(Plainview, N.Y. – May 24, 2021) – EW Howell Construction Group, one of the region’s leading builders, has a completed The Residences at Plainview, an upscale independent living community for active senior adults in Plainview, N.Y. Developed by Capitol Seniors Housing and operated by Chelsea Senior Living, the new, 150,000-square-foot facility at 9 Gerhart Road offers 114 residential suites and high-end amenities.
EW Howell Construction Group provided full pre-construction and construction management services for the project – formerly a Residence Inn by Marriott. EW Howell was engaged by the Capital Senior Housing (CSH) team from the project’s inception at schematic design level, working closely with CSH staff and Meyers Architects to develop the project scope, and conduct value engineering studies, budgeting and constructability reviews. The firm managed all of the construction, coordinating of subcontractors and oversight of quality assurance and safety for the project. Amenities and interiors were designed by Meyer Senior Living Studio.
The Residences at Plainview offers well-appointed studios, one- and two-bedroom residences, numerous public areas for socialization, and a multitude of amenities and services. Residents can take their daily, restaurant-style meals in a beautiful dining room or on the outdoor patio when weather permits. Fitness and recreation amenities such as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, putting green, sauna, and full exercise facilities provide opportunities for health and fun. Other amenities include a bistro, sports bar, movie theater, art studio, salon, and barber shop. Among the services available to the residents are a concierge, 24/7 video surveillance and valet parking. The property is meticulously landscaped with beautiful gardens and a walking path.
“This project is unique and stands out among current senior living facilities on Long Island. We were able to renovate an existing facility which operated as a hotel for more than 30 years and turn it into a modern day independent senior living facility with beautiful finishes and improvements,” said Scott Lozier, a project manager at EW Howell who oversaw the transformation of the Residences at Plainview. “As the demand for senior living facilities rises, more operators will be looking at existing buildings for adaptive reuse, which is a great way to breathe new life into a property and extend its functionality for years to come.”
