The private dining/meeting room is a flexible space that can be used for smaller gatherings.

Village Crossing includes multiple dining venues to allow increased choice for the residents of the 79 apartments. The community includes traditional table service, interactive chef-driven counter service and a pub and lounge for casual dining. Memory Care residents also have the flexibility to dine at tables or at the kitchen counter for direct interaction with caregivers.

The light-filled entrance lobby opens directly to the community’s pub and lounge. A large monumental stair visually and physically connects the First-Floor entry, living and dining spaces with the Terrace-Level activity space and salon, and exterior courtyard.

The pub and lounge is centrally located with a variety of seating options to promote increased activity and flexibility of use.

The Memory Care dining space includes an open residential kitchen to allow residents to interact with staff in a variety of ways.

This third-floor amenity space provides a great corner view to the adjacent Village Green.

The apartments at Village Crossing were designed to include a variety of features that increase independence and enjoyment of the residents while in their units. Features include large windows, built-in dining spaces, accessible features with a non-institutional feel, ample storage, and select units have secure, exterior terraces.

The open library creates an active gathering space between the exterior courtyard, adjacent activity studio, and theater.

The need for increased interior amenity space on a very small site resulted in a basement level wrapping around an exterior courtyard. The courtyard provides an activated exterior amenity space as well as several covered private residential terraces.
