Hebrew Senior Life

Dedham, MA

Project

Leggat McCall Properties acted as project manager for the permitting, design and construction of this new property in Dedham, MA for Hebrew Senior Life. Designed collaboratively by Perkins Eastman and Chan Krieger, Hebrew Senior Life's new senior care community creates an intergenerational campus with a variety of housing options for the elderly. The new campus is home to approximately 750 adults. The site also provides a setting for 450 students in the Rashi School and ancillary play and athletic fields. The living accommodations include 50 cottages, 24 villa apartments, 182 apartments, 51 traditional assisted living apartments, 40 memory support rooms, and a 268-resident healthcare center with 220 long term care residents and 48 sub-acute patients. With sustainable design features equivalent to LEED certification, the multigenerational campus takes an environmentally responsible approach. Newly created open space was used to cover the community's parking under a green roof and provide a below-grade pedestrian connection. Through xeriscaping (landscaping which reduces the need for irrigation) and a rainwater collection/cistern system no ground water is used for irrigation.
