MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - A two story brick house by Lake Nokomis is far from an ordinary home.
The home was recently remodeled and named “Vibrante.” It’s a living concept that will create an intentional community for women who are 55 and older. Living options for active, independent women aren’t plentiful, but Vibrante’s founder Roxanne Cornell has started to change that.
“It’s for women that are vibrant and engaged in life and maybe still working part time, maybe not, maybe retired but [they] are still involved in their community,” Cornell said.
If it sounds like Blanche and the other Golden Girls, that’s not a mistake. They were in mind when the concept was created, Cornell told Fox 9.
“They [The Golden Girls] were up at midnight eating cheesecake and drinking coffee, I mean they had fun,” Cornell said. “They cared for each other, they loved each other, they ended up being really great friends.”
The house is a blank slate for now, but when women move in Cornell anticipates that they’ll bring their big, full lives with them.
Vibrante will also provide a concierge service.
“If you’ve had a long week and you’re tired and don’t want to cook dinner tonight, I can arrange to have food brought in, or bring a chef into the house for a party or an event,” Cornell said.
But maybe, the women will be eating cheesecake at midnight instead.
