PACIFIC PLACE
Webster Groves, Missouri

In 1986 David Sanders initiated the development of Pacific Place, the first senior housing project to be developed and managed by HPD. Pacific Place is an excellent example of a smaller-scale, mixed-use elderly living development. Its success is largely a result of its prime location in a neighborhood retail and business district. A grocery store, university, repertory theatre, YMCA, pharmacy, bank, coffee house, and several restaurants are all within walking distance.

The 35-unit retirement facility offers one and two bedroom apartments, 625 to 938 square feet in size. The spacious floor plans, short corridors and intimate garden areas emphasize the residential atmosphere. A restaurant, located in the front of the building (and open to the public), provides optional meals for the residents.

In 1997, HPD designed and constructed two cottages on a small piece of property across the parking lot from the existing building. This "infill" project capitalized on the facility's land resources, caused a very low increase in operating expenses, met a market need for larger private units with patios, and expanded the monthly revenue. The cottage units were immediately occupied. These units offer larger rooms, bay windows, and a private patio for each unit.

In 1999, Pacific Place completed an addition on the north side of the property, adding 8 one and two bedroom apartments to the existing Pacific Place building. On the first floor, 3,000 square feet of retail/office space was also added.


In 2008, an adjacent retail property was purchased and now houses 4 retail tenants: a bookstore, art gallery, shaved ice shop and a beauty products shop.


ORCHARD (ORCHARD HOUSE)
Webster Groves, Missouri

Orchard House is uniquely situated within 1-1/2 blocks of a university, a regional theatre, an established shopping and restaurant district, bus transportation, and in a community with a large percentage of senior residents. Orchard House provides the independent elderly with immediate access to community services, in a neighborhood setting. The community consists of 175 one and two-bedroom apartments, gardens and 25,000 square feet of retail and office space.

The increased problems of assembling this highly desirable property, and the efforts required for rezoning the land, were well worth the added time and expense in order to create such an exciting and active lifestyle for the elderly.

By integrating additional retail space on the first two floors, the residents benefit from proximity to services as they grow older and drive less frequently. The retirement center also benefits from the new vitality, increased retail sales, and sales tax revenue. The site also addresses previous parking and traffic deficiencies, providing the city with additional benefits as well.

David Sanders was involved in Orchard House as an owner and developer.

ADAMS PLACE
Kirkwood, Missouri

HPD Cambridge, Inc. had a vision to create a new kind of congregate retirement community for active, independent older adults. The goal was to design a small scale, mixed-use facility, located in the heart of a neighborhood where many local retired residents wished to stay. This vision became a reality when Adams Place opened in November, 1991, in Kirkwood, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis.

Adams Place consists of 44 apartments specially designed for the present and future needs of older adults. The mixed-use development also contains 15,000 square feet of retail space and services, including a restaurant that is open to the public and which serves as the dining facility for Adams Place residents. This concept offers residents the convenience of shops and services that are literally at their doorstep. The facility bears little of the burden associated with providing these amenities, and the community is able to share in the support of the Adams Place residents. The building design separates the retail and residential areas to insure resident security and privacy.

The exclusive apartments are designed to create a residential atmosphere. A private parlor, club room, public and private balconies, card room, library and activity center are all available for caused a very low increase in operating expenses, met a market need for larger private units with patios, and expanded the monthly revenue. The cottage units were immediately occupied. These units offer larger rooms, bay windows, and a private patio for each unit.

 

BISHOP MORRIS PLACE-NORTHWEST
Portland, Oregon

Bishop Morris Place - Northwest is a 46-unit congregate living facility in northwest Portland, Oregon. The congregate project is strategically located one block away from the Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital medical community and serves as part of Legacy Health System's Continuum of Care for Seniors.

The project is well integrated into the Northwest Portland neighborhood of shops, restaurants, banks, and other retail services along 23rd Street. It is surrounded by attractive single family homes, and residents are able to walk to a broad range of services, entertainment and shopping opportunities within 3-4 blocks of the building.

HPD provided full project services to Legacy Health System, including market analysis, development services (e.g., financial feasibility, zoning requirements, leasing and operational planning) and planning/design. Architectural services were provided by Mahlum & Nordfors Smith Gordon, with HPD providing programming and schematic design and design development as a service provider. Bishop Morris Place opened in March, 1999.


ASSISI VILLAGE AT STONEHILL
Dubuque, Iowa

Stonehill Care Center's site includes an adult center and nursing facility on 12.6 acres. HPD was approached to perform a market analysis and assess financial feasibility of new service opportunities and uses.

A renovation study detailed necessary building repairs such as brick and window repair and a modified kitchen area. The proposed phases of work included repairs, renovation, and remodeling. HPD recommended relocation of existing activity units and introduction/addition of new service units. Plans also addressed such needs as the addition of a second building entry, an elevator, and open spaces.

Master planning of the site identified potential conceptual uses of the existing land base. HPD provided full project assistance, including market analysis, development services (e.g., financial feasibility, zoning requirements, and operational planning) and planning/design. HPD recommended that the underutilized areas of the Stonehill campus be transformed to add to its continuum of services and contribute to its financial earnings.

As part of the master plan, a 29-unit assisted living facility, a 46-unit congregate living facility, along with 21senior cottages were planned to add to the existing structures. The congregate building and five of the cottages have been built. Assisi Village opened in September, 1999. The proposed assisted living facility will create a physical connection between the existing Stonehill Care Center and Adult Center buildings. This connection utilizes existing staff and equipment conveniently and efficiently. The congregate living and cottage program allows Stonehill to appeal to a broader range of the senior market in the Dubuque and Tri-State area. The program encourages seniors to maintain an independent lifestyle in a non-institutional setting.

 

GENEVA PLACE ON THE FOX RIVER
Geneva, Illinois

Geneva was selected for the development of Geneva Place because of its urban, yet uniquely casual suburban riverfront community. Geneva Place overlooks the Fox River at the corner of Bennett and State Street. The location allows walking access to a drug store, banks, churches of many denominations, a choice of well-known local restaurants, delis, diners, parks, bookstores, gift stores, coffee and ice cream shops, galleries, and other community services in the Third Street Shopping District. Seniors can have an exciting independent life style without relying on the use of a private vehicle in this fabulous location.

Geneva Place is four stories, with a public restaurant and retail space on the first floor. There are fifty-three one and two bedroom apartments designed for seniors. Residents are able to participate in an optional meal program, at reduced prices, in the Geneva Place restaurant.

The project is well integrated into the downtown Geneva shopping district which includes a variety of shops, restaurants, banks, and other retail services. Residents can walk to a broad range of services, entertainment, and shopping opportunities within 3-4 blocks of the building.
