ACC Board approves design for Merrill Gardens cottages


ANTHEM – Merrill Gardens at Anthem has received architectural design and construction approval from the Anthem Community Council Board of Directors for 13 cottages, moving the project forward. Merrill Gardens plans to construct the cottages on property adjoining the current Merrill Gardens retirement home. The cottages will be located on a private drive.

At the ACC Board’s Dec. 5 meeting, Anthem Community Council CEO Jenna Kohl noted that the Board had previously approved the concept of the cottages and that Merrill Gardens had gone through internal design review.

Board Treasurer Terry Mullarkey asked if the cottage road was private and was told that it would be.

“I think the design and the concept looks good,” Mullarkey said.

The Board unanimously approved the construction and design.

In an email to The Foothills Focus, Merrill Gardens at Anthem General Manager Krista Solomon outlined the plans for the cottages.

“Merrill Gardens at Anthem will be adding 13 single story free standing cottages, each cottage includes a private patio space and garage for a car and golf cart,” Solomon said. “Residents of the cottages will have access to amenities, activities, and dining services at Merrill Gardens while living in the cottages. We are beyond thrilled and excited for the next step in bringing more independent senior living housing options to our Anthem community.”
