Partridge/Kennedy Apartments

The thirty model retirement apartments, financed by a loan from HUD, are specifically designed to meet the needs of persons over 62 living on restricted incomes. Completed in September of 1961, they received an Award of Merit in Design Excellence in 1964.

Which Is Best for Me?

Partridge Kennedy Apartments have group activities available, yet solo living is the key, where each resident has all he/she needs in the apartment. There is a central courtyard that's shared. Rent is based on a fixed low fee.

Crane Place is a much larger complex that is suitable for many congregate activities. There are regular programs for residents, a social services coordinator on-site, and large areas for sharing, including a library, a dining hall, a lobby and gardens. Rent is based on a formula related to your gross income; there are maximum income level requirements to qualify.

All residents of both complexes are members of Peninsula Volunteers Little House, making a very full activity schedule available at your leisure.
