New housing for seniors is coming to Brookline. A virtual forum sponsored by BrooklineCAN on September 10 at 6 pm will look at the new housing developments for seniors that are in the works in Brookline. Jennifer Molinsky of the Harvard University Joint Center on Housing will provide the context by speaking on “Housing America’s Older Adults.”
The panel will include:
– Mike Jacobs, chair of the Brookline Housing Authority speaking about plans for replacement and expansion of the Col. Floyd development.
– Rhonda Glyman of Center Communities will speak about Hebrew Senior Life’s plans for a new residential building on Centre Street.
– Cheryl Fever and Michael Schonbrun will speak about the Welltower/Balfour senior living community planned for the Newbury College site on Fisher Hill.
– Cindy Katzeff and Amy Schectman of 2Life will speak about both the Brown Family House on Harvard Street that is currently under construction and plans for an affordable senior housing development on the site of the Kent-Station Street parking lot.
