I attended the groundbreaking for Hope Village’s new addition on Wednesday. There will be 12 new duplex units. It is located on South Fir across the street from the current Hope Village campus.
We began the ceremony inside in the Marquis multipurpose room and I met the Kaufman couple, who were the first residents to move in when Hope Village opened in the late 1990s.
The following is copied from a Canby Herald press release:
“Canby’s Hope Village senior living community will soon begin construction of new homes to expand its campus in Canby. The new Cottage Homes will include two- and three-bedroom duplex homes in a new cul-de-sac located off Fir Street.
The new homes will feature wrap-around light, spacious kitchens, utility rooms with washer and dryer, vaulted ceilings, air conditioning, covered patios and attached garages with direct home access. Optional features will include gas fireplaces and gas cooking.
Cottages range in size from 1,496-square-feet to 1,688-square-feet.
“The demand for housing at Hope Village has reached a point that we decided to add additional homes to meet the growing need,” said Craig Gingerich, Hope Village executive director. “Preliminary interest in the Cottage Homes from those on our waiting list who have made initial deposits have led us to begin this project.”
Residents will have the opportunity to customize their home with options and be able to choose colors for carpet, flooring and counters.
Construction is scheduled to begin in September with cottages ready by early 2016.
LRS Architects of Portland did the design for the project and Yorke & Curtis will be doing the construction.
