RICHMOND, Va. — LifeSpire has broken ground on a $64 million expansion at Lakewood, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Virginia.
The project is part of the community’s 40th anniversary celebrations, and will take place on the West End campus of the property.
The expansion includes the four-story Lakeview Clubhouse, including a new community entrance, 44 apartments, underground parking, walking paths, gardens, fire pits and a waterfall feature. The first floor will include a fitness center, restaurant, lounge, auditorium, pool, spa, convenience store, coffee shop, barber shop, library, billiards room, art studio and woodworking shop.
In addition, the project includes two new buildings of the community’s Woodside Hybrid Homes, adding common areas and 20 more units.
THW Design will provide architecture services and WM Jordan is general contractor for the project. Construction slated for completion by late 2019 or early 2020. No residents will be displaced during this period.
