Burbank Senior Artists Colony

Dateline: 2:05 pm April 30, 2008 Filed under:

Never in my career would I have dreamed up a senior housing project for artists, but indeed one exists in lovely Burbank, California. It is pretty cool, too. The Burbank Senior Artists Colony is a fairly typical, albeit attractive four story senior housing development on the outside. On the inside are community rooms, art studios, a lawn for yoga and meditation, and a stage for playacting or video productions.

The artists colony is a partnership between Meta Housing, the developer, and Engaged Aging, a services provider that strongly believes that BINGO is not the answer for elderly activity. If you ask me, BINGO is what residents at the colony do in their down time when they are not sculpting, acting, painting or learning an instrument. Forever young. For more on the colony and other exciting developments, visit the ULI Case Studies website.
