Canton, MA – Brightview Senior Living Community, located at 125 Turnpike Street in Canton, is on schedule for a summer 2016 completion. The community is situated 15 miles from Boston and lies at the foot of Great Blue Hill, located within the Blue Hills Preservation.
PROCON of Manchester, N.H., was selected as the designer and construction manager for the $30 million project.
Construction began in December 2014 on the 167,000sf community occupying 29 acres. The current status ranges from finishes in the first area to the hanging of drywall in the third area.
Each Brightview community is unique in its architecture and layout. The Canton community was designed to echo the style of New England’s historical Victorian mansions — with a mansard roof, porches, turrets, and dormer windows with top quality construction and high-end finishes.
Plans call for 160 residential units, including 95 independent living apartments, 40 dedicated apartments for assisted living, and 25 for Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Brightview communities also offer a specialized program and environment for dementia care known as Wellspring Village, designed to enhance the lives of those living with memory limitations.
The project was developed by The Shelter Group, of a firm located in Baltimore, Md. This is the seventh collaboration between PROCON and The Shelter Group on Brightview senior housing in Massachusetts since 2012.
Brightview Canton is all-inclusive living designed for the unique needs of the older adult population. The community will provide housekeeping, dining, transportation, maintenance and chef-prepared meals. Prospective residents will have the option to choose from a variety of spacious, comfortable and easy-to-manage apartment styles and floor plans. Among the convenient state-of-the-art amenities are a wellness/fitness center, movie theater, beauty/barber shop, café, pub library/media room, elegant dining rooms and gathering spaces for seniors to enjoy. A unique feature to the Canton location is a quarter-mile walking path that loops through the surrounding wetland and grassland areas.
The project manager stated, “It’s strong exterior Victorian influences required a meticulous attention to detail and a high level of coordination. It has been a rewarding process to see the whole thing come together so well.”
