Located on the first floor as well as second floor, the Active Aging Center will include classrooms, dance/exercise studio, and meeting rooms. On the third, fourth, and fifth floors, studios and 1-bedroom apartments will be available to seniors earning less than 60% of area median income at affordable rents ranging from $691 to $1,481 per month.

Residents will be able to participate in the breadth of Whistlestop’s activities and services with the convenience of living just upstairs. At Whistlestop’s Active Aging Center, seniors will find enrichment and fitness courses, special events, game groups, specialty groups, and outreach services that bring people together, encourage social connections, and create new learning experiences.
