GREENSBORO, N.C. — LCS Development has started construction of a $75 million expansion at WhiteStone, a Masonic and Eastern Star seniors housing community in Greensboro.
The project includes the addition of 67 independent living units, a building with 36 private suites for assisted living/memory care, and an extensive renovation of the existing skilled nursing facility.
“We’re looking forward to enhancing our services with this expansion,” says Mark Lewis, executive director of WhiteStone. “The addition of the assisted living suites will complete the continuum of care for residents and allow our community to serve more seniors.”
The 100-year-old community is located on a 43-acre campus. The operator is Life Care Services. Todd Shaw, director of development services at LCS Development, will serve as project manager for the expansion.
Cain Brothers, a division of KeyBanc Capital Markets, underwrote the bond financing for the project. The project team includes SFCS Architects, Frank L. Blum Construction Company as general contractor and Stimmel Associates as civil engineer/land planner. A completion timeline was not released.
