Four Senior Housing Projects in the Works
Developers have identified a number of sites in and around Marion that meet the criteria for senior housing - from skilled nursing to low income senior apartments.
Studies show that in many cases, developers focus on thriving suburban communities because established working couples want to have their parents close by, where they can receive the level of care they need and still be active within their families.
Marion’s proximity to public transportation, medical services, employment opportunities and basic shopping needs helps solidify the investment decision.
Four new senior housing projects are in varying stages of development in Marion. Blairs Ferry Senior (pictured below) and the Arbor at Lindale Trail are located along Blairs Ferry Road and close to completion. These facilities will provide 127 income-restricted housing units for residents ages 55 and over.
The two additional projects are expected to offer independent, assisted and skilled care services. Terrace Glen is being constructed along Alburnett Road and The Views Senior Living is proposed near the Highway 100/East Post Road intersection.
