Holland Construction has started construction on senior living development Keystone Place at Richland Creek, at the northwest corner of Frank Scott Parkway and Fountain Lakes Drive in O’Fallon, Illinois. O’Fallon is in the St. Louis market.
The total project cost of the development is $39 million. Once completed, the new facility will offer independent living, assisted living and memory care services all in one location.
The development is being constructed in front of Parkway Lakeside Apartments, which Holland also constructed several years ago. Lead Project Manager for Holland, Rob Ruehl, said this is a unique build for the team because of the comprehensive nature of the development.
“This project is unique because of the different uses within the building however we approach it the same way and our execution remains the same. Having the experience and the background of building all three types of facilities, with different care levels, has proven very helpful,” said Ruehl. “It’s an advantage because we understand the ‘why’ for why the client designed things a certain way. Because of that background, we’re able to ensure the structure is going to meet their intended use for the building.”
The four-story building will consist of 149 apartments including 64 independent living, 66 assisted living, and 19 memory care, plus one guest suite. The building will encompass almost 170,000 gross square feet and feature a U-shape design with the front entrance facing Fountain Lakes Drive. The five-acre development will also feature a memory garden and a courtyard.
