King-Bruwaert House breaks ground on The Gardens expansion

As of the groundbreaking ceremony, 22 of the 44 residences were reserved. The Gardens’ homes are expected to be completed in 2023.

On a sunny September afternoon, King-Bruwaert House executives, board members, local business and construction professionals officially broke ground on The Gardens of King Bruwaert, a new independent living apartment development on the 35-acre campus.

The project is one of the largest ever undertaken by KBH in its 88-year history. The 44 independent living apartment homes will bring spacious luxury residences to the community.  The architecture for The Gardens blends Georgian exterior details with the best of the arts and crafts movement to create a feeling of warmth and familiarity. Substantial wood moldings and paneling, coupled with cozy fireplaces surrounded by exquisite stonework and built-in bookcases, create an elegant yet comfortable residence.

Additional amenities for The Gardens’ residents will include a new fitness center with a spa, game room, several dining options, a lounge with bar, library, theater, community garden, as well as a chapel. An enclosed glass walkway connects The Gardens to the existing Manor home, providing temperature-controlled access to a full range of services, activities, dining and events.

“We are truly excited about our independent living expansion plus the changes to our assisted living and skilled nursing neighborhoods,” said CEO Terri Bowen, who has been leading KBH operations since 2015. “For years we have been discussing these projects and now we are moving forward with excellent opportunities for so many people who have been interested in being part of our wonderful community.”
