launches senior living community at former Racquet Club site
RIT is moving forward
with plans for a senior living community at the vacated Racquet
Club apartment complex along the Genesee River. The community
will be called “Rivers Run” and will be limited to
adults at least 55 years old.
The development will
include 152 living units: 82 one- and two-bedroom apartments in
the main building and 70 cottages configured in three- and four-unit
clusters. Rents will range from $1,850 for the one-bedroom units
to $2,550 for a cottage with an optional den. Residents will have
a choice of meal plans and other “a la carte” services
from which to choose.
on Rivers Run complex will begin this fall.
Located south of campus
on East River Road, Rivers Run will link with RIT in a variety
of ways with residents having access to a host of university events
and activities. This includes the use of RIT facilities and discounted
tickets to RIT events.
Hiking trails, a wellness
spa, a convenience store, docks along the river and other amenities
are also planned for Rivers Run.
The project is scheduled
to break ground this fall with initial occupancy in late 2005.
