Projects: Seniors Living
Whitemud Carrington Lifestyle Options
Carrington Lifestyle Options (CLO) has been providing quality housing in Edmonton for over thirty five years, recognizing the need for quality rental properties for seniors at an affordable price. CLO offers luxurious but affordable apartment style condo suites with a community-minded atmosphere.
In May 2009, 160 Whitemud CLO residents were displaced when an arson fire destroyed their homes. But often through hardship comes innovation. SAHURI was commissioned to help Whitemud recover from this devastating loss.
This project gave us a unique opportunity to re-evaluate the changing needs of the senior residents and incorporate them into a new 133,994 sf. 160-unit living facility. In 2013, residents were able to return to a beautiful, newly completed, state-of-the-art building. Many improvements to the original design were implemented over and above building fire codes to promote a safe, sustainable and accessible development. The $20 million facility offers a variety of floor plans, which include one- and two-bedroom suites with kitchens and balconies. Each self-contained suite was designed to meet the needs of seniors while encouraging ongoing independence. It also features 80 affordable Dementia Assisted Living (DAL) studio units on the main floor to provide a safe and secure residential care environment.
To further enhance the home-like atmosphere, the new complex incorporates many amenities and special features including social and games areas, fitness and recreation opportunities, a full service salon, and food services with a wonderful dining room where residents can feel part of their community.
