Named in honor of The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, whose generous gift helped make this project possible, the 57,400 sq. ft. building is connected to our existing 700-apartment Brighton campus, allowing residents full access to our many services, programs, and amenities.
It also brings us one step closer to transforming all of our campuses into “village centers”—hubs of exciting activity that welcome in our neighbors with ground floor retail space, an outdoor patio and connecting pathways to our newly renovated courtyards, and multiple community gathering spaces. We can’t wait to see our beautiful sitting areas filled with residents and visitors of all ages making connections across the generations!
We also look forward to welcoming a diverse group of older adults to our state-of-the-art, adaptable apartments at Weinberg House. The building is the first in the City of Boston’s Initiative to End Chronic Homelessness to have units designated for chronically homeless seniors, and residents of the seven apartments set aside for the Initiative will receive enhanced services through HEARTH, Inc. Weinberg House also features five apartments for adults aging with lifelong intellectual and developmental disabilities, run in partnership with Advocates and the MA Department of Developmental Services.
Stay tuned for a ribbon-cutting celebration being planned for warmer weather when we can all enjoy a party in our courtyard together.
