Tour: Taube-Koret Campus for Jewish Life

A new 12-acre community combining a variety of housing types, a cultural center, recreational facilities, and educational opportunities is opening this fall in Palo Alto. The Taube Koret Center for Jewish Life includes affordable and market-rate housing for families as well as independent, assisted and nursing level care for seniors. A community center and gym, pre-school and after school activities are available for both residents and the larger neighborhood. Don't miss out on this tour of a new cultural hub led by Paula Shaviv, senior Project Manager for Steinberg Architects.

Designed to bring generations together and foster a strong sense of community, a pedestrian street is the main artery that provides circulation between retail outlets; adult, senior, and teen activities; and learning centers. A series of age-appropriate courtyards are designed to host a variety of social activities. The result is a transformation—from brownfield (the former SUN Microsystems site) into a vibrant community that does not remove seniors or youth from mainstream society, but places them in an opportunity-rich environment that provides stimulation as well as safety and insulation.
