Emery Apartments represents the fourth project developed between Anew Development and Westbrook Development Corporation in as many years. Emery Apartments is planned as a second Phase to the 61 Unit Robert L Harnois Apartments completed in January of 2021.
Emery Apartments started construction on October of 2020 and was complete by the fall of 2021. Emery Apartments features 30 energy-efficient, affordable senior apartments at a time of unprecedented need in the community.
Campus resident amenities include outdoor gathering spaces, universal accessibility, a fitness center, beautifully furnished multi-purpose rooms, laundry and community rooms, and a meandering nature path with benches set at scenic viewpoints.
The Harnois & Emery campus is set high on Deer Hill in a quiet, idyllic wooded setting providing residents with a calming connection to nature. At the same time, it is a short walk to Westbrook’s Main Street shopping district including the Kohl’s and Rock Row plazas as well as a Metro bus stop providing easy access across greater Portland.
Harnois & Emery Apartments were funded by a complex stack of capital sources and financial instruments made possible by MaineHousing, Boston Financial, the City of Westbrook, Westbrook Housing, and Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution.
Westbrook Housing and Anew Development are grateful to the Harnois & Emery design and construction teams. Benchmark Construction provided excellent planning and oversight as the project’s Construction Manager. Archetype Architects, Gorrill-Palmer provided the innovative design and engineering services that physically transformed the property and the attorneys at Drummond Woodsum guided the project with expert legal counsel.
Thanks to the combined efforts of the entire development team, these 91 units of quality senior housing have been developed to serve Westbrook area seniors for generations to come in an environment that supports them not just with financial security but with independence, comfort, safety, social connectivity, and health and well-being.
