In addition to the new affordable senior housing project under way, Gaard Development will soon begin to build a housing project on land they bought from us for working families and individuals who still struggle to find affordable housing. It will also provide a YWCA-sponsored day care for children, so our campus will begin to have the vibe of a vibrant, multi-generational urban community.
While all that is good, we are losing some green space. At the same time that Northaven is growing, the neighborhood around us is growing and becoming more densely populated. All these changes are good, but they also make relaxing green space more important.
We are building a new garden. Grass and walkways and roses and places for our seniors to plant tiny gardens. It will be a place to gather. Imagine our residents sitting on a bench and meditating surrounded by greenery and flowers… or talking with friends and family. Imagine a place of quiet and peace in the midst of the growing city.
YOU CAN HELP IT HAPPEN!
Buy a tile. The bricks will be attached to the wall of Northaven, and landscaping will draw attention to the wall. Your tile can honor the memory of a loved one. It can memorialize a birth or a wedding. It can bear your own name.
To order a brick, please contact Bill Dorn, Director of Development:
