Harry and Jeannette Weinberg House Breaks Ground in Brighton, MA

On Friday July 21, 2017 Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Congressman Michael Capunao, Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly (JCHE(, local elected officials and residents of the JCHE Brighton Campus celebrated the groundbreaking of the very anticipated Harry and Jeannette Weinberg House, scheduled to open the fall of 2018. 

Kicking off a $23M project that will include 61 affordable rental apartments, including studios and one-bedrooms, that will feature apartment layout with universal design features for comfortable living, full-equipped kitchens, central air conditioning and individually controlled heating, cable and internet access as well as 24-hour emergency call system. Select apartments are available for adults aging with life-long developmental disabilities with support services provided by JCHE. 

But this event, and this project is more than just constructing another building, it is about the bigger picture, our people. As Mayor Walsh puts it into perspective “How beneficial a project is, especially for the elderly. Senior people are the people that built our city.” The work that Boston and JCHE have done to help the elderly community, giving them more than just shelter, but quality of life and a chance for success is remarkable. 

Boston has invested about $100M in affordable living, paying it back to the people that built this city. The Harry and Jeannette Weinberg House stands for more than just a building, it’s standing for the future. Dellbrook | JKS couldn’t be more honored to stand for that future and partner with JCHE.
