$23M assisted living community in Greece to create some 200 jobs

Rochester Regional Health and Columbia/Wegman Acquisition II LLC on Friday announced plans to build and manage a 111-bed assisted living community on Mill Road in Greece.

The $23 million project, which is scheduled to be complete in fall 2016, is expected to create 140 construction and 70 permanent jobs.

The new two-story New York State-licensed community will consist of 79 assisted living apartments, and a 32-unit memory care community serving residents who need specialized care  for Alzheimer’s and other dementias, officials said.

Rochester Regional Health’s The Village at Unity will manage the community. The Village currently manages more than 300 independent living, assisted living, memory care units.

Columbia/Wegman Acquisition II, which is building assisted living communities nationwide, is a joint venture between Rochester-based Wegman Cos. Inc. and Seattle-based Columbia Pacific Senior Housing Fund II.

“My grandfather, father and now my siblings and I, have been involved with Rochester Regional Health for many years—and we share similar values when it comes to senior care,” said Jay Wegman, vice president of Wegman Cos., in a statement.

Don Felter, president of Rochester Regional Health’s Housing Division, said “Residents living in this new community will enjoy a state of the art facility, and benefit from our extensive experience and resources in support of their health, safety and well-being.”

The County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency last month granted the project some. $2.6 million in tax breaks. The estimated state and regional benefits of the project are estimated at $3.6 million.

The two-story, 93,000-square-foot building will be located on 9.5 acres, COMIDA records show.
