Troy-based Kirco has announced Monark Grove Clarkston, its first senior living community in Michigan. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022.
The groundbreaking of the 175,000-square-foot community, located at 7373 Sashabaw Road in Clarkston, took place during the summer of 2020. This is Kirco’s third senior housing community; the first two are in Alabama.
“As a Michigan-based company for over 45 years, we are thrilled to announce the first senior living community in our home state on a stunning 17-acre site in Clarkston, marking the introduction of the Monark Grove brand,” says Dean Kiriluk, chief investment officer for Kirco. “Residents of this community will enjoy an amenity-rich, resort-style approach to senior housing.”
The 148-unit community will be operated by Farmington Hills’ Beztak and offer three levels of care, including 77 units of independent living, 49 assisted living units, and 22 memory care units. They will feature a French-country architecture style and high-end interior finishes in the common areas and residences.
The site will offer gourmet meals crafted by an executive chef, a library, live entertainment, and opportunities to attend classes and lectures. Other amenities will include a fitness center and yoga studio, full-service salon, art studio, bocce court, pickle ball court, pub and bistro, and a garden with reflective water features and an outdoor fireplace. The location also offers access to downtown Clarkston.
“Our diverse, highly trained Beztak senior living management team will focus on creating an upscale lifestyle experience for the residents of Monark Grove Clarkston,” says Adam Snyder, senior vice president of operations for Beztak. “Our team will engage with the residents on a personal level, leading them in healthy, comfortable, and dignified lifestyles.”
