2010-2011, Beaver Island Senior Housing–
On the sunny morning of September 30, a good-sized crowd attended the ground-breaking ceremony for the long-awaited senior housing project, to thank the group who spent ten difficult years bringing this much-needed facility to fruition.
"Forest View" includes six individual apartments, 4 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom, each with its own kitchen and bath. In addition, Forrest View will include a laundry room, community room, and a community kitchen.
The building will be heated through a geothermal system: 20 closed-circuit, 200'-deep wells.
As construction is underway on this new building, applications are being taken now to rent an apartment.
Below is a slideshow with photographs taken during some of the early construction stages of Forest View. More will be added soon as construction continues.
