After seven years of planning, design, and construction, Essex Place, a senior and affordable housing development in Centerbrook, celebrated its grand opening in July 2017. Essex Place provides 18 one-bedroom apartments and four two-bedroom apartments. Three of the units are fully handicap-accessible and the other units may be adapted for handicapped tenants. All the doors are sized to accommodate wheelchairs and handrails line the walls in the hallways.

More Information

The complex has a community room on the first floor, as well as a library and kitchen on the second floor. Each apartment also has an individual kitchen. Other groups within Essex are welcome to reserve the community room for use.

The project is a collaboration between Essex Elderly and Affordable Housing (EEAH) and the Women’s Institute for Housing and Development (WIHED). Funding for the project came from about 10 different sources, including the Connecticut Department of Housing and the Connecticut Housing Authority.
