McKnight Place Assisted Living



The client challenged Lawrence Group to design a three-story addition adjacent to an existing one-story building on a campus with a strong traditional aesthetic, developed by the owner, over the last 40 years. This addition increased the footprint of the campus to over one million square feet.


Lawrence Group incorporated contemporary assisted living concept and design into a new building that meshed the traditional architecture and affluent living with modern senior living accommodations and amenities. The project encompasses 102,000 square feet with 90 assisted living units, and the renovated existing one-story 72,000-square-foot building houses 27 memory care units and 18 skilled nursing, allowing for all levels of care on the campus.

The Project has been featured in St. Louis Construction News and Review and the St. Louis Business Journal.
