Construction is expected to begin this month on Monarch White Marsh, a nearly $80 million senior living community that will be part of the 113-acre master planned mixed-use development Villages of White Marsh centrally located in Baltimore County, Maryland. Offering the continuum of care on a rental basis, the highly-amenitized community will be connected to a 20-acre park via a walking bridge providing access to 40 acres of open space and walking trails. Expected to open in late 2023, the property is being developed and will be managed by White Marsh-based Monarch Communities to meet the needs of Baltimore County’s growing 60-plus population.
The four-story Monarch White Marsh will provide 188 independent living, assisted living and memory care apartments. The community’s amenities and services are tailored to the newest generation of older adults and their families. They include concierge service; resident-response wearable technology; culinary options from gourmet restaurants to a pub, café, and juice bar; an outdoor dining area; a pet-friendly environment with available pet services; a bocce court and labyrinth; raised garden beds; and more.
A pedestrian-friendly plaza in front of the community is designed to host a wide variety of events. Walking paths on the grounds will connect to an adjacent park, while access to prime retail such as a Giant Food grocery store and the shops of the Avenue at White Marsh Mall is only a half mile away. Residents will benefit from the best of both worlds: a tranquil residential environment in a park-like setting with close proximity to retail and entertainment.
Monarch White Marsh is designed in accordance with guidelines from the International WELL Building Institute, or IWBI, which focuses on enhancing people’s health and well-being through building design, construction and operations. WELL is a performance-based certification system based on categories of building performance that include air, water, light, nourishment, fitness, comfort and mind.
“We are very excited to meet the needs of Baltimore County’s growing 60-plus population with this innovatively designed community,” said Andrew Teeters, a managing partner of Monarch Communities. “We understand the new generation of older adults wants to be defined by their potential and this imperative is at the center of everything we do.”
