Document Description
The proposed project approvals would provide for construction of a five-story, 298,000-square-foot State-licensed senior living community on the approximately 3.10-acre parcel (project site). The proposed community would include 213 total living units, 207 on-site parking spaces, and associated hardscape and landscape improvements. Of the total 213 senior living units, 28 would be Memory Care units, 62 would be Assisted Living units, and 123 would be Independent Living units. The units would range in size from studios (approximately 540 square feet) to three-bedroom units (approximately 2,580 square feet). Amenities for residents are anticipated to include multiple restaurant-style dining venues, a fitness and wellness center, salon and studio spaces, theater, art room, lounge, and multi-purpose rooms. Outdoor spaces are anticipated to include a memory care garden, swimming pool with outdoor exercise area, outdoor seating area with fire pit, outdoor dining areas, meditation spaces, and roof decks. The development of the new community would require demolition and removal of the existing two commercial buildings, surface parking (including existing asphalt concrete pavement, curb, and gutter), fence and block wall, landscaping, yard lights, signage, and all above-ground water and gas lines on the project site. All existing utility sewer, water, and gas lines below grade would be disconnected and capped.
