Slave Lake, Alberta
The Vanderwell Lodge in Slave Lake had outgrown its 26 studio suites. Through government funding, 26 studio suites and 24 one-bedroom suites were added to the lodge. The 50 new suites were added directly to the west side of the existing building. Features include large multi-purpose spaces, activity/fitness area, resident laundry rooms, and a green roof patio. The three-storey expansion was carefully designed to allow for future growth of the lodge. Possible future expansion could include life lease and assisted living which would make the Vanderwell Lodge a true “aging in place” community. Vanderwell Lodge was completed in 2011.
