The president and partners of Garden City-based developer Engel Burman Group announced on April 12 the official opening of The Bristal at Jericho, a 180-unit assisted living complex at 310 Jericho Turnpike. The 200,000-square-foot building, which was reportedly built with tax breaks from Nassau County’s Industrial Development Agency, is spread over nine acres. The three-story building has 144 assisted living units and another 36 memory care apartments for people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. As of its opening, 50 people were already living in the facility, which has studio, one- and two-bedroom units starting at $6,500 per month, according to Long Island Business News. Included in the rent are services such as bathing, dressing and medication management. Other amenities include an outdoor pool, eatery, fitness center, cinema, library, game room and performance space. The facility is the 17th in Engel Burman’s assisted living portfolio, which The Real Deal touched on in a February report about a rise in senior living centers across the Tri-State area. The Bristal is also part of the same campus as the Bristal Grand, a luxury community for seniors that is slated to open next month. LIBN noted that Engel Burman has another six Bristal-branded communities in the works, one of which is in the Suffolk County hamlet of Mount Sinai. [LIBN]
