Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012

Columbia Pacific Advisors selected Howard S. Wright, a Balfour Beatty company, as the construction manager for several senior housing projects. The projects span multiple states, including Ohio, Massachusetts, Florida, and Washington, and total $54 million in value across four projects.

Each project will consist of a two-story, 90,000 square foot living and memory care facility that will house 100 beds. The assisted living units are a mix of studios and multi-room suites with kitchens, and the memory/enhanced units are a mix of private and semi-private with shared bath suites.

The specific projects awarded are:

  •     $12 million senior living facility in Mentor, Ohio scheduled to begin this month.
  •     $12 million senior living facility in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts with work scheduled to begin in November 2012.
  •     $12 million senior living facility in Oxford, Florida scheduled to begin in February 2013.
  •     $18 million senior living facility in Seattle, Washington with work to begin in June 2013.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to build communities that address the specific needs of the senior consumer” said Frank Pierson, Vice President of Project Pursuits for Howard S. Wright. “With an estimated 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day, this aging demographic is one senior housing developers can't ignore. At Howard S. Wright, we are optimistic that our relationship with Columbia Pacific Advisors will be a long one that results in many more quality housing facilities for seniors across the United States.”

The architect on those projects is the Lenity Group. Each project will take approximately 12 months to build.
