Lutheran Senior Services Begins $70M Independent Living Expansion in Missouri
TOWN AND COUNTRY, MO. — Lutheran Senior Services has started construction of an independent living expansion of Mason Point, a seniors housing community in the St. Louis suburb of Town and Country. The $70 million expansion will add 156 new units to the community, as well as new amenities. The project will include a three-story, 390,000-square-foot building with underground parking, a wellness center and an indoor pool. The new property will connect to an adjacent building that will be renovated to become a community center featuring dining venues, a media room, theater, game room, chapel, art studio, health clinic and meeting rooms. Nearly half of the new apartments have already been reserved, according to Lutheran Senior Services. BSI Constructors is the general contractor, and the project architect is Grubbs and Associates. The project is scheduled for completion in summer 2020. Lutheran Senior Services acquired the community, formerly known as Cedars of Town & Country, in February 2016. The new independent living units will convert the property into a continuing care retirement community, offering all levels of care. The additional 156 new beds will bring Mason Pointe’s total to 408 beds. This includes the existing 164 long-term care beds along with 43 assisted living and 45 short-stay rehab beds.
