AVENS Pavilion Project – COMING SOON 2023  

AVENS team is working hard to provide 102 safe and affordable housing units for seniors. It will include 92 (1 bedroom) and 10 (2 bedroom) units and introduce a new way of independent living for seniors that will allow them to age with dignity for longer in their homes.

At this time, we are in the permitting phases and waiting for approval to begin construction and hope to commence intakes in the fall of 2023.
