Sun House Senior Apartments – Ukiah
PEP Housing broke ground March 10, 2016 for Sun House Senior Apartments located within incorporated Ukiah, Mendocino County. The project will provide much-needed 36 1-bedroom and 5 2-bedroom units to low income seniors; another 2-bedroom unit is reserved for a resident manager. The design is being coordinated with the local museum board to complement the adjacent city-owned Grace Hudson Museum, a federally recognized historical site. On-site features include a community center, raised garden beds, landscaped areas with walking paths and a dog run. A resident service coordinator will arrange on-site services such as health and financial literacy classes. The site itself is an infill location in proximity to many downtown amenities including public spaces, a library with public transit stop, a major bank and grocery store, pharmacy, retail shopping and restaurants, and the fire and police departments. The regional hospital property with several adjacent medical and dental offices is located exactly 1/4 mile from the NE corner of this site and can easily be accessed by the newly-completed pedestrian path along the railroad right-of-way just east.
