Ground has been broken for the new $14 million Bel Rae senior living community in Mounds View.
The three-story, 105,000-square-foot senior community will provide independent and assisted living units, as well as memory-care apartments.
Located at 2330 County Hwy. 10, the complex was designed by Minneapolis-based Kaas Wilson Architects, and is being built by Nottingham Construction of Stillwater. The community is owned by Bel Rae Senior Living and will be managed by Ebenezer Management Services.
Completion date is expected by March 2015.
The Bel Rae will be the only assisted living and memory care apartments in Mounds View. It will feature state-of-the-art monitoring and reporting technology, overnight guest rooms, underground parking, a community room, and a high-end, restaurant-quality dining room that will prepare meals onsite for the residents.The senior community will also provide an activities director and a full-time nurse who is on-call 24 hours a day, and on-site visits by geriatric physicians and nurse practitioners.
“The Bel Rae exemplifies the city’s understanding of how important it is to keep seniors in their communities,” said Glen Harstad, a partner at Mounds View Properties, which is developing the project.
