May 10, 2012

North Shore PlaceNorthbrook-based SAS Architects & Planners has been tapped by Senior Lifestyle Corp. to build North Shore Place, a new assisted living/dementia care facility.

The center will be located at 1000 Sunset Ridge Road in Northbrook. The two-phase project is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

North Shore Place will be a five-story, 156  residency unit with 40 one- and two-bedroom apartments designed for residents who need memory care services.

A second phase will focus on dementia patients. The building will be a one-story, 32-unit assisted living care center.

“North Shore Place will be the latest in more than a dozen facilities we’ve designed over the last decade that contain dementia care components,” said SAS President Steven E. Sussholz, AIA. “Since the firm began in 1954, we’ve worked on more than 120 eldercare projects — representing the entire continuum of care — including nursing homes, sheltered care, assisted living, supportive living, congregate care, dementia care and independent living facilities.”

SAS Architects & Planners has been a leading force in the healthcare, senior living and commercial sectors since 1954.  The company has built memory centers throughout Chicagoland including The Landing in LaGrange Park, Autumn Leaves in Vernon Hills, Brighton Gardens in Hoffman Estates and the Gidwitz Friend Center in Deerfield.
