Gurwin’s Independent Living community approved by the State of New York, taking next step toward construction

Commack, NY – Fountaingate Gardens, the proposed Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community or CCRC) in Commack, moved closer to bringing a much-needed community to Long Island seniors when it received approvals from the New York State Department of Health on June 22, 2017 to begin accepting reservations.

This approval comes after a string of successes for Fountaingate Gardens, including unanimous zoning approvals from the Huntington Town Board and the Suffolk County Planning Commission as well as approvals for the height variance needed to construct the residential buildings as planned. This latest approval for residency will allow the project to begin taking 10 percent deposits from future residents to reserve a specific residence and lock-in the entrance fee.

“The community support for our project has been outstanding,” says Herbert H. Friedman, Executive Vice President/CEO of Gurwin, the project’s not-for-profit sponsor. “We’re now even closer to providing Long Island seniors with the opportunity to experience life-enriching services and amenities, all on a beautifully designed campus.”

Fountaingate Gardens has already garnered significant interest from area seniors, with the project’s Charter Club-an exclusive group made up of future residents-boasting more than 220 members. Charter Club members, in priority reservation order, will now be able to choose their new residence from among 15 different floor plans ranging from one bedroom to two bedroom den options, and place their reservation deposit. When 75 percent of the residences are reserved, preparations for the construction phase will begin. With only 176 residences available, and already more than 200 members in the Charter Club, area seniors are urged to act quickly to hold their place in line.

“Fountaingate Gardens is offering Long Island seniors the chance to join a newly constructed community with state-of-the-art amenities and exceptional services for a surprisingly comparable cost to remaining in their current homes,” says Laurie Stambler, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Besides a dynamic lifestyle, residents will have security and peace of mind knowing that any future health care needs will be met.”
