Tenants must be at least age 62, and the community will be specifically welcoming to seniors who identify as LGBTQ, according to the developers. The original school was built in 1899 on 74,000 square feet of land and closed in June 2015. Boston-based architecture firm DiMella Shaffer designed the project.
