Chestnut Square Senior Housing is the first phase of a mixed-income, intergenerational community in the heart of the City’s North Side district. Chestnut Square Senior Housing provides 72 affordable rental apartments for seniors. MidPen will also develop 42 affordable rental apartments for families. Chestnut Square Senior Housing began construction in December 2017 and welcomed residents in September 2019. Together with the family housing component, Chestnut Square Senior Housing will form an intergenerational community with shared open spaces close to supermarkets, ACE transit, and retail and restaurants in the downtown area. Five of the 72 apartments are set aside for formerly homeless households, and supportive services for those residents are delivered by a third party service provider in collaboration with MidPen Services.
