Edenwald Renovations and Expansion

Edenwald Senior Living
Towson, Maryland

Edenwald is a large retirement community located on an urban site adjacent to the Towson Town Center on the south and Goucher College to the north. The multi-phase repositioning/expansion of the campus was undertaken to address community needs and appeal to potential future residents.

Phase One of the project includes renovations and additions to the existing, two-story healthcare center, creating a roughly 107,000 square foot new facility. Through renovations, two small additions, and eight different small phases of construction work, the health center project provides a 24-bed Assisted Living/Dementia Care wing and a 24-bed Comprehensive Care Dementia Wing on Floor One and a separate 48-bed Comprehensive Care Wing on Floor Two.

Phase Two of the project is a twelve-story, 254,000 square foot mixed-use addition to the existing 18 story tower. The new addition features 54 independent living apartments on the top six floors. The lower floors include 32 assisted living apartments and support spaces, wellness center, indoor pool, locker rooms, rooftop putting green and walking track, and 120 space parking garage.

The independent living residences in the new addition feature open floor plans, generous natural light, (with multiple exposures in some cases), and large exterior terraces in a mix of different unit types. The architecture of the new buildings picks up and expands on the language of the existing structures.

A focus of the new building was the use of sustainable materials and practices. The sunscreens, energy efficient-exterior envelope, planted green roof, and high-efficiency mechanical systems all contribute to the sustainability.

A third phase of the project included a large auditorium with stage,  renovations to the existing dining room, cafe/pub, and kitchen as well as several other resident amenity spaces.

The projects resulted from an extensive master planning exercise with the community leaders and other stakeholders. Through multiple small construction phases, the projects were able to proceed while the community maintained operations and minimized disruptions to resident life.

The project was included in the Environments for Aging Design Showcase.

The project was planned and managed by Drew Kepley while a Principal at SFCS Inc., Architect of Record.
