Waterstone at Wellesley Wins Gold Award for Design from National Association of Home Builders
WELLESLEY, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
The National Association of Home Builders today named Waterstone at
Wellesley, a luxury senior living community in Wellesley, 2013 gold
award winner for excellence in senior housing design at the trade
association's annual national conference in Las Vegas. Ted Tye, managing
partner of National Development, was on hand to accept the award.
Waterstone, a joint venture of National Development of Newton and EPOCH
Senior Living of Waltham, was designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects. The
interior design was done by Wellesley Design Associates and landscape
architecture by Stantec's Boston office. The community includes 134
apartments, opened in May 2012, and has attracted seniors from
throughout the region.
The NAHB is a preeminent U.S. building association. This award, a
showcase for innovation, emerging trends and quality housing for
seniors, recognizes excellence in building, design, marketing and
lifestyles of housing for seniors. Tye said the Waterston team is
honored to have received this prestigious recognition.
"We took a historic site in a prime location in Wellesley that had been
abandoned for nearly 20 years and turned it into a jewel of the
community," he said. "We incorporated the industrial mill history of
this area into the building's design to create something that blends
well with the existing architecture in the community."
The Waterstone at Wellesley campus includes independent and assisted
living rental apartments for seniors 62 and older, as well as retail and
medical office space. It is built on the former site of a Grossman's
hardware store, which sat vacant for years before being demolished prior
to Waterstone's development.
The features that secured Waterstone's gold medal include its innovative
fitness program with personal trainers; unique design featuring private
porches for access to the outdoors; an accessible riverfront walking
path with raised gardens; and an adaptable design and structure.
