DES MOINES, Iowa – The Weitz Company has completed construction on a major expansion project at The Heritage at Brentwood, a senior living community located 20 miles south of Nashville, Tennessee.
This phase of construction, the fourth for The Heritage at Brentwood and final in its Redbud expansion plans, added five new buildings to the 48-acre community overseen by senior living operator Life Care Services and LCS Development. In total, 256,660 square feet of homes and amenities were constructed and connected to the existing building that remained occupied during the 20-month project.
“This was an exciting and challenging project,” said The Weitz Company Executive Vice President Chris Harrison. “We tied into the existing building in four different locations and had to keep it fully operational. This required an extreme amount of coordination and communication with staff and residents alike. Their satisfaction during construction was just as important to us as their joy for these new facilities now that we’ve completed this project.”
More than 100 residences – 97 independent living and 11 assisted living – were built during Phase IV. Additional amenities delivered included a Healthy Life Center with a state-of-the-art indoor pool, expanded fitness center, group exercise suite, day spa with massage room and beauty salon. The dining room was also expanded and now features a display kitchen. Underground parking for the new residences, a 300-plus-seat auditorium, woodworking shop, outdoor courtyard and commons clubhouse were also part of the project scope.
