Farmington, CT – A recent groundbreaking ceremony kicked off the start of construction for The Chelsea at Washington Township, an assisted living and memory care community in Washington Township, Bergen County, N.J.
KBE Building Corporation of Farmington has been working with the owner, Capitol Seniors Housing, Washington, D.C., and architect Meyer Design, Ardmore, Pa., on the preconstruction planning of the project.
When completed, the 76,700sf, 2‐story community will offer 85 residential units for adults requiring assisted living and memory care levels of assistance. It will feature a variety of one- and two-bedroom luxury residences. The community’s amenities will include a bistro, sports bar, theater, multi‐purpose room, club room, private dining room, and courtyards designed specifically for both assisted living and memory care residents.
The Chelsea at Washington Township is located on historic Pascack Road, just steps from the township’s Schlegel Lake, Senior Park, and community center. It is scheduled to open in early 2023.
“One of the most important actions we’ve taken as a team is to really dive into this project at the earliest stages of planning and design,” says KBE principal, Jim Culkin, who is overseeing the construction of The Chelsea project. “The collaboration with the design team at Meyer Design and the management team at Capitol Seniors Housing has been essential to bringing us to this exciting moment, when shovel hits dirt and all the drawings and decisions become reality.”
