Bonaventure Senior Living
Castle Rock, CO; Pueblo, CO; Colorado Springs, CO
Bonaventure Senior Living is an assisted living facility with amenities that include active outdoor recreation, interactive gardens, and a secure memory care garden.
The site’s significant grade change on its eastern border required a unique approach to planning, grading, site landscaping and site identification. Landscape design was necessary to create an attractive transition. The stormwater detention basin is treated as an amenity to the site and includes a retaining wall that has an inset identification sign to create a dramatic curb appearance.
A portion of the proposed building extends into Castle Rock’s ridgeline restrictions, requiring the design to address existing regulations that encompass this site. Through creative landscape and grading, site constraints were mitigated and provide an attractive facility that satisfied the community’s concerns.
Planning Manager Tim Nelson provided design services for this project prior to and after joining Galloway.
