Bethesda Gardens

Senior Living Facility

The senior living facility addition houses 43 apartment units including 31 one-bedroom apartments and 12 two-bedroom apartments. The 56,000 SF addition consisted of a new four-story apartment building and 19 underground parking spaces. The facility includes a lounge/ activity area, sundeck, residential storage at each level and a walkway linking to the existing facility at levels two, three and four.

The biggest challenge of this project was the tight site. The project, located next to existing buildings and closely bordered by Kirkwood Road, left little extra room for storage of construction materials. Close attention was devoted to material procurement and deliveries to maintain a minimal requirement for onsite storage of materials. Offsite parking was also being utilized to make more room on the site.
