If you’re among the many local retirees who have been waiting for your chance to move to Fox Run, there is good news for you. Fox Run’s management team recently announced plans to construct a new residence building featuring 94 brand-new apartment homes.

“Fox Run decided the time was right for growth in the form of a new residence building because our occupancy is nearly full and the list of people wanting to move to Fox Run has grown over 35% within the last two years,” Associate Executive Director Fred Moschetta says. “We last constructed a new building six years ago, and within those six years, the local economy has improved along with how fast houses are selling with the support of our Erickson Realty and Moving Services—the time was right for many reasons.”

An honored name

The new building will be named Edgewater, in honor of Detroit’s classic amusement park. For many Michiganders, Edgewater evokes the warmth and carefree spirit of Detroit’s golden era—which is exactly the kind of lifestyle people who move to Fox Run can expect. The new residence building will be connected to the existing Belmont Clubhouse, giving residents easy access to all of the amenities, club meetings, and full-service restaurants at Fox Run. 

Fox Run is well known for its attractively landscaped grounds and picturesque views of nature. Edgewater will be built near a pond, and a select number of apartment homes will feature soothing water views. 

A floor plan for every lifestyle

The new building also will feature 16 never-before-seen apartment home floor plans. Couples who love to entertain at home will want to check out the Springwell, a deluxe, two-bedroom, two-bath apartment home with a den and balcony or patio. The spacious unit features an eat-in kitchen and a large open living/dining room. Dog owners will gravitate to the Palmer, an extra-large, two-bedroom, two-bath home with a patio for convenient access to trails for morning walks. Avid cooks will relish in the Parker floor plan’s roomy kitchen and large walk-in pantry. The deluxe, two-bedroom, two-bath unit also features an oversized great room that’s perfect for hosting family and friends for casual dinners or formal holiday meals. 

Many retirees moving to Fox Run are ready to trade the maintenance and cleaning of a large house for a one-level, maintenance-free home that fits their active retirement lifestyles. Those people will love the efficiency of the Grayson, a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath apartment home that provides plenty of open living space without a bunch of extra rooms to collect clutter.

Like all of the apartment homes at Fox Run, the units at Edgewater will offer 90% refundable entrance deposits ranging from about $200,000 to $400,000. Depending on the unit size and occupancy, 2014 monthly service package rates range from $1,930 to $2,980. In addition to 24/7 home maintenance, the monthly service package includes all utilities (except telephone), use of all campus amenities, flexible meal plan options, real estate taxes, and access to Fox Run’s myriad clubs and activities. 

As a fee-for-service continuing care retirement community, Fox Run offers higher levels of care on campus, and people only pay for that care should they ever need it. 

Now is the time to secure your place in line

When construction of the Edgewater is complete, Fox Run will feature a total of eight residence buildings on its spacious campus. Moschetta says he expects about 150 new residents to move into Edgewater. 

Fox Run’s newest residence building is scheduled to open in spring 2015.
