CHARLOTTE, NC – The Housing Partnership is taking another step towards eliminating the growing need for affordable, high-quality housing for seniors in Mecklenburg County with a newly proposed senior living development in the Westinghouse area.
The Housing Partnership intends to develop an 86-unit senior living community. The proposed design includes two residential buildings on a 4.59 acre parcel replete with a picnic area, walking trail, and sitting areas. The main access to the site will be located off Pioneer Avenue near Westinghouse Boulevard with a secondary access through Shaffer Valley Way providing connectivity to surrounding communities.
“We envision a Mecklenburg County where everyone will live in a decent, affordable home,” said Pat Garrett, president of The Housing Partnership. “And, homes for the most vulnerable members of our community are an essential piece of the puzzle, whether it’s in the Seversville neighborhood or off Westinghouse Boulevard.”
More than 300 adjacent property owners were invited to attend a community informational drop-in scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at Steele Creek Church of Charlotte, 1929 W. Arrowood Road, Charlotte, NC 28217, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. to hear about the design. Additionally, The Housing Partnership will open its office, located at 4601 Charlotte Park Drive, for the community to drop-in on Wednesday, May 18th and Thursday, May 19th between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to hear more about the planned development.
