Brightview Senior Living – Devon

Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, PA

Nave Newell worked with The Shelter Group on a new senior living facility in Devon. The project included redeveloping a 2.75 acre commercial property along E. Conestoga Road into a 5-story, 193-bed Brightview Life Care Facility. The new facility offers multiple lifestyle options including independent apartment living, assisted living, and memory care facilities. Nave Newell worked with the client to develop various site layout options for this complex project. The site plans provided a grading solution to allow the capping of existing soil contamination on site. Nave Newell also provided expert testimony to the Tredyffrin Township Zoning Hearing Board.

Sustainable features incorporated into the design include a green roof and a roof trellis garden as well as a pedestrian-oriented streetscape walkable to nearby shopping with new streets lights, landscape, and seating. Our landscape architects designed an independent living garden to create a sense of community and encourage interaction between residents with a bocce court, fire pit, pergola, outdoor seating, planting table, and a perennial herb garden. Brightview opened in May 2019.
