The massive 106,500 square-foot retirement community will be located on the soon to be constructed Blake Boulevard at the northeast corner of Airline Highway and Greenacres Blvd.

Glenn Barclay, Shreveport native and COO for Blake Management Group, reveals “The Blake features a full continuum of services in richly appointed Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care residences.  All of those options will be housed within one resort-style community.  If needs change, the people who live here stay here. I am proud to bring a new tradition in senior living to my hometown.”

Blake at Bossier City will provide elegant dining options, concierge service, 24-hour nurse staffing, and an active social program. Other amenities include a pre-function lounge; coffee and ice cream shop; salon & spa; outpatient physical therapy; chapel; putting greens and outdoor activity courts; theater room; beautifully landscaped courtyards with an outdoor fire pavilion, fountains and raised gardens;  business center and library;  fitness center; transportation and on-site parking.

When fully occupied, The Blake anticipates creating 70 full and part-time jobs and will become an integral part of the Bossier City community. Quality Senior Living (QSL) is the developer and Arrive Architecture Group based in Dallas, Texas is providing architectural design.  EBM Group is the General Contractor.
