REDICO/American House Break Ground on 84-Unit Senior Living Center
- Dec 13, 2013
Real Estate Development and Investment Co. (REDICO) of Southfield, MI, and its affiliate American House Senior Living Communities are creating a senior living community in Grosse Pointe Farms, a suburban town located roughly 13 miles from Detroit.
Crain’s Detroit Business reports that the new senior living center will occupy the second and third floors at Henry Ford Medical Center-Cottage, a brick-clad building located near the Hill “business district” which includes offices, stores, restaurants and the main branch of the Grosse Pointe Farms public library.
Henry Ford Medical Center, the town’s largest employer, shut down the inpatient operations at the Cottage medical building in 2010 and since then has been on the first floor as an outpatient center. Henry Ford reportedly sold the two floors totaling 92,000-square-foot space to the American House/REDICO joint venture for an undisclosed amount.
When completed in fall 2014, the “American House Grosse Pointe” located at 159 Kercheval Avenue will offer 84 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment units for seniors. There will be 40 apartments designed for senior who can live independently, 30 licensed assisted living units and 14 memory care units for residents suffering from Alzheimer’s or similar memory-related conditions.
The new Grosse Pointe Farms senior living community will be the first project of this kind built within a medical campus and the 34th community that American House operates in Michigan.
