|Prospective homeowners admire the accommodations at The Moorings at Rivers Run.
After several years of planning and development, The Moorings at Rivers Run, Phase I, is now open.
Living Communities LLC, a local senior living development firm affiliated with Christa Development Corp., is building this $20 million housing community for individuals 55 and older in collaboration with RIT. Located along the Genesee River, the adult community promotes lifelong learning in a Chautauqua-like setting.
The community is being built on 28 acres of land originally owned by RIT. Rivers Run includes The Moorings, a complex of 67 cottage homes for sale and 82 apartment homes for lease. A community center will host a restaurant, club room, lecture halls, fitness center, computer center, library and more.
The center will also be the home of OLLI at RIT (see page 15), an educational organization that offers classes to people over 50.
The cottage homes are two bedrooms and two bathrooms each. The price starts at $189,900. The apartments will be one- and two-bedroom units with monthly rents starting at $1,850.
The project is being financed by M & T Bank. Reservations are being taken now for the apartments, which are planned for
a 2008 completion.
