The latest project is Brightview Avondell, a modestly sized assisted and independent senior living facility nestled atop a wooded hillside in rural Harford County, Maryland.

Completed in two phases, the market-rate senior community hosts a mixture of living units. The first phase included 24 assisted living apartments and 98 independent living apartments. The second phase added independent living apartments, over 5,000 sf of community amenity spaces, and a 4,000 sf swimming pool for water aerobics and lap swimming.

While most senior housing developments separate assisted and independent living residents, a particular goal of the client was to encourage interaction between the two groups. To create a cohesive and warm community, beyond both forms of living at Avondell, we constructed shared amenity spaces including a large formal dining room, bar and billiards space, living room and library, theater, beauty salon and spa, pool, fitness room and a café.

Brightview Avondell meets the definition of a high density development according to the USGBC LEED for Homes guideline, with over 15 dwelling units per acre of buildable land. An existing pond on the property was retained and preserved for the benefit of the environment and the community.
