Artis Senior Living, a Pennsylvania-based owner of memory care assisted living facilities, has proposed a 39,000 square foot facility for Brick, according to planning documents.

The company is seeking approval to build the facility on a wooded lot fronting Jack Martin Boulevard, near the intersection of Marlow Avenue, according to tax maps. It would be located next door to Chelsea at Brick, a separate senior living facility.

According to documents submitted to the township’s planning board, the building would be a residential facility, though the documents do not specify the number of beds that would be included – simply that the entire building would be 39,000 square feet in size. The project requires a number of variances before it can be approved, for minimum parking stall width, as well as for its setback to a nearby residential community. A 50 foot setback is required where less than 50-feet is proposed.

A few other minor setback variances are being requested, including relied on the requirement that a 20 foot setback or buffer is required between any right-of-way and a parking area, whereas a 12.5 feet setback within the buffer is proposed to Jack Martin Boulevard.

The project will be presented at the April 26 planning board meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex.

    12.5 feet setback instead of 20′ is a big difference, that is getting close to residential set backs, which is nothing. Less than 50’….ummmm well how much less than 50′? C’mon Brick, we are all like sardines now! Would love to see additional taxable like a facility like this, but at what cost? They need to start showing the “advantages” to the taxpayer in order to continue, otherwise just more money that gets wasted not helping the taxpayer. Not to mention how the residential neighbors feel…….

    I don’t know. There seems to be a huge increase in the need for memory care facilities. Maybe Artis Senior Living has a fresh approach and innovative design for their facilities. I can’t believe they want to build right next door to a Chelsea.
