HarborChase of Shaker Heights is a premium transit-oriented senior living community located in the heart of Shaker Heights, Ohio. The new development is located within walking distance to the Van Aken District, a public library, Shaker Heights City Hall and a station along Cleveland’s rapid transit line.
The RDL team designed HarborChase of Shaker Heights to reflect the historic courtyard buildings unique to Van Aken Boulevard. Simple roof forms, a high percentage of brick and a subtle Tudor treatment is used to keep with the traditional style of architecture throughout the city of Shaker Heights.
The 3-story, 80-unit assisted living building has a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments. The design provides multiple dining options including a grand lobby with a café and bistro and three separate dining rooms. Additional amenities include a wellness center, community room, salon/spa, tea rooms and billiards rooms. A large outdoor patio will be utilized for casual dining, a putting green and a dog walk.
Connected to the 1st floor commons is a private entry to the one-story, 32-suite memory care facility. This portion of the building has its own vaulted living room/activity area as well as resident kitchen, dining rooms, and service areas appropriate to its use. Immediately outside the common spaces are secured gardens allowing residents easy access to outdoor spaces and visual supervision by the staff.
