Wirt-Rivette Group (WRG) Senior Living Announces New Developments Breaking Ground in 2021

March 15, 2021

Wirt-Rivette Group (WRG) Senior Living is pleased to announce two new developments breaking ground this spring in Caledonia, MI and Marlette, MI. These projects total over 100,000 square feet in new construction and represent a combined investment of $23 million dollars to provide high quality, safe, and supportive living options to seniors in Michigan. WRG Senior Living’s continued expansion and new projects indicate that the industry overall is moving towards COVID-19 recovery and still demonstrates strong growth fundamentals based on population trends and the growing desire for seniors to comfortable age-in-place.

WRG President Clarence Rivette commented, “2020 represented the most challenging year on record for the senior living industry, and this was certainly true for our communities. We were humbled by the courage and compassion of our staff and are thankful for the resiliency of our residents and their families who were unable to see one another for so many months. We are grateful that our staff and residents have been vaccinated and that cases continue to decline so that we can look to the future and continue developing and managing premier senior communities throughout Michigan.”

One of these new developments is Legacies Village in Caledonia, MI, a new senior independent living and retirement community located at 6001 100th St. SE, Caledonia, Mich. The community is designed for an active senior lifestyle filled with recreation and social opportunity, while also providing support services and amenities to allow residents to comfortably age in place.

Legacies Village offers a variety of floorplans to meet different senior lifestyles including spacious standalone villas with attached garages as well as apartments conveniently attached to dining and community center facilities. The community will offer gourmet dining options, a robust activity calendar, housekeeping and laundry services, transportation services, a fitness center, and much more! Construction is slated for completion in Spring 2022 and reservation applications are currently being accepted.

WRG’s other senior living development underway is The Heartlands located in Marlette, MI. WRG Senior Living is proud to be providing development services and consulting to Marlette Regional Hospital which will own and operate the non-profit senior living community developed on a former golf course conveniently located across from the main hospital campus. The nearly 60,000 square foot community will offer 20 assisted living apartments, 12 memory care apartments, 20 independent living villas, and a spacious community center. The Heartlands, one of the largest construction projects in nearly a decade in Michigan’s Thumb region, will open in Spring 2022.

With the completion of these new projects, WRG Senior Living’s assets will include over 300 independent living, assisted living, and memory care units in 6 campuses throughout Michigan. WRG Senior Living also provides operational management services to 4 of these campuses, leading close to 200 dedicated employees and ensuring the highest quality care and services to our residents.
