A new senior living facility is set to open soon in Biloxi, creating more jobs and featuring brand new amenities.
Caring for our senior citizens is an important task and a new facility off Popp’s Ferry Road is set to bring a new touch to senior care. Caroline Barry said, “We like to participate in that growth and development and this Popp’s Ferry corridor was recently worked on, we’ve got a new fire station across the street, It’s really personal for the people who founded The Blake.”
Construction work is wrapping up at The Blake at Biloxi. The 115,000 square foot facility is owned by QSL and will feature 118 apartments and perks like a piano bar, spa, and full feature theater once open.
The facility features four different floor plans in varying sizes to meet the needs of residents. “We’re going to go out and do all kinds of things in the community, tour museums, go to the theatre and bring as much entertainment as we can in also.”
Ward 6 Councilmember Kenny Glavan says the presence of The Blake cements Biloxi’s status as a growing retirement community. “Competition is growing and not only in this segment but any segment, and anytime you can claim that you have a state-of-the-art facility, that gets people’s attention.”
With The Blake set to create nearly 100 jobs when they open early next year, the economic impact is expected to be positive. “A 25-million-dollar investment, initial investment in our community, and for the active older adults, they can’t wait to experience all The Blake has to offer.”
