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.
