Repositioning Senior Housing in Duluth

Posted By Dana Wollschlager, Director of Real Estate DevelopmentThe The photos above show the ‘today’ and ‘yesterday’ of our senior housing community in Duluth, Minnesota, called Lakeshore. Lakeshore is located just down the street from the historic Glensheen mansion.This senior housing development was a complete repositioning of an outdated nursing home. The new Lakeshore was designed with a lot of input from community members. They wanted this to be a place that you could live independently, but where you’d have easy access to health care. They wanted it to offer some of the best views on Lake Superior, and wanted it to be a destination place or a community that was an integral part of the larger community rather than isolated. Lakeshore, which includes full independent living, assisted living, memory care and rehabilitation services, hits all of those desires.We’ll soon direct you to the new Lakeshore web site. We’re finishing up some changes and adding some new photos (talk about great views). The new Lakeshore is a great example of senior housing development that repositions an outdated nursing home and creates housing that people want to live in while making health services easily accessible. The new Lakeshore expresses that ‘aging is about living.’Next time you’re headed to the North Shore stop at Lakeshore and grab a sandwich or a pie at their Cascade Cafe. People from around around the area drive here for lunch, light dinner or a snack for the road.
