A 140-apartment assisted and independent living facility broke ground last month in Severna Park and the developer of the 140,000-square-foot building plans to open it October of next year.
Brightview Senior Living
at 473 Jumpers Hold Rd. is a $16 million project developed by the Shelter Group
, which owns and operates Brightview housing. The company operates nine additional facilities in Maryland
The apartments will be evenly divided between assisted living and independent living housing, and will include 26 units devoted to memory care, says Shelter Senior Development Director Andrew Teeters.
Teeters says there's an incredible need for senior communities in Severna Park as there are no new senior living communities in the area. With an aging population, the company plans to target people over 75 who have raised families in the community and want to live locally.
Some of the features of the facility include a fitness center, a cafe and pub with regular happy hours, a computer center and library with activity rooms. Additional staff such as nurses will be on site to support residents.
Brightview provides market-rate senior housing, and rates in their facilities average approximately $2,500 per month.
