I read the articles regarding closure of St. Mark’s Home for Women, senior housing facility in Augusta, and think it seems like a great opportunity for a new owner.

With senior housing at critical low point in Maine, it makes sense to me to keep a 17-person residence operational.

This above-average, some say, magnificent building is already set up for housing. Located near library, churches, public safety units, it offers many amenities seniors desire.

Millions of dollars are being spent renovating old schools and factories for senior housing. Having a gem like St. Mark’s already operational and partially occupied might make someone a good business investment and keep the wonderful women who live there in their home.
