Senior Living: The Same, but Different
First & Main Senior Living has recently opened two new facilities in the greater Columbus, Ohio region. Both facilities provide 60 units of assisted living and 44 units of memory care. Each three-story building is 101,000 square feet with a residential courtyard in the center.
The residents are provided with full upscale dining facilities, a hospitality bistro, contemporary open living rooms, spa, salon, movie theater, chapel, and fitness facilities. The courtyard includes a putting green, planting areas, seating, and gazebo for outdoor activities. The bistro and dining rooms have adjoining outdoor environments for warm weather dining.
In Lewis Center, the First & Main traditional branding is continued in the exterior building design with multiple brick colors, metal entrance canopy, and large windows at the entrance. The Lewis Center style building continues the transitional design aesthetic found in the other Michigan locations designed by Hobbs+Black.
At New Albany, an entirely new architecture has been developed for the building to fit in with the unique design character of the community. The brick building with smaller windows, cornices, jack arches, and water table brick detailing responds to the Georgian Revival style found throughout the area. The site is planned for future growth for an independent living building adjoining to the side and duplex cottages along a community nature path.
While both locations resonate the First & Main mission to inspire purpose in the lives of residents, their families, and team members, they embrace the aesthetic differences in their individual communities. Though they look very different, the Lewis Center and New Albany facilities are homes where residents can find the care they need to stay well and live active, vibrant, and healthy lives.
