Congress Bldg. Corp. CM – Designed by TAT
Ipswich, MA – Congress Building Corp., based in Peabody, and LCB Senior Living, LLC of Norwood, announced the completion of The Residence at Riverbend, a state-of-the-art senior housing community located at 149 County Street in Ipswich.
Congress Building provided construction management services for the 73,674sf community which features 53 studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments for traditional assisted living and independent living, and 22 studio and shared apartments in a memory care wing for residents with early Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments.
Owned and operated by LCB Senior Living, and designed by The Architectural Team of Chelsea, The Residence at Riverbend opened its doors on December 2. The independent and assisted living apartments feature private living space with efficiency kitchens. Residents enjoy three meals daily served in a restaurant-style dining room, 24-hour security, as well as access to a variety of other bright and spacious common areas including activities spaces, computer rooms, and a library.
The Residence is situated on a 15-acre site that stretches from County Road to the Ipswich River. Congress and LCB have donated more than two acres of riverfront land to the Ipswich River Watershed Association. As part of this plan, an access road was constructed for public use for direct access to the Ipswich River, and additional open space land has been placed in a permanent conservation restriction. The road and three-space parking area will be open seasonally for members of the community to take canoes or kayaks out on the Ipswich River.
