2Life Communities to start on Opus project ahead of schedule

Brighton, Massachusetts-based 2Life Communities will break ground next month on its middle market community Opus Newton, almost a year ahead of schedule.

The community, first announced in 2021 in Newton, Massachusetts, is a middle market senior living community for adults 62 and up featuring 174 units with eight floor plans. A 2Life representative told Senior Housing News earlier this week the community has fewer than 20 apartments remaining to be sold and is expected to be 90% presold by the end of February.

Construction is expected to last 24-months. Opus residents will take an active role in their community by volunteering approximately 10 hours a month, from teaching a course, offering professional advice or lending time for a number of community projects. Health care options are focused on allowing residents to age in place and have care come to them.


Its proximity to Newton will allow residents to tap into the neighborhood and become part of the wider community rather than remaining isolated.

The community will be connected by a two-story connector to the Coleman House, encompassing a cafe, art studio, classroom and meeting space. Outdoor amenities include patios, gardens and walking trails.
