The active adult retirement community next door to my Weichert office is for residents 55+ who live independently. Eight thousand or so home owner and renters live in a variety of housing styles from high-rises and mid-rises, to town houses and gardens, and attached patio homes. They are either condos or coops. The newest mid-rise condos are visible from Georgia Ave and are being sold now. Residents enjoy a full range of amenities: clubs and meeting rooms, indoor and outdoor swimming, an athletic center, tennis, walking trails, restaurants, medical center, interfaith chapel, bank, and post office as well as shopping next door at the plaza, bus direct to Metro and shuttle. There is a niche to keep everyone busy and socializing.
