Danbury of Hudson is a proposed Continuing Care Retirement Community at Omni Lake Parkway containing a three-story building with 62 senior apartments, a three-story 112-unit living facility, and a one story 38 unit memory care building. The site improvements also include a total of 174 surface parking spaces and an additional 80 enclosed parking spaces.
North and east of the subject property is Lake Forest Country Club golf course and the City of Hudson Boston Mills Park. To the west is office development along Boston Mills Road, South of the subject property is single family residential development within the Oak Point Commons subdivision. This site and the abutting parcels to the west, north, and east are in District 6; the adjacent development to the south is within District 3.
The 150 unit building will provide housing for congregate care, assisted living and memory care, and all units will be licensed by the Ohio Department of Health as a Residential Care Facility (RCF) which is the state's terminology for what others call assisted living. This building will have a full range of health and social services including nurses, resident aides, activity leaders, dining services, and housekeeping services. The level of service for each resident will be based on an assessment of their needs, and can be customized to the needs of each resident. This building is staffed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
The 62 unit building will be age restricted and provide independent living. These residents will have access to all services of the first building on an a la carte basis. These options would include housekeeping, transportation, dining options, and social programs and activities. They will also have a community room and fitness area in their building. The market for this building is to provide age restricted housing for those not requiring health care, but wanting to be adjacent to a facility that does provide full services when the need arises.
