Projects

Penick Village

Southern Pines, NC

Renovations and additions to the existing CCRC campus were needed to provide new skilled care, assisted living and rehabilitation small houses, an increased number of independent living units, a new wellness center, and appropriately sized support services. The master plan lays out a multi-phase plan to add new independent living hybrid homes and small houses for skilled care, short-term rehab and assisted living. Cosmetic upgrades to the older buildings will be undertaken initially to improve the quality of life for existing residents until later phases of replacement housing are implemented.

Brandermill Woods

Midlothian, VA

This project involved the expansion and partial renovation of the CCRC campus within its current boundaries. The expansion of the independent living apartments and a wellness center, new assisted living specifically for memory care, and converting the current memory care into assisted living were all specifically requested. The final master plan detailed multi-phased clubhouse dining expansion and update, and skilled care improvements including a dedicated short-term rehab neighborhood addition.

Kendal at Granville

Granville, OH

Master planning for Phase II expansion and the ultimate built-out of the 87 acre site for this CCRC focused on three major additions: 20 skilled care and 6 assisted living rooms, 24 apartments and a multi-purpose room. The final solution envisioned skilled care households with the existing skilled care converted to assisted living. The master plan also envisions a combination of patio homes and higher density hybrid homes for future campus development.Master planning for Phase II expansion and the ultimate built-out of the 87 acre site for this CCRC focused on three major additions: 20 skilled care and 6 assisted living rooms, 24 apartments and a multi-purpose room.

Presbyterian Homes, The Moorings

Arlington Heights, IL

Master planning for Presbyterian Homes involved evaluation of services and existing infrastructure at several campuses located in and around Chicago. The Moorings at Arlington Heights is the first campus for implementation.  Strategic planning for this campus focused on rightsizing the property by optimizing the ratios between the levels of care and product offerings. The result is a new assisted living residence, an assisted living memory care residence and a new chapel and commons spaces.  Plans for future phases encompass additional apartments and duplex cottages.Master planning for Presbyterian Homes involved evaluation of services and existing infrastructure at several campuses located in and around Chicago.

Greencroft Communities

Goshen, IN

Campus planning for five CCRCs in Indiana and one in Ohio provided a forum for review of the existing properties and infrastructure and development of individual master plans that align with Greencroft’s long-term strategic vision. The design solutions for the six communities, ranging from 38 to 1,150 residents, encompass skilled care, assisted living, memory care, independent living options, commons spaces, and unique opportunities such as a seniors’ outdoor adventure camp, senior oriented RV park and a maple-syrup production facility. We developed a new carriage-home style of hybrid home which provides an affordable option for a ground floor parking garage.

The Langford at College Station

College Station, TX

Recognizing market size, a nearby sister community and the challenges of a greenfield development in today’s marketplace, MRC opted for a first phase smaller CCRC / Life Plan Community enhanced with existing resources in the surrounding community. Phase 1 includes independent living condo-style flats with under building parking and interior links to the clubhouse. The clubhouse also connects to assisted living suites and a memory care household. Skilled nursing care and short-term rehabilitation will be provided through a partnership with the sister community.

The Apartment Community of Our Lady of the Snows

Belleville, IL

The master plan expands the 1960s-era community through a series of new and repositioned structures. The entrance road will be adjusted for a more direct path to the new campus front door leading into a new lobby, bistro, marketing suite and multipurpose room. Campus additions include an apartment building, duplex and over/under four-plex cottage neighborhood and townhomes creating a pocket neighborhood and courtyard. Renovations will create an additional dining venue, fitness center, spa and multi-purpose spaces. Assisted living will be expanded to include memory support residences and skilled nursing renovations will create separate neighborhoods.

Village on the Isle

Venice, Florida

This community is comprised of several distinct and separate buildings that have, to various degrees, outlived their marketability. The master plan addressed these issues in a multi-phased, financially sensitive manner. The first phase of the plan includes replacement skilled nursing, new apartment building over parking, incremental unit renovations, conversion of an existing floor into dedicated memory care and creating a new grand entry. Later phases include a new community center, additional apartment buildings and site improvements.
