Project: The Edelweiss Village & Schrafft Pavilion
Location: West Roxbury, MA
Project Type: Multi-Residential
Owner: Deutsches Altenheim, Inc.
Aberthaw completed Edelweiss Village on the campus of the Deutsches Altenheim German Centre for Extended Care. Noted for its exceptional care to those with varying stages of Alzheimer’s, this newly constructed, 51,600 sq. ft. assisted living community features 62 units of three different sizes and 13 separate layouts, and also provides residents the comforts of common areas for gatherings, day programs, exercise and meals. Additional amenities included in this $12 Million project are a full commercial kitchen and a 110’ span cantilever bridge connection to the existing, fully operational nursing facility.
The construction of the Schrafft Pavilion called for a new, 19,000 sq. ft. split-level addition and associated renovations for a new Alzheimer’s specialty care unit. Widely recognized as a leader in the care of Alzheimer’s, the Schrafft is uniquely designed to include family members in the care of loved ones. Additional improvements incorporated into this $5 Million project include a new main entrance, lobby, reception area and administrative offices. The Schrafft Pavilion is one of multiple projects completed by Aberthaw for the Deutsches Altenheim German Centre for Extended Care, all of which have been completed under fully occupied, fully operational conditions.
