Providing turn-key development that facilitates the build-out of the senior community

Marathon provides ‘turn-key services' that facilitate the development of the project from the client’s vision to the occupancy of the completed project.  We believe that the key to a successful development is to seek accountable services and responsible project leadership.  In doing so, we understand that there is a tremendous amount at stake in the development process.  Our goal is to ensure that the client’s long-term goals are realized proficiently and expeditiously. 

Marathon also provides capital planning and capital improvement consulting for senior citizen housing.  As an assisted living consultant, independent living consultant, and memory care consultant Marathon provides guidance to owner operators looking to improve occupancy.

As an independent living consultant Marathon provides guidance with the re-positioning of the senior housing development incorporating assisted living and memory care.

A significant portion of our development work has been with non-profit organizations; including health districts, private non-profit 501c3, housing authorities, hospital districts, faith-based 501c3 and senior centers, as well as private for-profit organizations including Emeritus Senior Living, Life Care Services, Senior Services of America, Cascade Living Group, National Health Investors and Village Concepts. 

In providing development services, Marathon receives a fee that is a lender allowed project cost.  The development fee is financed and disbursed from the loan in the same manner as the architect or general contractor.  Lenders or Bond Holders prefer to have a skilled developer involved in the process as it ensures a firsthand, expertly managed project schedule and budget, as well as overall project coordination; ensuring each development step is efficiently and professionally managed.

Marathon has a clear understating of non-profit board governance and the accompanying time and decision process involved. Owner references, as well as lender, general contractor, architect, civil engineer, and management company referrals are available should they be requested. 

We are proud members of:
