Details: Presbyterian Homes & Services and its development arm, Senior Housing Partners, are moving ahead this fall with a renovation and expansion at the Maranatha Senior Living campus in Brooklyn Center.
The effort first began in 2011. At that time, the campus consisted of a 64-unit assisted-living apartment building constructed in 1988 and a nursing home built in 1949. After winning city permissions to rezone the campus to a “planned unit development” designation, Presbyterian Homes razed the nursing home and replaced it with a 97-bed skilled nursing facility.
The new phase includes another new building, originally envisioned as a 38-unit independent living apartment complex. The firms changed plans in June. They eliminated four units in order to integrate some larger apartments into the mix.
Sizes in the new three-story building will be 687 to 798 square feet for one-bedroom units and 927 to 1,190 square feet for two bedroom units.
All the units will have balconies. And there is an underground garage with 39 parking spaces in the plan.
Exterior materials include cement lapboard and shingle-style siding; rock face cement masonry blocks; white vinyl windows; color-coordinated asphalt roof shingles; and composite columns for the outer balconies.
