Elder care facility proposed on grounds of St. Benedict’s Church

By Paul Maryniak | Arizonan

St. Benedict’s Catholic Church hopes to build a high-end 138-unit senior housing facility on its 19.2-acre campus on 48th Street south of Chandler Boulevard.

Acting on the church’s behalf, Shea Connelly Development of Scottsdale has submitted a rezoning request to the city Planning and Development Department to rezone 4.62 acres to accommodate the facility.

Shea Connelly has scheduled a required neighborhood meeting for 6:30 p.m. May 16 at Pecos Community Center, not far south of the church, to discuss the project.

In a letter to area homeowners, it said the facility would house 66 independent living units, 44 assisted living quarters and 28 memory care residences.

“Senior facilities are in high demand and providing these housing options on a church campus affords a unique opportunity to serve and support the medical and spiritual needs of the city’s elder community,” the developer wrote neighbors.

“The project has been proposed by St. Benedict’s Church and has enlisted a national senior care housing leader, Cogir Senior Living, to manage the facility,” the letter stated. “The goal is to being a state-of-the-art senior care facility to the church’s existing campus near 48th Street and Frye Road.”
