The Residence at Plainview
Capitol Seniors Housing
Located at 9 Gerhard Road in Plainview, NY, this project included the fit-out of an existing Marriot Hotel into a new luxury senior living facility. The Residence at Plainview, a 55+ independent living community, by Capitol Seniors Housing and Chelsea Senior Living, offers lifestyle choices for independent seniors more closely associated with a luxury hotel. Amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a fully equipped gym, restaurant-style dining and spacious one and two-bedroom apartments, each with a fully equipped kitchen. The residence offers 116 units with studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom options, each with its own walkout patio or porch.
The 145, 000 SF project offers a dining room overlooking a hardscaped outdoor patio and pool, a two-story open lobby with a full-height fireplace as well as bistro, bar, and lounge areas. On the second floor, a new amenity-rich main street, including a beauty salon, barber shop, and central library, has been created in one central location. With a focus on resident fitness and wellness, the project includes a gym, locker rooms, massage rooms, sauna, indoor poll, yoga room, beauty salon, barber shop, a home health office, and two wellness rooms for on-site consultations. Outdoor amenities include a putting green, gardens, and a sylvan walking path.
The design aesthetic was inspired by the Long Island beach community with large, airy spaces, ample natural light, indoor and outdoor pool, and pastel finishes invoking a sense of being on vacation, as well as the elegance of New York City as evident by a sports bar and gourmet, restaurant-style dining. This balance can be found in the design elements throughout the community.
