Yesterday, Rob Wallace, President & CEO, Canterbury Woods, along with Charles Maloney, Chairman of the Board of Directors, came together with city and business officials to commemorate the start of construction for the new Canterbury Woods Gates Circle project.
It won’t be long before the ever-impressive Gates Circle fountain has a $41 million backdrop in the form of a building that will house 53 independent living apartments. After a number of design revisions, the plan was ultimately given the go-ahead to be built upon a parcel within 1.4-acres of land.
TM Montante Development requested to subdivide the entire former hospital site into five parcels, one of which was sold to the nonprofit Episcopal Church for Canturbury Woods. The other parcels have plans for a mix of apartments, townhomes, condominiums, and retail space.
Along with the apartments, the complex will also feature an assisted living component facing Gates Circle and Chapin Parkway. There are additional plans on the table for a market, YMCA, shops, and other amenities that will be located on site.
