MADISON -- Groundbreaking ceremonies will take place Friday, Oct. 31, for the All Saints senior neighborhood on Madison's west side.
The nine-acre neighborhood is near the intersection of Watts Rd. and Commerce Dr. It is also adjacent to the Bishop O'Connor Catholic Pastoral Center.
Three different phases
The senior neighborhood will be developed in three phases:
All Saints Retirement Center will be a building with 144 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes that range from 729 to 1,220 square feet in size. All Saints Retirement Center will open in summer 2004 and offer both income-eligible and market-rate apartments.
The Cottages at All Saints will be 12 duplexes for seniors available in two designs that range from 1,500 to 1,850 square feet in size. The duplexes will be available through a life-lease program and will open in summer 2004.
A third phase will address the current senior housing market need and could include assisted living, memory care, or other senior housing services. Full story ...
