Grosse Pointe Woods — The Wayne County Treasurer’s Office reported that on Wednesday, Sept. 27, The Rivers senior living facility on Cook Road paid its delinquent 2014 tax balance of $671,462.89 and 2015 tax balance of $887,461.09. The amount owed for 2016 is $1.3 million and was due Sunday, Oct 1.

The Grosse Pointe News reported June 22, The Rivers was in forfeited status for the tax years of 2014 and 2015 and the Wayne County treasurer filed a foreclosure action against the property in circuit court June 15, 2017.

In December 2016, the property was assessed at $12 million by the Michigan State Tax Tribunal. This was after The Rivers’ owner Richard Levin challenged the city’s initial assessment of $18 million.

The Rivers is a continuing care retirement community of privately owned condominiums, independent living apartments, assisted living facilities and a skilled nursing facility.
