Developer eyes Strawberry site for 110-unit care facility
A developer has submitted preliminary plans to build a four-story, 110-unit residential care center on a vacant site above Tiburon Boulevard in Strawberry — and the project could be eligible for streamlined approval under Marin County’s housing plan.
The 118,158-square-foot project from the Larkspur-based Spirit Living Group, which develops and operates senior housing communities throughout the Bay Area, would sit at the base of a hill on 3.1 acres of the 6.6-acre property at 70 North Knoll Road.
The main building, which would be about 44 feet tall, would have 41 memory-care suites with common and outdoor areas on the first floor and 69 independent senior-living suites on the remaining floors. There would also be a detached barn for an equestrian therapy program. The remaining area would be preserved as open space.
There would be 31 underground parking spots and another 10 outdoor spots.
The plans are in the pre-application phase, in which county staff and other public agencies will work with the applicant to provide feedback before an official application is submitted, said Immanuel Bereket, a planner with the county.
