Sagewood Receives Top Senior Housing News Architecture and Design Award for Independent Living Communities
PHOENIX, Arizona, January 4, 2022 —Senior Housing News (SHN) has named Sagewood as the first-place winner in the independent living category in its ninth annual SHN Architecture & Design Awards. The SHN award recognizes cutting-edge design, excellence, and innovation in senior living and celebrates unique projects and companies that are improving the lives of seniors through innovative design.
Located in the scenic desert of northeast Phoenix, Sagewood is a luxury senior living community featuring a fitness center, movie theaters, indoor and outdoor pools, a performing arts center for multi-purpose use, formal and casual dining. LCS Development recently led Phase II of the Sagewood expansion – the largest addition to the 85-acre senior living community since it opened in 2010. The project added 101 independent living apartment homes, new restaurants and amenities including The Links at Sagewood, an 18-hole championship golf putting course that was designated a 2020 Design Excellence honoree by the American Society of Golf Course Architects.
“LCS Development has brought the expertise we needed to develop a best-in-class community that will attract residents for generations to come,” said Stewart Ingram, Sagewood’s Executive Director. “In fact, shortly after opening in March of 2021, this award-winning expansion is now 95 percent occupied and 96 percent sold.”
“This year’s winning entries are a look at the future of senior living architecture and design,” said George Yedinak, founder of Senior Housing News. “SHNA’s showcase of best-in-class builds has yet again set a new precedent for senior living facilities as the industry shifts and new demographics flood the market.”
Sagewood was developed by LCS Development and is managed by Life Care Services, An LCS Company. Todd & Associates is the design architect and Weitz has served as the general contractor for the community.
