This project involved a major expansion and renovation of the Parkland Lodge in Edson. There are 105 suites in total with 42 standard lodge suites, 6 one-bedroom units, 16 memory care suites (used as DSL units at this time), 18 renovated suites, and 23 rental apartments—21 one bedroom and 2 two-bedroom. Amenities include an open concept dining room, commercial kitchen, patios or balconies for all new units, four public balconies and three public patios, hair salon, two small dining areas, scooter storage, family dining room, four recreational/multi-purpose rooms, 11 common areas/sitting areas, three resident laundry rooms, and two spa rooms. The facility provides a range of seniors’ living opportunities from completely independent apartments to DSL 4. The lodge itself encompasses DSL 2 to 4.
We worked within the existing site conditions which include beautiful grounds, walking paths, and a creek running through the property, all of which were maximized in the design. The resulting lodge is a lovely, comfortable, and homey residence for Edson area seniors. Parkland Lodge was completed in August of 2020.
