Lake County’s port authority preparing to issue bonds for Wickliffe senior assisted living and memory care facility

The Lake County Port and Economic Development Authority is in the process of issuing bonds for the development of a senior assisted living and memory care facility in Wickliffe.

The Port Authority’s board approved an inducement resolution at its most recent meeting to start the process of issuing up to $48 million in bonds to finance the project.

Minnesota-based LaSalle Development Group Ltd. initiated the project that will be developed and eventually operated by Tapestry Wickliffe, LLC.

The facility will be located at the former Mosley Select Suites sites at 28500 Euclid Ave. The site has been vacant since 2014 after the hotel was determined to be a nuisance because of safety issues, unsanitary conditions and violations of the zoning code, specifically fire codes.

In November 2016, Wickliffe residents overwhelming voted to rezone the property from general business to private recreational/institutional.

According to the Port Authority, Tapestry will completely renovate the facility and create 167 unites. Of that, 111 will be senior assisted living and 56 will be memory care units.

Also included will be a commercial kitchen, salon, spa, offices, physical rehabilitation facilities and other miscellanies support facilities.

Once fully occupied, the facility is expected to create approximately 80 full-time jobs and 20 part-time jobs.

Tapestry Senior Living Opens its Doors

Tours were provided Monday at Tapestry Senior Living, a new assisted living and memory care facility off North Monroe Street near I-10.

The 24-hour facility has 149 studio apartments. Amenities include a full-service restaurant, an outdoor courtyard, walking trail, beauty salon, wellness center, chapel and movie theater. The facility is owned and developed by Tapestry Senior Housing Management, LLC and Tapestry Senior Housing Development, LLC, which are comprised of principals within the Minneapolis-based LaSalle Group.

Tapestry is one of several assisted living facilities that have been in the works. The boom in this particular industry is largely linked to population projections that reflect an increase in senior citizens for the Tallahassee area.

The rise of assisted living facilities

“Tallahassee was an excellent location of this state of the art senior assisted living facility due to the outstanding quality of life, vibrant active senior population, and great reception from the community and local government," said Tom LaSalle of the Minneapolis-based LaSalle Group, in a statement.

2016 Election Results: Wickliffe voters approved rezoning hotel to assisted living facility

By Tawana Roberts, The News-Herald

Posted: 11/8/16

Wickliffe voters decided on Nov. 8 to approve the rezoning of the former Mosley Select Suites on 28500 Euclid Ave. from a general business to private recreational/institutional by 83 percent.  According to unofficial final results from the Lake County Elections Board, voters approved it 4,768 to 976.  Current owner Atul Patel said he is pleased with the election results and looks forward to continuing with the plan.  The four-story structure will be converted into an assisted living facility with a memory unit.   It will be called Tapestry Senior Living Wickliffe of Ohio.

Patel said in a previous interview that the plan required about $7 million of interior and exterior renovations.  With most of the interior work completed, Patel said he plans to invest an additional $8 million in the remaining construction and landscaping.

The proposed facility will consist of 76 single-occupancy memory care units, 53 single-occupancy assisted living units and 22 one-bedroom assisted living units.  “There’s a huge need in the community for an assisted living facility,” he said.  It will generate about 75 full-time jobs, add tax revenue and enhance economic development, he added.

Patel said Tapestry Senior Living Wickliffe of Ohio should be ready to open by June 15, 2017.
