The Good Life
Here’s another way that Zoomers are changing aging. Plans are in the works for the first seniors home for gays and lesbians in Canada. Plum Living Properties is planning the development for Vancouver.
The American developer says gay and lesbian baby boomers are looking for this type of community, and they have already built similar projects in San Francisco and Palm Springs.
So far, it’s just a proposal, but more than 30 people have put down a $1,000 deposit since it was first advertised two weeks ago.
The plan is for a condo development featuring living units, a communal dining room, a fitness centre, a lounge and cabaret. It will cater to gays and lesbians seniors but anyone can purchase a unit. The developer says construction could begin in 2010.
