The Chandler City Council approved the re-zoning for the future location of a memory care facility in Chandler near Arizona Avenue and Queen Creek Road.
A 36,377 square-foot single-story care facility, Parkland Memory Care will be built on the 4.5 acre site along with two medical office buildings.
Oregon-based Lenity Architecture designed the building, along with landscape architecture provided by Phillip R. Ryan (Ryan & Associates) who has completed award winning projects in Chandler.
The building and site was designed for demands and needs of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
Amenities will include 24 hour nursing care, attractively landscaped grounds, three secured interior courtyards, activity rooms, an in-house salon, and walking paths.
The architecture is Tuscan ranch, with elements of stone, large beam trellis features, concrete tiled roof, and decorative lighting. The grounds will be extensively landscaped, including two small citrus groves that will be used for activities and gatherings and a dramatic date palm lined entry on both Appleby and Arizona Avenue.
The property is being developed by Raymond Poe, and Neal Salmen, of Medical Development Partners based in Scottsdale AZ. JF Construction Company is scheduled to start construction summer 2016.
Upon completion in 2017, Parkland Memory Care will be operated by Oregon-based Seasons Management Group.
