WALTHAM, MA–Boston Real Estate Times, the region’s integrated online, print and video real estate magazine, announced that it has added Senior Living Residences founder and CEO Robert Larkin as a panelist to its 10th Annual Boston Senior Living Summit on March 20th at Westin Hotel in Waltham, MA.
Mr. Larkin is credited with developing one of the first assisted living communities in Massachusetts. The summit is organized by the Boston Real Estate Times, area’s premier source of commercial real estate news and information.
Mr. Larkin started Senior Living Residences (SLR) in 1990, developing one of the first assisted living communities in Massachusetts. He is a leading authority on the design, development and operation of independent senior housing, assisted living, and Alzheimer’s care communities across multiple states, with specific expertise in not-for-profit community operations, and tax-credit and tax-exempt financed projects.
A pioneer and catalyst for assisted living in Massachusetts, Mr. Larkin worked with government officials to draft the legislation and regulations establishing and governing the industry in the state. He was among the original founders/members of the Massachusetts Assisted Living Association (MassALA) and served in numerous leadership roles for the organization, representing and advocating for the industry before various regulatory and legislative forums.
Under Mr. Larkin’s leadership, over the past 30 years SLR developed a proven track record in the development and management of over 40 projects. The company is known for rapid lease-up in new projects, stabilized occupancy rates consistently averaging in the high 90’s across SLR’s portfolio, and cost-effective operations management bringing developments to a position of maximum financial strength.
Prior to entering the assisted living industry, Mr. Larkin worked in real estate development and syndication. He also served in state government as Director of the Massachusetts Securities Division, as Massachusetts Deputy Secretary of State, and as an elected representative in the Massachusetts Legislature. Mr. Larkin received his BA from Boston College and law degree from Suffolk University.
