Eventide and RISE Companies break ground for active adult 55+ community

Eventide Senior Living Communities and RISE Companies have announced plans for Sanders Flats, a new active adult 55+ apartments in Moorhead. Construction has begun at 1601 S. Eighth St., immediately south of Eventide’s Moorhead campus.

“Eventide’s history is marked by our passion to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs and wants of older adults,” said Jon Riewer, President and CEO of Eventide Senior Living Communities. “By offering an additional choice of an active adult 55+ community, today’s seniors can enjoy a secure building, with beautiful apartments and a competitive price point in a great location.”

Eventide opened its first care center in Moorhead in 1951 and have expanded their services over time to offer independent living, assisted living, memory care, transitional/rehabilitation care, and skilled nursing care in Moorhead, Fargo, West Fargo, Jamestown and Devils Lake.

When completed, Sanders Flats will offer 46 apartments, with a variety of one, two and three bedroom layouts. Amenities will include a large community room, a wellness room, common areas and underground parking. The plan also includes a skyway which will connect the building to The Linden, Eventide’s senior living apartment building to the north.

“The active adult 55+ community is a different concept for us and we are excited to provide an option for seniors who want an upscale yet affordable home base while they go about their active lives,” explained Riewer. “The tenants will have options to dining amenities across the street if they wish. If they want to take the skyway over to The Linden to enjoy a meal at Eighth Street Eatery, they can conveniently do so.”

Eventide has partnered with local RISE Companies to develop the project. RISE Companies partner company C2 Construction will manage the construction of the project.

“Our company’s mission is to build up people, buildings and communities,” said Matt Baasch, president of RISE Companies. “This project fits who we are perfectly and we’re beyond excited to be breaking ground.  Eventide has been an industry leader in our community and a great partner in this project.  This building will serve a key demographic in Moorhead and Fargo for years to come.”

The project is expected to be completed by early spring of 2024. For more information on Sanders Flats, call 218-291-2200.
