SW OKC gets 60-unit care facility
Wichita, Kan.-based Legend Senior Living said it plans to build a 60-unit, freestanding memory care residence, Legend Memory Care at Rivendell, at SW 131 and May adjacent to Legend Assisted Living at Rivendell, which opened in 2008, on land purchased from Paul B. Odom III., developer of the Rivendell neighborhood. WDM Architects of Wichita, Kan., designed the residence. Construction will begin this spring with completion estimated for spring 2015.
Legend Memory Care at Rivendell will be designed for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The single-story building will complement the architectural style of Legend Assisted Living, including brick exterior, roof and extensive landscaping.
“We have taken great effort to provide a desirable environment for those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia,” said Marla Lopeman, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Legend Senior Living. “Residents will be cared for but not feel confined. Family members will enjoy visits to our calm and welcoming environment. We have learned from our success in Kansas, Florida and other areas of Oklahoma, and we are bringing the same quality of care, services and design to Legend Memory Care at Rivendell.”
Law office moves to skyscraper
The Oklahoma City office of Tulsa-based Doerner, Saunders, Daniel & Anderson law firm has moved from 201 Robert S. Kerr Ave., Suite 700, to the historic Hightower Building, Suite 500, 105 N Hudson Ave. The Hightower Building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is recognized as the last remaining Classical Revival skyscraper in Oklahoma City.
“We’re extremely excited about our move to such a historic building in the heart of downtown,” said David Herrold, managing partner at Doerner Saunders. “The space better meets our firm’s needs as we continue to grow. And given that our firm has its own history that dates back to before Oklahoma statehood, this unique building is a really good fit for us.”
