The hybrid homes provide a new seniors’ housing option, blending the benefits of both cottage and apartment living to provide an intentional community that can be tailored to special interests, educational development and economic need. Multiple exposures, sheltered ground level parking, outdoor living and an absence of corridors are among the cottage-like benefits. Apartment-like features include indoor access to common and service areas and opportunities for social connections in a multi-story building which requires less site area. Each building includes up to 13 individual residences, a hearth room on each floor, ground floor community room and service areas.
