The Mariner offers lifestyle options that fit a range of retiree and senior needs. The New England colonial-style development will be built atop a 4.5-acre hillside on Pleasant Street and will offer walking paths, sitting areas, patios, and gardens. The Mariner will also offer a variety of services, activities, and amenities for residents, including a full-service restaurant, private dining, lounge, cafe, living rooms, beauty salon, health and wellness room, library, and movie theater. The facility’s ground floor will provide an area for those with memory care needs, while the first and second floors offer a combination of apartments including assistance options.

The project is scheduled for a February 2023 completion.
