St. Louis, Missouri - A new affordable independent senior living community is in the works at Telegraph Road at Franru Lane. Designed by Rosemann & Associates architectural firm, Sylvan Springs Senior Apartments spans 46,414 square feet with 50 units comprised of a combination of 10 two-bedroom, 32 one-bedroom and 8 corner one-bedroom units all with a high level of accessibility and sustainable features.
“In conjunction with our development partners, Bywater Development Group, G&W Engineering, TWM Engineering, Altman Charter Company and everyone who has joined forces to ensure a smooth and successful opening, Sylvan Springs is uniquely positioned to meet the growing demand for specialized affordable and independent senior housing in our area,” said Rosemann Studio Director Jarrett Cooper.
This residential setting will include many common use areas with a multipurpose-room and country kitchen for activities, a lobby-lounge for entertaining visitors, an extensive rear patio with lighted walking path through the property and an onsite management office. Sylvan Springs is located on a convenient bus route and near many daily shopping opportunities.
The complex demonstrates the opportunities for saving energy and living sustainably through the Enterprise Green Communities sustainability criteria. Featured items include an open stair in the lobby to encourage walking, recycled and low emitting materials for health, and an improved building envelope for energy savings. Seniors living in Sylvan Springs will enjoy a healthy lifestyle with lower energy bills.
Financial partners working with Bywater on this development include Missouri Housing Development Commission, St. Louis County Office of Community Development and PNC Bank.
Project completion is slated for May-June 2021.
