Planned more than a decade ago, the design for this age in place senior residential community was stalled during the recent recession. It was resurrected as the economy improved and was redesigned based on changed attitudes, ordinances and styles. Before the recession and through way of a referendum, our client was denied approval of a large plan development by the community organization. The same group mounted a similar opposition to the resurrected Blossom Ridge proposal. Westphal Associates had prepared all plans in accordance with local ordinances and set a path to the successful legal challenge and consent decree which allowed the project to proceed. Blossom Ridge contains several housing options for senior residents such as cottages, duplexes, apartments and large luxurious buildings with all services short of nursing care.
