The Western Reserve Port Authority assisted EDM Inc. in developing a 76,000-square-foot assisted living center on US Route 224 in Poland. The 89-unit project will include 64 assisted living units and 25 memory care beds for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders.
“Briarfield Healthcare’s intent is to design and build senior living facilities that meet a need,” said Edward J. Reese, CEO of EDM and Briarfield. “Studies show that The Inn at Poland Way will do just that.” Once completed, the center “will provide full-service amenities in a safe environment that promotes aging in a place” for seniors in the Mahoning Valley region.
The $12 million center will create about 50 full-time equivalent jobs. The Western Reserve Port Authority assisted in financing this project through a capital lease wherein EDM was able to save significant costs through sales tax savings and through tax increment financing to help defray infrastructure costs.
