HANAC Corona Senior Residence at 54-17 101st St. near Chrystie Avenue in Corona will consist of 68 apartments for the borough’s seniors, as well as social programs and a ground-floor pre-K. This intergenerational model creates a community impact center that launches social engagement opportunities improving the lives of its residents and the greater community. To facilitate this goal, the back of the building shall include a shared rear yard with a vegetable garden, seating and tables for residents, and a children’s natural play area. An additional seniors-only open space shall be located on the fifth floor terrace that is accessible through a community room. It will also comply with NYSERDA, Enterprise Green Communities, and Passive House Design standards. The project is slated to be complete by 2018.
