Senior Learning Community at Purchase College
Purchase, New York
Hord Coplan Macht planned and is designing a new Senior Learning Community on the campus of Purchase College, State University of New York. In addition to planning of the 40 acre site, Hord Coplan Macht is designing a full continuing care retirement community including health and wellness, influence on the landscape design, multiple amenity spaces, as well as a new “Innovation Center” that will act as the link between the college and the senior learning community.
The goal is to provide a facility in which the residents are actively engaged in many aspects of the college. Residents will be able to participate in activities of the renowned Performing Arts Center and Neuberger Museum of Art. The College also anticipates residents participating in academic activities and utilizing the other facilities of the college, including its athletic facilities, walking paths and the extensive campus grounds. The link between the College and senior population will provide support to the younger students in the form of mentoring, tutoring, guest lecturing, and other activities.
