The project also included a 30,000 SF, two-story enhanced living building with 26 apartments, as well as a library and dining area. There was also a 31,000 SF expansion to the Messiah Lifeways skilled nursing building, which added 32 beds, multiple dining areas, spa areas and nursing administration spaces, and also includes underground parking.
Whiting-Turner has created a program for senior living residents to select items such as finishes, paint and light fixtures to customize their homes. For the Messiah Lifeways apartments, residents could select between flooring configurations, paint schemes, fireplace surround choices, cabinet color/style/wood choices, countertop and backsplash choices, fixture selections and different appliance choices.
