Updated with Virtual Tour! Is the Holly Your Perfect Home?

Picture yourself waking up in a new community. Does your day begin with coffee and breakfast with friends or a swim in the heated indoor saltwater pool? Should you have lunch at the bistro or dine in the formal dining room? To round out your day, do you prefer a walk on the scenic campus trails or an aerobics class in the fitness center?

These are just a few of the many options you’ll have for your days and nights when you choose to make Fountaingate Gardens your home. But, before you begin planning an impressive social agenda, you get to decide where you want to live. The first phase of Fountaingate Gardens will include only 176 spacious apartment homes. In addition to many spacious two-bedroom floorplans, you’ll also find some charming smaller units that offer exceptional value, including the Holly, a maintenance-free 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom residence with a den.

Maps and Engineering Plans Are Under Final Review!

We’ve received several key approvals from the Town of Huntington, and we are getting closer and closer to construction. That means that Fountaingate Gardens, the contemporary Life Plan Community* backed by Gurwin, is even closer to reality.

Fountaingate Gardens Receives Approvals from Town of Huntington Planning Board

Commack, NY – Fountaingate Gardens, the proposed Life Plan Community* sponsored by Gurwin in Commack, recently received several key approvals that have allowed the project to move closer to construction.

“These approvals are exciting for us, because each is a step closer to allowing us to serve more of Long Island’s residents,” Herb Friedman, Fountaingate Gardens’ President and CEO said. “We’re looking forward to bringing contemporary senior living to Commack.”

Last month, the Town of Huntington Planning Board approved a preliminary map for a subdivision of the property where the project will be built. Gurwin purchased the 10-acre parcel in 2005. The preliminary approval was the first step in a process to grant a new subdivision between the proposed community and the adjacent property. A hearing to approve the final map is expected in the near future.

Additionally, the Suffolk County Sewer Agency accepted Gurwin’s application for handling the additional waste treatment needs associated with the new community. The acceptance of the application initiates the design and engineering review process for the new plant.

Finally, the Huntington Town Board approved a slight modification in the zoning for the Fountaingate Gardens project related to its internal road system and access to Commack Road.

Fountaingate Gardens, a proposed Life Plan Community, will offer new independent living apartments and a range of services and amenities to seniors in the heart of Long Island. As approvals are finalized, construction is planned to begin before the end of the year.

Life Plan Communities* offer residents a wide range of benefits that promote active and independent living. One important benefit is the peace of mind residents have knowing that additional levels of care are readily available should their health needs ever change.

Some of our depositors have asked if they will lose the ability to make their own healthcare decisions when they move to Fountaingate Gardens. The short answer? Continue reading “To the Point: “How Are Healthcare Decisions Made for Residents of a Life Plan Community?””

Fountaingate Gardens: Making Travel Easier

One of the perks of retiring is having more free time, and it can be fun deciding what to do with it! You can prioritize what’s important to you – volunteering, spending time with family, or maybe travelling the world! For Susan Lustig, a member of Fountaingate Gardens’ Founder’s Club (which means she’s already chosen her future home and placed a reservation deposit), travel is important. Recently, she took a 20-day tour of Israel, Egypt and Jordan.

“I’ve been to Israel several times; I’ll always go back,” she said. “The last time I was there was in 2006. Every time you go, the country is new. Sites I’ve seen before are new and different. But in particular, I wanted to see Petra. It’s an extraordinary sight – partially man-made, but also almost like a natural park with rock formations created by wind and water.” Continue reading “Fountaingate Gardens: Making Travel Easier”

Jewish Senior Living

Financial considerations are important when you’re making the decision to move to a Life Plan Community* like the proposed Fountaingate Gardens that will be built in Commack, New York. You may know that when you move to a Life Plan Community, you’ll pay a one-time entrance fee, and thereafter, your monthly service package.

The Laurel: Luxurious One-Bedroom with Den Living

Take a moment to think about the rooms you use in your current home. You probably start your day waking in your bedroom, moving to the bathroom to get ready for the day, and into the kitchen for breakfast. You might relax for a bit in the living room or den/family room by reading the newspaper or watching TV before heading out to run errands or meet friends.

Do the rooms you use in your everyday life include your second and third bedroom or bathroom? Do they include the outdoor space, like your front or back yard?  If the answer is “no,” “not really,” or “not as much as it used to,” why take time out of your day to clean, dust, maintain, and mow the spaces you don’t use?

That’s the benefit of luxurious one-bedroom living at Fountaingate Gardens! At this proposed Life Plan Community to be built in Commack, you’ll be able to choose a spacious apartment home that exactly fits your current and future needs, not those of the past.
