Some of the residences are in the wing of The Old School that used to be classrooms. Each of these 16 spacious, two bedroom apartments have large windows with lots of natural light and some of them have a historical piece of an old classroom such as a chalkboard or built in bookshelf. The old school hallway is now an interior “street” with benches, plants, skylights and artwork. The classroom apartments are reserved for people aged 55 and above and include a mix of affordable and market rate residences. 

Sixteen additional residences are being constructed next to the classroom apartments and will be available for all ages starting in 2020. There will be 8 three bedroom apartments and 8 two bedrooms with a mix of affordable and market rate. 

Some of the apartments are built to ADA standards and some are easily convertible to ADA standards. The housing is EarthCraft certified and highly energy efficient. Amenities include a laundry facility on-site, a walking trail, and community garden space for the residents. Residents have the opportunity to access the local food restaurant, brew pub, and community/incubator kitchen that will also be located in The Old School. 

When both phases of the apartments are complete, a new mixed income, multi-generational community will exist in tandem with a dynamic commercial space creating a unique, one of a kind development supporting local entrepreneurs, food access, and a range of housing needs.
