Expansion Project

Expansion Project

WE ARE GETTING READY TO GROW!!!!

We are currently working our way through the New Castle County Land Development Process. We are expanding from our current 24 bed facility to a total 62 bed facility. Including a Secure Dementia Unit called the Garden House. This explanation will increase our care options and allow our residents to age in place. We are hopeful to complete land development and obtain our building permits by February of 2019. Ground breaking will start in the spring of 2019. We look forward to opening our new building, summer of 2020.

We will be posting updates and pictures of the project right here on our web site. Please check back to track our progress!

Thank you,

Tammy and George Loudon

 

HISTORIC REVIEW BOARD REVISED SUBMISSIONS 
FOR PROPOSED ADDITION TO

Ivy Gables

Since the business meeting of the Historic Review Board (HRB) on July 3, 2018, the building plan and site layout have been reevaluated
in response to the comments received at the two HRB meetings and the meeting with the community. Substantial
changes have been made to both and include the following:

  1. The addition layout and orientation on the site has been modified from a bar configuration to an L-shaped configuration.
    This allows the building to be situated so that the viewshed to the stone farmhouse along Miller Road is maintained and
    the station path (alley) is kept intact.
  2. The face of the addition along Millers Road is stepped back from the face of the stone farmhouse so that it is secondary
    to it.
  3. The drive to the front entrance and drop off area has been relocated from the Millers Road to Swiss Lane — an existing
    two-lane road that currently serves as the primary access to Ivy Gables.
  4. The L-shaped configuration reduces the length of the residential wing by over 40 feet and helps to reduce the overall
    massing of the addition.
  5. Stone elements have been added to primary components on the facade and site walls to complement stone elements
    found on the existing farmhouse and Ivy Gables addition.
  6. Additional landscaping has been added to help maintain the natural quality and character of the neighborhood.
