Senior Living

    Holland Home Breton Ridge

    This extension of Holland Home’s Breton Terrace campus is the latest addition to their senior independent living community. It includes a prestigious 7-story, 303,000 SF facility constructed in two phases. Phase I includes the construction of 123 resident condominiums, underground parking, and campus community space. With the construction of Phase II, an additional wing provides 149,000 SF and 92 resident condominiums. Community spaces include a chapel, exercise room, dining facility, and a retail store where light refreshments, such as ice cream or a cup of cappuccino can be enjoyed. There is also a billiards room and a library.

    Extensive studies were conducted to determine the extent of affordable amenities that could be supported by the sales and revenue of the individual living units. Through value engineering and pricing, additional living units were designed as walkouts, lower level parking was designed under only two of the three building wings, and the balance of the parking requirements were located adjacent to the facility and supplemented by enclosed garages constructed at-grade.
