Two Greystone clients are filling what the DDC Journal calls “Large, Unmet Demand,” and Greystone Senior Vice President Dave McDowell talked to the publication about these clients and their recent projects.

East Ridge at Cutler Bay is a SantaFe Senior Living-sponsored community in Cutler Bay, Fla., just south of Miami. East Ridge has just opened a newly repositioned health center. Here’s what Dave McDowell told DDC Journal about the project:

“The East Ridge community has been a longstanding quality provider of independent lifestyle and healthcare support for seniors. Our client, SantaFe Senior Living, found themselves with an outdated nursing home and healthcare center. To avoid this affecting their ability to deliver services consistent with their mission and core values, they elected to reposition and expand these healthcare components.”

The Terraces of Boise is a project sponsored by American Baptist Homes of the West. A new continuing care campus, it welcomed its first-ever residents in 2015. Here’s what Dave McDowell told DDC Journal about the project:

“What’s really unique about this community is the skilled care center. Designed by AG Architecture, it is the first one in Idaho incorporating a household model. There are three buildings, with each one providing services to a small group of residents. While this approach has become very popular across the country, this is the first one in Idaho embraced by the state Department of Health. Overall, this community brings innovation and a unique service setting to the seniors in this market.”
