Byron Health partnered with MKM to imagine a new campus celebrating the lives and unique needs of the residents they serve. Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the 126,000 SF facility consists of five nursing care neighborhoods. Fifty additional assisted living residential apartments are designed to promote social integration and inclusivity. Common amenities include a campus café, wellness center, and multi-use event space, as well as other care, administrative, and support spaces.
Clark maintains an innovative culture in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is committed to creating a place that appeals to tomorrow’s older adults. The new campus will establish engaging environments and public spaces that encourage independent living residents to maintain their health, personality, and passions. Centralized social amenities include a café, wellness gym, restaurant, and other gathering spaces that are positioned and equipped to promote resident choice and prioritize social engagement.
Piper Trail, a 12-acre neighborhood, is under construction in southwest Fort Wayne, Indiana. Walking and biking paths connect 48 single-family homes to shopping, recreation, and surrounding neighborhoods. Future residents will have the option of five different cottage styles, which include one-and-two-bedroom homes with attached garages. Pocket neighborhoods are a growing development model that clusters cottage-scaled homes around a shared common ground within a larger community. This model maintains resident independence while fostering meaningful neighborly relationships.
