RIT 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.

Construction 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. More information is available by calling Claudia Blumenstock at 585-624-7650, or by visiting the Web at www.riversrunliving.com
