Jewish professional ja77 musi-
cian and music teacher has
pulled an unusual career
He got into the real -estate business
successfully operated for many years by
his wife's family in the Detroit area, then
used his creativity to open an award-win-
ning health care facility in Ann Arbor.
Called University Living, the unique
$12.5 million facility has 61,000 square
feet and the capacity for 75 tenants —
it's half filled now, including several
Jewish residents -.— who pay between
$2,400 $6,200 per month, depending
on the unit size and level of care. Tied to
the University of Michigan, the facility
on South Main Street is one of the few
assisted-living facilities in the country
that is connected to a university.
The concept fits right in with the bur-
geoning assisted-living market in the
United States. About 1 million people, at
the average age of 80, now live in 10,000
assisted-living facilities, with another 2.5
million in regular nursing homes. The
need for these types of facilities is borne
out by the fact that the over-85 age
group is now the fastest growing segment
of the U.S. population.
Dean Solden, 45, of Ann Arbor,
founder and president of University
Living, is a third-generation real estate
developer through marriage, having gone

After graduating from high school in
New Jersey in 1975, Solden and some
friends went to California to try to make
it as rock and roll musicians. He fell in
love with jazz and the group broke up a
few years later. He majored in music at
California State University, then became
a full-time jazz pianist and music teacher,
also touring with nationally known
In 1985, he met and married Sari
Shubow, who grew up in Detroit,
attended Mumford High School and the
University of Michigan, then moved to
California with her former husband.
Now a psychotherapist specializing in
adult attention deficit disorders, Shubow
is the granddaughter of Albert Goldberg,
a Polish immigrant, who was one of the
first Jewish real estate developers in the
Under Westminster Realty, Goldberg
sold and rented homes to many Jewish
people. His son-in-law, David Shubow,
Sari's father, joined the business after
World War II and, with other partners,
developed properties in Detroit, Pontiac
and Westland, including the current
Westland Convalescent Center.
While continuing a strong interest in
ja77, and even operating a music school
in San Francisco, Solden took a "long
look" at the family real estate business,
and commuted to Detroit one week a
month for three years to study and learn
the business. 'Assisted living struck a dif-
