Ecumen Building Senior Housing in Apple Valley, Minnesota and Will Manage New Maplewood, Minnesota Property

Ecumen Expanding Senior Housing in Twin Cities

(PRWEB) February 12, 2010 -- Ecumen an innovative non-profit senior housing, services and development company, is expanding in the Twin Cities. In January it broke ground on its second senior housing community in Apple Valley and will manage The Seasons at Maplewood.

This will bring the total number of Ecumen-operated communities in Minnesota to 34. This also expands Ecumen’s presence in Apple Valley and Maplewood. Ecumen owns the senior housing communities of Centennial House in Apple Valley and Lakeview Commons in Maplewood. The Seasons at Maplewood and the new Ecumen community in Apple Valley will be market-rate housing. Both construction projects are financed with HUD (Housing and Urban Development) 232 financing.

The Seasons at Maplewood is owned by Michael Pint, former senior vice president and chief financial officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis and Minnesota commissioner of banks under Governor Al Quie.

“We greatly enjoy being part of the Apple Valley and Maplewood communities and are looking forward to bringing more high-quality housing and services to area residents,” said Steve Ordahl, Ecumen’s senior vice president of business development. “These sites will be very appealing, convenient places to live.”

“We have a highly skilled team developing The Seasons at Maplewood, and we’re pleased to complete that team by partnering with Ecumen, which brings substantial expertise in senior housing and services,” said Pint.

Ecumen shares insights and expertise on its senior housing development blog.

The $27 million Apple Valley community is anticipated to open in early 2011. The 220,500 square foot community will have 134 apartments on four levels, including 106 one- and two-bedroom independent living and assisted living apartments, where residents can add a la carte supportive services as they want them. A memory care neighborhood will feature 14 apartments, as will an enhanced care neighborhood for residents with more intensive care needs.

The new Ecumen community will be located at 15359 Founders Lane in the 60-acre Central Village development, a pedestrian-oriented neighborhood in Apple Valley that will include a variety of high-density housing, retail, office, restaurant, and other uses. Amenities at the Ecumen community will include a movie theater, pub, caf for casual dining, main dining room, private dining room, gardening room, arts studio, fitness center, library, education room, and more.

Construction of The Seasons at Maplewood began last fall and the community is slated to open early this fall. It is located at 3030 Kennard Street North near Maplewood Mall and St. John’s Hospital. The 130,000 square-foot community will have 150 apartments on four levels. These will include 120 one- and two-bedroom independent living and assisted living apartments. Similar to the Ecumen Apple Valley community, residents can add a la carte supportive services as they want them. A memory care neighborhood will have 15 apartments as will an enhanced care neighborhood. Amenities will include a movie theater, fitness center, arts studio, restaurant, private dining room, caf, and more.

The Maplewood leasing office will open February 15th, 2010, and people can contact that office at 952-224-4994. Priority Club reservations will be taken beginning March 1st. In return for a $100 refundable membership fee, members will receive invites to special events prior to the opening and a priority choice of floor plans.
