Holland Construction Services has begun construction on Keystone Place at Magnolia Commons, a new senior living community in Glen Carbon.
The 180,000-square-foot project will be located at 245 Magnolia Ave., just off Illinois Route 157 in an area known for its medical, senior living, and professional service facilities.
“We are excited to offer a new rental housing option for adults seeking a safe, secure, maintenance-free, service-rich lifestyle,” said Brent Kingen, chief operating officer for Keystone Senior Management Services. “Keystone Place at Magnolia Commons’ ultra-inclusive service package will provide meals, housekeeping, transportation, and life enrichment opportunities that will allow residents to engage, explore and maximize their personal wellness.”
As a Rental Continuing Care Senior Living Community, the operation will provide independent living, assisted living and memory care apartments, accommodations and services, he said. The four-story building will feature 79 independent living units, 43 assisted care units and 20 memory care units. Amenities will include a full kitchen and dining room, movie theater, salon, bistro and fitness center.
The development is the second Keystone Senior Living facility Holland has built. Last year, Holland completed Keystone Place at Richland Creek in O’Fallon, Ill.
“Having the past experience of building a facility like this, which includes three different types of care levels, is very helpful on this project,” said Holland Senior Project Manager Tim Simon. “It’s an advantage because we understand the ‘why’ for why the client designed things a certain way. We understand their goals from a residential amenities standpoint and we’re able to ensure the building will provide a quality living environment for each resident, regardless of their needs.”
The architect on this project is Gori and Associates, based in Minneapolis, Minn.
The project is expected to be completed in Spring 2023.
