Some great news for our neighborhood from the Everett Herald: Eyesore no more: Former nursing home getting new life as apartments
In the shell of a former nursing home, demolition workers rip out corroded pipe, tear down drywall and sweep up broken glass.
It’s prelude to a long-vacant building at 3515 Hoyt Ave. being turned into an 85-unit apartment building for seniors, and the removal of a long-standing eyesore in the Port Gardner neighborhood.
When the building reopens next spring, it will contain 85 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments for residents age 55 and up. Two common areas will be added to the first and fourth floors, and the main entrance of the building will have a ramp compatible with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
The grounds will be landscaped and 85 parking stalls, many of them covered, will be built on the property.
Construction is slated to be completed by February.
