The Caleo Bay Alzheimer’s Special Care Center is nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains providing a tranquil desert setting for patients and visiting loved ones. This incredible site location provides easy access to medical care, conveniences and scenic beauty which made a complex approval process all worth while.
Lenity Architecture provided full architectural services from land use and permitting to Certificate of Occupancy for Caleo Bay’s 33,000 SF, 66 bed community. Located between an active community and commercial use property, Caleo Bay was deemed a transition use property necessitating approvals from both an HOA and BOA. In addition to facilitating the approval process from the neighboring owner’s associations, Lenity Architecture also spearheaded the city’s detailed approval process.
For Caleo Bay and every one of Lenity Architecture’s senior living projects, we work closely with the client to ensure the local jurisdictions understand resident needs. We believe that successful projects are the result of designing a building and site plan with the needs of the residents as the main focus.
Through close collaboration with neighboring communities and local jurisdictions, Lenity Architecture was able to turn the Caleo Bay project into a meaningful opportunity for the entire community to support quality of life for La Quinta’s memory care residents.
The Copper Canyon Alzheimer’s Special Care Center is a 33,000 SF building featuring 66 beds with private and shared rooms. Lenity Architecture provided full architectural services from land use to Certificate of Occupancy.
To preserve the desert’s beauty for generations to come, there is a slope easement for all natural topography in Tuscon. The site design for Copper Canyon Alzheimer’s Special Care Center required careful planning to ensure the local jurisdiction’s guidelines were met–and of equal importance–that Lenity Architecture proved to be a good steward of Tuscon’s precious natural resources. In a short walk around the Copper Canyon community, it’s evident that the topography and native plant and animal life has been successfully preserved and is thriving on every square foot of the property.
Residents enjoy the tranquility of Copper Canyon’s natural setting on the rear patio that extends the full length of the building. Views of the mountains and desert hills frame Tuscon’s awe-inspiring sunsets and can be seen from the terrace or the large windows of the dining room.
Resident well-being is at the very heart of Copper Canyon’s design. By creating an extension of home for seniors that honors the individuals and the land, Copper Canyon Alzheimer’s Special Care Center and its caring staff provide much more than just a place to live–it is a comforting embrace at the close of a long and cherished day.
The Rock Creek Alzheimer’s Special Care Center in Surprise, AZ is a 33,000 SF building featuring 66 beds with private and shared rooms. Lenity Architecture provided full architectural services from land use to Certificate of Occupancy. The Rock Creek community was the first project in a 26.5 acre PUD for senior housing. Lenity Architecture set the standard for the design and character of the buildings to follow.
Our client and partner in this project has an in-depth understanding of the needs of residents in an Alzheimer’s and Special Care Facility. Together, we work to ensure residents are comfortable and most importantly, safe, wherever they are–be it in or outside of the building.
The seniors that live in our buildings are an extension of the Lenity Architecture family and every detail is accounted for to ensure their quality of life is preserved to the fullest extent possible.
We look at open living spaces–such as the interior courtyard at Rock Creek Alzheimer’s Special Care Center–as opportunities to find laughter, support and companionship. The intention that is built into each community’s design, coupled with genuinely caring staff, creates a warm extension of home and provides family members reassurance that their loved ones are in good hands.
