Assisted Living Facility Undergoing Updates, Ill.

Harry Ekstam Assisted Living, located in Batavia, Ill., is currently undergoing updates and is expected to be complete in early fall of this year.

Currently, there are three wings that make up the 36,000 square-foot community, which is part of the Holmstad campus, a Covenant Retirement Community.

The dining room was relocated to the second floor in one wing to make room for a new entrance and vestibule. The dining rooms in the other two wings will be updated along with the interior decoration of all common areas.

J. Duffy Co. is in charge of the renovation of common spaces and BLDD Architects is handling the design.

Senior Living Community Underway in Madison, Ala.

Residents will be able to enjoy gourmet farm-to-table food, fine wine storage, a full-service salon, a greenhouse, gardening opportunities, private kitchens, animal therapy, walking trails and a tavern to enjoy sports games. There will also be daily classes offered to residents ranging from meditation and gentle yoga to aerobics and circuit training.

Ground Broken Ahead of Schedule on $44 Million Senior Community

Masonic Homes of Kentucky has broken ground earlier than expected on The Meadow, a new area in the active senior living community of Miralea in Louisville, Ky. The Meadows will add 122 apartment-style homes to the already-established community.

Meadow residents will be able to utilize Miralea facilities as well as amenities in the new building, which includes a movie theater, a spa and beauty salon, an art studio and an art gallery. The community will be for residents age 62 and older and will also offer life care.

The Meadow was originally slated to open in mid-2018, but with the early start, it is possible the community could open sooner than previously anticipated.

The project is being handled by Greystone, AG Architecture, QK4 and Reese Design Collaborative.
