SUDBURY, Mass. — B’nai B’rith Housing has completed Phase II of construction at The Coolidge of Sudbury, an affordable housing community for seniors in Sudbury, located midway between Boston and Worcester.
The project added 56 new units to the project, bringing the total number of units to 120.
The rental apartments have one bedroom and are between 675 and 700 square feet. The new building includes common space and amenities, including a meeting room, library, fitness center and offices for a property manager and a resident service coordinator.
Prior to Phase I of construction seniors housing, particularly affordable senior housing, was difficult to find in and around Sudbury, according to B’nai B’rith Housing. Over 25 percent of Sudbury households have at least one member who is over 60 years old. Notably, over one quarter of these households are individuals living alone.
Of Lincoln‐Sudbury seniors, 30 percent of households over 65 years old earn less than $50,000 per year, according to U.S. Census data.
