Staenbergs to donate $1 million to Crown Center housing project


Crown Center for Senior Living has received a $1million donation from philanthropists Michael and Carol Staenberg to benefit Crown’s capital campaign to construct affordable housing for older adults, and a state-of-the-art community center to be named “Staenberg Commons”.

Crown is planning to build new, high-quality, apartments for older adults on its site in University City, replacing the original 1960s era high rise. Construction on the Staenberg Commons is slated to begin in early 2022.

“The Staenberg’s donation is essential to our ability to move forward with this important project,” said Nikki Goldstein, Crown Center Executive Director, in a statement.

“The Staenberg Commons will be a beautiful gathering place, welcoming both Crown residents and retirees from the area to stay active and engaged. We’re honored to be connected with the Staenberg name and fortunate to benefit from their involvement, experience and immense generosity,” added Sally Altman, president of Crown Center’s Board of Directors.
