The NoHo Arts District is getting a little artier and old-fartier (sorry!) with a new $32 million Senior Arts Colony. The 126-unit residential development opened this month, and caters to artists aged 62 and up. It's also the first senior housing project to house an on-site professional theater, run by the Road Theatre Company. The Colony will offer all residents access to visual arts, digital arts, and film editing studios, free arts classes taught by college-level instructors, as well as a fitness center and eco-meditation garden. Apartments come in one- and two-bedroom options, each with a private balcony or patio. The CEO of developer Meta Housing Corporation says they chose North Hollywood for the project because "residents can walk or drive to an art supply store, acting classes, an independent movie theater, art galleries, dance classes and performances, as well as restaurants and shopping." Programming will be provided by EngAGE, an organization that "changes aging and the way people think about aging by transforming senior apartment communities into vibrant centers of learning, wellness, and creativity."
