JOB DESCRIPTION:

The 11-story, 317,683 square foot cast-in-place concrete framed senior living center in Evanston Illinois was developed to serve as a continuing-care retirement community equipped with 143 apartments for independent seniors, 24 assisted-living suites and 40 nursing-care units.

To complement the charm of the neighborhood the architect, Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates, designed the building to be reminiscent of buildings constructed in the early 1900’s. A rusticated cast stone base provides an eye level scale and texture. Cast stone Juliet balconies, quoining, parapet panels, and other details articulate the norman brick clad tower and provide a regular scale and rhythm that is further accentuated by the frequent plane changes of the façade. Regular use of soldier courses at window heads, cast stone accent bands, and decorative brick panels provide further scale and character. These details, along with the careful placement of the building, result in an overall impression of a quality masonry building that has been in the neighborhood for years.
