Design success briefs
• Now that Rocky Mountain Senior Housing has selected Denver-based OZ Architecture to lead design services, construction for Golden Lodge is slated to begin in the fall. The 89,000-square-foot senior living community will be configured into two facilities – a 65,000 square-foot, four-story assisted living community with 75 studio and one bedroom units, and a 24,000 square-foot, single-story memory care community with 36 studio units. Exterior finishes will be reminiscent of a mountain lodge in keeping with the atmosphere of the foothills of Golden. Finishes will include stone, pitched roofs, mountain log accents and traditional lap siding. Landscaped outdoor areas will be designed to encourage taking walks and offer scenic views of North Table Mountain and the city of Golden.
• Come fall 2018, locals in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood may start doing double takes when passing Belmont Village Senior Living's new community. That's because the planned 160-bed Belmont Village Lincoln Park community very closely will resemble a historic building they have seen before. Before striking a deal and approving the project, the city of Chicago made the developers promise to retain the facades of several buildings within Lincoln Commons, including the Nellie Black building, built in 1932.
