Polly Campbell of The Cincinnati Enquirer:
An intergenerational development is coming to Maineville that’s a first of its kind in Ohio.
Hopkins Commons will be a neighborhood designed to help senior citizens age in place and stay connected to the larger community. It includes both market-rate and subsidized housing and amenities for people older than 55.
It will be anchored, and partly funded, by Azul, an American comfort-food restaurant open to the public. Chef Nat Blanford will co-own it with Warren County Community Services, which is building Hopkin Commons. They hope to open by April 1, 2018.
Blanford says that the restaurant, open to the public, will be all about comfort.
