I have just completed reading the article, "Seniors may get local assisted living" (April 25 Grosse Pointe News), related to building a senior living center between Brys and Aline on Mack Avenue.
As a Grosse Pointe property owner, I found it quite interesting the objections to this project were made by a rental occupant rather than the home owners in the area. The renter planned to move in May and her future voting residence is in question.
There are many seniors in Grosse Pointe who would benefit from a residence as described in the article. We have many widows and widowers who are unable to maintain their homes but do not want to move from the community that has been their home for decades.
This is an ideal setting, as there are many stores and facilities within walking distance. Doctor's offices, dentist offices, hairdressers, cleaners, boutiques, banks, restaurants, shoe repair, grocery stores and more.
It is apparent that there has been a rebuilding of Mack Avenue in the past year and with the expansion of St. Joan of Arc, this building continues.
The addition of a senior residence whose architecture compliments the area would be a plus for this community.
