Minneapolis Housing and city leaders broke ground today on Friday, October 1 on a state-of-the-art senior center and memory care housing units in Harrison Neighborhood. These two projects are being funded with more than $20 million of federal stimulus money. The Minnesota Public Housing Authority won the funding through a national competition for the dollars.
The 48-unit Thomas T. Feeney Manor-Memory Care Development is to be built to provide housing and support services for elderly, low-income residents who experience memory loss. The building will feature energy-efficient construction and green technology including solar and geothermal.
NorthWay’s Executive Director, Wesley Walker, is pleased to see a development on this scale, with these innovations, built in North Minneapolis.
The Minnesota Public Housing Authority’s Heritage Park Senior Services Center will be built next to the Thomas Feeney Manor at 350 Van White Memorial Boulevard at Heritage Park and across from the 102 “seniors only” unit Heritage Commons building. This senior center will provide a number of services to elderly Northside residents including medical, adult daycare, social and recreational services.
