FLINT — The McFarlan Foundation of Flint has acquired the former Court Street Village active living apartments as part of their mission to provide quality living options for senior citizens.
The apartments located at the corner of East Court Street and Lapeer Road have been renamed Court Street Commons.
With this acquisition McFarlan now offers three distinct residential properties in their portfolio and has selected a new name, McFarlan Residential, to represent their parent organization.
“Keeping the Court Street Commons property locally owned allows us to work collaboratively with our neighbors in the Central Park and Fairfield Village neighborhoods located near Flint’s College and Cultural Center,” stated Bob Bessert, McFarlan board president.
“McFarlan Residential is committed to providing quality, affordable housing solutions for seniors – we like to call it senior living simplified,” said board member Louise McAra. “Our portfolio of properties now includes housing for senior women in an assisted living facility and apartments for those who desire a more active lifestyle,” says McAra.
“McFarlan Residential is guided by the vision of Mary McFarlan Whaley and provides safe and affordable housing for older adults and is proactive in creating additional opportunities for quality living,” said Eleanor Brownell, board member.
McFarlan residential properties include:
• McFarlan Home, located on Kearsley Street in Flint’s College and Cultural Center, offers comfortable, elegant housing for women over 60.
• Court Street Commons (East and West) provides carefree apartment living for active seniors living independently.
• Kearsley Manor, a 17-unit apartment community including efficiencies, studios and one bedrooms offers cost-effective living for those 50 and over.
