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 expected to be 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 right on the banks of the bustling Fox River, and is conveniently close to downtown Appleton.
The vacant lot had lain dormant for years after the Foremost Dairy Plant closed its doors in 2003. Our clients knew the area was in need of redevelopment, and a senior living facility would be the perfect property to fill the space. Despite the beauty and potential of the location, Isaac Wallace, Project Architect, said the unique waterfront site presented many challenges. These challenges ultimately led to the building’s shape and location on the lot. “Being on the waterfront, we had to deal with water frontage setbacks that limited the footprint of the building, and we had to work around an abandoned raceway that brought the river through the previous building.”
Regardless of any setbacks, the project is now open with its grand opening at the end of August. The facility will includes 98 independent and assisted living apartments and soon seven single-family homes. Our design team worked tirelessly to provide plenty of spaces that will engage the community and encourage active lifestyles. The basement includes 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 available for the residents.
