Common areas in the building core, for use by residents, staff, and guests, include dining rooms, Café and Bistro, multi-purpose room/chapel, library, art studio, exercise area, salon, indoor pool, kitchen, and staff offices. Phase two included 36 assisted living apartments, as well as a 19,160 SF skilled nursing/memory support wing. Construction was completed in November 2010. Project costs are withheld at the request of the Owner.


Thoughtfully designed independent living accommodations for clientele whose needs were not being recognized, while planning for subsequent phases and expanded services.


Units sold out quickly and occupancy remains strong.
