Shaker Pointe at Carondelet
The Sisters of St. Joseph selected KDA Architects to design Shaker Pointe — an independent living community with varied housing options and a multi-faceted community center. The project is adjacent to an existing group of senior housing apartments and an existing apartment community with a high senior population.
The site plan utilizes the existing public roads and infrastructure. The various housing types have separate access to the public streets, and campus walkways connect all buildings to each other. Extensive open space areas place the community in an expansive natural setting.
The community center, which is open to the public as well as Shaker Pointe residents, includes a restaurant, café, general store, pool, fitness center, and clinic.
The other ‘half’ of the community center is for the use of the Shaker Pointe residents. It has its own covered entrance, reception area, dining venues, great room, theater, activity rooms, lounge, and library. The project achieved LEED for Homes Platinum certification.
