Overview

Challenge

SSM turned to Lawrence Group for help in facilitating a new senior housing project adjacent to their St. Mary’s campus. The redevelopment of this existing one-acre site includes a new park as well as a new 91,000-square-foot, 87-bed assisted living and memory care facility. The new facility required a development team, investors, design and construction expertise, and planning. The extremely tight site posed particular challenges for design and constructability.

Solution

Lawrence Group tapped our network to assist in assembling a team of real estate and investment professionals to help SSM bring the project to life. Allegro joined the team as the facility operator and development lead and are excited to be able to open their first community in St. Louis.

Tight site constraints were navigated through extensive pre-construction planning and innovative design solutions with considerations taken for MSD stormwater detention and parking requirements. The project is scheduled for completion in fall of 2018. The resulting community will contain many superior amenities and finishes for the senior housing market.
