A Michigan senior living company has expanded its footprint in the region by acquiring a 111-unit community — which it plans to renovate.

Lloyd’s Bayou

American House Senior Living Communities in Bloomfield Hills said yesterday that it has acquired the senior living community Lloyd’s Bayou in Spring Lake, at 17046 Lloyd’s Bayou Rd.

The community, now American House Lloyd’s Bayou, contains a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments that range in size from 670-900 square feet.


American House said it plans to start renovating the property early this year.

A grand re-opening is expected in the spring of 2016.

The project will feature several elements: the addition of an Anytime Café; expanding the dining facilities; a renovated wellness center; addition of a multi-purpose room, which can be used as a movie theater or for religious service; and more.

“This is an exciting time, as we continue to expand the family owned and operated business,” said Rob Gillette, COO, American House Senior Living Communities. “We are in a continued state of growth in the Grand Rapids area, and it feels like home.”

Market expansion

Last October, the American House said it had acquired Oak Crest Communities and taken over four of the Oak Crest communities in Holland, Spring Lake, Jenison and Kentwood.

Dale Watchowski, president and CEO of American House Senior Living Communities, said then that American House owned about 37 communities in Michigan, with about six more under development, as well as six under development in Florida.

The company “continues to invest in western Michigan, expanding its strategic footprint in the Midwest,” Watchowski said.
