an option” for aging baby boomers, says Colin Milner, chief executive of the International Council on Active Aging. “We’re moving from being a care society to being one where we take self-responsibility.”
The Green House Project is honored to partner with Jewish Home Lifecare in the pursuit of changing aging, and increasing the quality of life for elder New Yorkers!
