Arlington, MA – Construction of Brightview Arlington, a new senior living community located on Symmes Road in Arlington is nearing completion. The $13.8 million project is being developed by Shelter Development of Baltimore, MD and will be operated by Brightview Senior Living. JSA Inc, of Portsmouth, N.H. was the design architect and PROCON of Manchester, NH is the architect of record and construction manager for the Arlington community, which will be the sixth Brightview community in Massachusetts.
“We have completed the interior finishes on the top floor and we expect the second and third floor interiors to be completed by early February,” according to the project manager. “We are wrapping up the exterior skin of the building, the sidewalks are in and the finished pavement is 90% complete.”
Brightview Arlington will have 90 units including 60 apartments for assisted living and 30 apartments for Alzheimer’s and dementia care. The apartments, which are all under one roof, will offer the residents a variety of floor plans and care options. Screened porches off the public areas will provide residents with beautiful views of the surrounding scenery.
The four-story, 68,691sf senior living community will offer a vibrant social environment where housekeeping, dining, transportation, and maintenance are provided by a caring staff. Plans call for the community to have an elegant dining room, a private dining room, a café, wellness/fitness center, activities room, beauty/barber salon, library/media room and outdoor patios.
The building’s exterior will feature cement siding and a stone façade. Covered parking for 37 vehicles will be available beneath the building with elevator access for residents and a natural stone patio and decorative pergolas will enhance the exterior courtyard.
