SWBR Architects, a Rochester-based firm, announced completion of the first phase of Judson Meadows, a five-phase 48 acre full senior community campus for Baptist Health in Albany.
The firm served as lead architect on the $10.5 million assignment.
SWBR provided Baptist Health a master plan to develop the new site. When complete, the campus will range from independent living cottages to a small house skilled nursing home.
Phase one consisted of designing the site’s infrastructure and a three-story, 67-unit assisted-living building. Phase two has broken ground with the small house project, a 192-bed skilled-nursing project, and two support buildings. Future phases include 82 beds of independent living apartments, 36 independent living cottages and a medical/rehab building at the main entrance.
“We are honored to be part of this important senior housing development which will provide care for hundreds of seniors in the Capital Region area,” said Tom Gears, AIA, principal in charge at SWBR Architects.
Construction of the first phase began in August of 2012 and was completed in late fall of 2013.
