A senior living facility in the works beside Maybeury Elementary School and the Tuckahoe Family YMCA is moving forward after a recent land deal.
An entity tied to Build Senior Living paid $1.9 million for the 6-acre site at 9301 Patterson Ave., where it will develop an assisted living and memory care facility.
The Aug. 5 deal clears the way for the $23 million project. It is planned to total 98 units with 63 assisted living units and 35 memory care units across a single-story, 80,400-square-foot structure. It would fill the currently wooded site, which was previously approved for 30 detached homes.
The seller in the deal was Gumenick Properties, which secured the prior zoning approval in 2010. A rezoning and provisional-use permit to allow the assisted living facility was approved by Henrico supervisors in June.
The county had assessed the property at just over $1 million. The Gumenick family had owned the site since 1965, when the land was last purchased for $304,000, property records show.
The purchasing entity is managed by Shahid Imran, CEO of Build Senior Living. The Michigan-based investment management firm has developed similar facilities primarily in its home state, as well as Missouri and Florida, according to its website. It has two projects under construction in Virginia: one in Williamsburg, and another in Chesapeake.
Imran said construction is slated to start in spring 2023, with completion projected about a year out from that. Michigan-based Seidell Architects is designing the building, and Richmond-based Timmons Group is handling engineering work. Imran said a general contractor has not been selected.
Referred to in plans as Hampton Manor of Richmond, the facility would be accessed from Maybeury Drive and from a YMCA access road on the east side of the site. A sidewalk is planned along Patterson and Maybeury, and the company has proffered 10-foot-wide tree buffers along the perimeter of the property. A black aluminum rail fence also would be installed along the school side.
Units will range in size from 337-square-foot studios to 720-square-foot one- and two-bedroom floorplans. Planned amenities include a movie theater, hair salon, dining room, library, spa and “restaurant-style” food. Unit rents are to start at $3,500 a month.
