The two-level commons building includes a swimming pool; auditorium; spa; multiple dining rooms; and numerous other amenities with high-end finishes throughout. The three-level health center building contains 44 memory care and skilled nursing rooms; support areas; laundry; and maintenance. The independent living buildings contain 195 apartments, each detailed with their own custom resident selections and underbuilding parking. In addition, there are 14 detached townhome residences in seven separate buildings. Each townhome residence has its own attached double garage.

Weitz served as the construction manager on the project and also provided supply chain purchasing services for steel, windows, appliances, cabinets and specialty materials used during construction.

“We are very pleased with the Trillium Woods project and want to thank all of the team members for their outstanding efforts. The construction of the community was made possible through hundreds of individuals utilizing their unique talents to create a beautiful home for the residents of Trillium Woods. The happiness and excitement displayed by the community’s residents at the grand opening celebration was outstanding,” said Dave Rahe, senior project manager for The Weitz Company. “Congratulations to Life Care Services on the opening of their latest Life Plan Community.”
