Fern rlrk, FL3i 30 $11wlzir*p'ItWi" At Kinneret Apartments 'n Sliding Constl00ction to Begin On Community Room Construction begins later this month on a new $400M community room at the Kinneret senior residence complex near downtown Orlando, according to Murray Schwartz, president of the Kinneret Corp. The room, said Schwartz, will be able to seat more than the entire Kinneret population at one time. It will be located on Kinneret grounds between the present two 14-story apartment buildings on South Delaney St. Originally expected to be constructed at the same time as Kinneret II, the community room was delayed when inflationary costs spiralled far beyond original estimates for the building, said Schwartz. Kinneret II opened to new residents nine months ago. Kinneret I is almost I I years old. The new addition will take about seven months to build. "It has an exciting potential in terms of what it means to Kinneret and the community as far as instituting programs which would enhance the quality of life for senior citizens," said Schwartz. The 4,000 sq. ft. room will include a kitchen and store room. It will be used for both social and dining facilities, he said. Seating capacity will be for approximately400 people. Approval of engineering and construction plans, together with financing arrangements, came through the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.
