CHASKA, Minn. (Sept. 29, 2017) ─ Intergenerational Living & Health Care, Inc. (ILHC), a nonprofit organization pioneering interactive programming to bring children and seniors together, will gather with local chamber of commerce leaders and members, development and design partners, and neighboring Stillwater residents on Friday, Oct. 6 to celebrate the groundbreaking of The Lakes at Stillwater.
“This new community will provide exceptional living and health services and give residents, guests and team members a sense of warmth and feeling of being at home,” said Elaine Burton, ILHC Board President. “We are thrilled to see our vision of a truly intergenerational community become a reality, benefitting the Stillwater area and Twin Cities as a destination for all ages.”
Based in Chaska, ILHC is starting construction this fall on phase one, The Lodge, a 139-unit independent, assisted living and memory care community. Phase two, Birchwood Landing, will include 30 independent living single story two-bedroom villas. Sandhill Shores, the third phase of the project, will have 70 one and two bedroom senior living apartments for ages 55+.
As part of the 50-acre campus at 107 Bridgewater Way, the centrally located Lodge will frame south-facing views towards Long Lake. The landscape plan will feature colorful and therapeutic plants, trees, gardens and other landscape elements to stimulate the senses and offer spaces for strolling, remembrance, relaxing, activities and gathering.
Amenities include multiple dining venues and an open-concept kitchen, intergenerational learning program, state-of-the-art memory care community, wellbeing center, creative arts, salon spa, fireside bar lounge, outdoor amphitheater, reflections room, movie theatre, and Rock Steady Boxing affiliate program open to residents and non-residents diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
