Groundbreaking for Frederick Living expansion.
Frederick Living continuing care retirement community will celebrate the groundbreaking of its Meadows expansion project on June 30 at 10 a.m. Media are invited to photograph the ceremonial event.
Frederick Living Chief Executive Officer John Hendrickson will be joined by representatives from the project’s partners, Barton Partners, RGS Associates, Wagman Construction and Univest Bank and Trust Co.
“We are eager to begin this unique and important expansion to our campus, which puts Frederick Living at the forefront of senior living design trends,” Hendrickson said.
The Meadows is an innovative design based on the “pocket neighborhood” concept that is gaining popularity among architectural pioneers. This design supports a growing number of studies showing that greater social engagement and intellectual stimulation aids mental and emotional wellness, and even translates into longer lifespans.
In “pocket neighborhoods” small groupings of houses around a courtyard or common garden promote a greater sense of community and provide more opportunities for social interaction than the contemporary developments that populate most suburbs.
Phase 1 of The Meadows will feature a 20 cottages , each clustered around and facing a common green space. Spacious front porches bordered by small, private gardens opening onto the common area encourage homeowners to visit and gather with neighbors.
