Beacon Development Group is excited to announce that Senior Housing News (SHN) awarded Rotary Terrace Senior Housing as the first-place winner of the sixth Annual SHN Architecture & Design Awards for affordable housing communities.
SHN established the Architecture & Design Awards in 2013 as a way to recognize and celebrate companies utilizing cutting-edge design and innovation to improve the lives of seniors.
Rotary Terrace was among more than 100 communities worldwide vying for the top honors across nine categories which included affordable housing, assisted living, continuing care retirement community (CCRC), hospice, independent living, international, renovation/repositioning, skilled nursing/post-acute care and standalone memory care.
“Winning the SHN design award is a great honor for HumanGood. It reflects our larger organizational commitment to inspire seniors to live their best lives possible regardless of their economic status,” says Cindy Proctor, vice president at Beacon Development Group (BDG), a subsidiary of HumanGood.
Opened in January 2019, this 81-unit senior housing community was developed in partnership with HumanGood Affordable Housing (HGAH) and the South San Francisco Rotary Club. BDG worked closely with HKIT Architects and J.E. Roberts-Obayashi as the General Contractor to create an innovative design.
The design features of this community include comfortable spaces, two-rooftop terraces, a second-floor open-air courtyard and lounge areas. It also has sustainable design features including a solar power system, high-efficiency LED fixtures with sensor controls, EnergyStar appliances and dual-pane energy efficient windows. A fitness center, library and high-speed internet are among the community’s many amenities; and it also houses ground-level office space for the Rotary Club that doubles as a public community space.
Located a quarter mile from a Caltrain station in South San Francisco, CA, this five-story building is a great addition to the city’s downtown redevelopment subarea.
