EAGLE POINT SENIOR LIVING
Named after the pair of bald eagles that nest in a cottonwood tree on the southern tip of the lot, Eagle Point Senior Living is a unique and lively place to call home. Iconica partnered with Tealwood Senior Living, The Alexander Company, and Tukka Properties to bring this 143,000 SF senior housing project to Appleton. The 7.5 acre site is located on the banks of the bustling Fox River, and is conveniently close to downtown.
The vacant lot laid dormant for years after the Foremost Dairy Plant closed its doors in 2003. Our clients proposed a senior living facility as a perfect complement to the residential and educational uses nearby. Despite the beauty and potential of the location, however, the unique waterfront site presented many challenges which ultimately led to the building’s shape and location on the lot. Being on the waterfront, the design team had to comply with water frontage setbacks that limited the footprint of the building, and had to work around an abandoned raceway that brought the river through the previous building.
Eagle Point Senior Living includes 98 independent and assisted living apartments. The design incorporates plenty of spaces to engage the community and encourage active lifestyles. In the basement is a wellness suite consisting of a salon, spa, fitness area, and exam room, while the main level includes a two-story bistro with gorgeous views of the river. Other luxurious amenities include a library, family game room, arts and crafts room, theater, wine cellar, and general store. For those who prefer outdoor activities, there are also grilling areas, a pedestrian path, putting green, bocce ball, shuffleboard courts, and boat rides.
