Pony Express Senior Apartments will be a 60-unit affordable housing complex available to low- and very-low-income seniors and veterans, including 15 units set aside for seniors experiencing homelessness. The 1.82 acre site will include fifty-nine (59) one-bedroom units with 590 sq. ft. and one (1) two-bedroom Manager’s unit with 1,050 sq. ft.
The GreenPoint certified buildings will include a photovoltaic system, fully accessible community room with full kitchen, computer room, exercise room, raised community garden beds, and a large dog run.
To further serve seniors’ ability to “age in place,” an on-site Wellness Center will be added where healthcare professionals and community members can provide medical, dental or community services necessary for residents.
The groundbreaking event for Pony Express Senior Apartments was attended by state and city dignitaries, where State Treasurer Fiona Ma spoke at the ceremony stressing the importance of senior housing and relaying that she lives with her 85-year-old father. “I understand that as we age, we transition and steps aren’t that easy sometimes,” she said. “Building housing that accommodates older Americans as they age in place is important.”
Vice Mayor Nolan Sullivan said he was very grateful for all the work that allowed the project to reach the groundbreaking stage and called it a very important project for the city. “Seniors are a huge part of our community,” he said. “They’re the backbone and fabric of the town of Vacaville.”
