Cutler Bay residents are invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony on Mar. 21 for a new Miami-Dade County developed senior center, the first of its kind in the area.

“Given the need for more affordable housing for our beloved senior residents, [Miami- Dade Commission] Vice Chair Lynda Bell successfully secured the construction and development of a 101-unit, four story LEED Certified building that will serve as affordable elderly rental housing,” said Maurice R. Hernandez, communications assistant for Bell.

Hernandez said that there has been a shortage of housing available for seniors on low or fixed incomes and that Bell asked Miami- Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez for the project in Commission District 8 and has worked hard to bring it about.

The project will be located at 11150 SW 211 St., very close to the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, South Dade Government Center and Southland Mall. There will be easy access to all forms of transit.

The ground floor will have a dining room, fitness center, laundry service and parking. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Thursday, Mar. 21, 10 a.m., behind the Continucare Medical Center at 11000 SW 211 St. There is parking space available on the west lot of the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.
