Our Winter Grove senior housing complex, located in Southington Ct., and our Gaffney Place revitalization project, located in Waterbury Ct., have both officially opened! We would like to thank all of our partners and supporters for attending the ribbon cutting ceremonies and we are excited to begin welcoming residents in both locations. Below you can read more information about our exciting new developments.
We recently celebrated the opening of our senior housing site, Winter Grove, located in Southington CT. Winter Grove is a HUD Section 202 financing project with additional funding from the State of Connecticut Department of Housing. This new construction project is comprised of 40 units for senior residents. A ribbon cutting was celebrated on April 1, 2015 and we are happy to announce that leases have begun as of May 1, 2015. Pictured below is the front entrance of the complex as well as NWNH President Ed Seibert, Suzanne Piacentini (HUD), Gary Brumback (Town of Southington), NWNH Executive Director Seila Mosquera, Congressman John Larson, and Evonne Klein (CT-DOH).
We also recently held our ribbon cutting ceremony for our Gaffney Place revitalization project in Waterbury CT. The historic rehabilitation of this neighborhood revitalization homeownership project was comprised of five two-family homes (10 units) and was funded by the Connecticut Department of Housing, Harold Webster Smith Foundation, Greater New Haven Community Loan Fund, Wells Fargo, City of Waterbury, American Savings Foundation, CT Trust for Historic Preservation and the CT Historic Homes Tax Credit Program. Pictured below is a shot of the new and remodeled home, as well as the remodeled sidewalk. Also, pictured from left to right, State Rep.
