Brooklyn-Based Markstone Group Seeks To Develop Senior Living Community In Wilton

WILTON — Brooklyn-based developers The Markstone Group have proposed construction of an age 55-plus senior housing community on Route 50 in Wilton.

The community would have 390 units across three buildings at 4029 Route 50, according to minutes from the Town of Wilton Planning Board’s January meeting. The location is currently occupied by The Christmas Gift Shop.

Two of the buildings would be L-shaped and approximately 39,000 square feet, with a third, longer building of approximately 42,000 square feet set back from the other two. The buildings would each be four stories and have 130 units, according to the meeting minutes.

The project would be Markstone’s second senior living community in the Capital Region. Hamilton Parc, another adult living community, currently is under construction in Guilderland. Jacob Freund, COO of The Markstone Group, said on Monday that the company was drawn to the area after seeing a need for such facilities.
