THW Design provided master planning services for an expansion to a Continuing Care Retirement Community for North Louisiana’s largest healthcare organization, Willis-Knighton Health System. The master plan includes walking trails throughout the campus to connect the existing and planned buildings.
The first phase of the expansion is the addition of an Independent Living building with 123 Rental Apartments. The building’s amenities include formal and casual dining, a full kitchen, and a wellness center with natatorium. The Apartment building will have an outdoor waterfront terrace, gazebos, and outdoor social areas overlooking a 5 acre pond.
The master plan includes plans for second and third phases which will include additional Independent Living Rental Apartments, Assisted Living Residences and Cottages. The Assisted Living building will have 26 residences (studio, one bedroom and two bedrooms) in 38,000 sf and offer dining, fitness and activity rooms. The second phase amenities will also include a large park with a golf course, a bandstand, and croquet lawn.
