The Grand Lodge will feature 101 independent living apartments, 60 assisted living and memory support apartments and a 32,000 square-foot clubhouse, with an expected opening in late 2014. More than 60 people will be hired to staff the new addition.
The resort-style clubhouse will feature amenities such as a heated indoor saltwater pool; a hot tub; a full-service salon and day spa; a fitness an exercise classroom; a movie theater; a restaurant, bistro and pub; and resident gardening areas.
