Capitol Seniors Housing to Build Clubhouse, Residences at Newly Acquired Community


Capitol Seniors Housing is poised to begin construction this summer on a clubhouse and seven new residential buildings with 119 homes at Siena, an active living community in Cinnaminson Township, New Jersey. Capitol Seniors Housing recently acquired the 15-acre property, which consists of five buildings with a total of 85 occupied residences.

Existing and new homes at Siena are all two-bedroom models that ranging from more than 1,110 square feet to more than 1,870 square feet. The new homes will have large floorplans, laundry rooms and other new amenities. The residences also will have contemporary designs and finishes such as granite countertops, plank flooring, stainless appliances and custom cabinetry.

As planned, the new clubhouse will have a fitness center, yoga studio, great room, card room, new patio areas, new landscaping and new signage. Cove Property Management will manage the community.


Construction crews are expected to start work on the new clubhouse and residences this summer, and wrap up as early as next year.

Weitz Company Tops Out LCS CCRC in Tennessee

Workers with the Weitz Company on June 14 placed one final commemorative beam to top out new buildings at The Heritage at Brentwood, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) operated by Life Care Services.

As planned, the expansion will add 97 independent living apartment-style homes, 11 assisted living residences, more space in the dining room, a healthy life center with a heated indoor pool, expanded fitness rooms, a new salon and a new auditorium with seating for more than 300 people. In total, five new buildings are being added to the existing community, and this is the project’s fourth development phase. The Heritage at Brentwood was originally built in 2008.

Weitz is a joint venture partner on this expansion phase along with Hannah Constructors, a local construction firm. LCS Development is also overseeing the project’s development.

If all goes according to plan, the project will finish in April, 2019.
