Work is underway to transform a vacant downtown office building at 423 S. Main Street, next to Laconia Housing’s Sunrise Towers. Construction of the Sunrise House is moving steadily and scheduled to be ready for occupancy by August 2019.
The Sunrise House project is a 16-unit new apartment building that will provide affordable, supportive housing for persons with disabilities who are 62 years of age or older. Included in the rent for are heat, hot water, electricity, and air conditioning. Laconia Housing will provide lunch and dinner daily. The units will have a small kitchen and double-sized, roll-in showers to accommodate wheelchairs; an elevator will make all floors accessible.
Sunrise House is in walking distance to restaurants and shops in downtown Laconia. Staff will also coordinate social activities for residents. We work closely with the ServiceLink Aging and Disability Resource Center as well as DHHS.
