Muscatine Living

MUSCATINE, Iowa–Last weekend, Oak Park Senior Living began giving tours of its new apartment complex in Muscatine. The development’s first several buildings have started leasing apartments. When completed, the independent living community for moderate and low income seniors over the age of 55 will feature 48 units.

Joe Marone, vice president of operations for Pioneer Property Management, the group which owns Oak Park Senior Living, shared they built the new development in response to popular demand at Cottage Grove Senior Living in Muscatine, which they also own. “When you start to see that wait list grow and grow and grow, you know it’s a good time to add units,” said Marone.

Designed specifically for moderate and low income seniors, Oak Park Senior living does have maximum income requirements for residents, which they adjust each year based on the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s average median income for the county. To find this year’s income requirements, Marone encouraged perspective renters to visit Oak Park Senior Living’s website. With COVID-19 creating economic difficulties for many, Marone felt pleased to offer a new reasonably priced living option. “Especially in this current economy, it’s really nice to offer affordable housing,” he stated.

Oak Park Senior Living will feature triplexes of single story apartments. Each two bedroom, pet friendly, unit includes its own washer and dryer, full kitchen, closets with organizers, additional storage area, ceiling fans, and free internet connectivity. Additionally, those who live there will also have access to a clubhouse with a small library and a fitness center including free weights and exercise machines. The development will also have outdoor green space for residents who enjoy walking outside.

Right now, Marone estimates that work has wrapped up on 40% of Oak Park Senior Living’s units and that construction will finish on the remaining buildings within the next two months to 75 days. If you would like a showing, he encourages you to contact Tammy in their leasing office at (563)-288-1738. Alternately, perspective renters can visit Oak Park Senior Living’s website and fill out a form requesting a showing.

Located near the intersections of Isett Avenue and Blaine Street, Oak Park Senior Living looks forward to welcoming its first tenants soon and to becoming a vibrant new part of the community.
