The Russell Park Manor 55+ project is nearing completion. Designed by MMP Architects, the three storey building located at the north end of Main Street in Russell, Manitoba has a colourful street presence, tranquil outdoor areas, and warm common spaces.
Constructed next to the existing Lions Manor building, the new Park Manor building has a central location within a few blocks of Main Street conveniences. It features a stately entry canopy with car drop off zone and a magnificent lobby space with comfortable seating for conversations with family and friends. The multi-purpose room is the central gathering space and the vaulted ceilings, kitchen and gas fireplace make this space distinctive. This space is the heart of the building and will be used for a variety of activities from family celebrations, to tenant meetings, to afternoon crib games with fellow residents.
Two suite configurations are available for lease: 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units. The suites were designed to be compact and efficient, but still manage to feel open and inviting, in part because of the modern, open concept floor plan. Generously sized windows in the living room and bedrooms allow for views, natural light and fresh air. All suites have been designed to be wheelchair friendly.
A natural palette of finishes was chosen to enhance the connection to nature and well being. Rich, wood grains create feelings of warmth and beauty and can be found in the laminated veneer plank and carpet, which were chosen with visual appeal, comfort and durability in mind. Different colours were chosen for the corridors of each floor level to aid residents in wayfinding and navigation.
Russell Park Manor 55+ is now accepting expressions of interest for life lease. For more information, please contact Terry Rolfe at (204) 773-4728.
