SENIOR LIVING Our Senior Living Studio sits at the nexus of several of Cooper Carry’s specialties: mixed-use, hospitality, restaurant + bar, and multifamily residential. Its creation was an inevitable growth segment for us, and a long-time dream. At Cooper Carry we say “we are a mixed-use firm”; we believe it takes a true depth of expertise to get things right so we built Senior Living on a multi-use platform that brings together authorities in all the right fields. This allows us to bring you the latest trends in dining, hospitality, residential, retail, interiors, landscape architecture, planning, and more.


OUR CORE TEAM Senior Living at Cooper Carry was the outcome of personal aspirations and a logical next step in a MixedUse firm.

OUR ADVISORS

JERRY COOPER CHAIRMAN Meet Jerry Cooper, the Cooper in Cooper Carry. He was 30 years old when he started our firm in his guest bedroom, his wife pregnant with their first child. Jerry turned 90 in 2020, and he is still here everyday making it happen, staying relevant. You don’t have to tell us about seniors needing to be active and relevant, we all sit around wishing we were as relevant as Jerry is.

01 PROJECT PROFILE STUDY


BEFORE

Urbanization of suburbia The Idea 2

As the newest generation of seniors begins to look into their next phase they are driving changes in Senior Living offerings. The desire to retreat to a rural pastoral setting gating out the rest of the community is gone. This generation wants to be active, connected, and continue to live a meaningful and

7

thoughtful life. And they want to do it their way. They are not retiring; they are reinventing themselves.

2 What we did

4

Through our visioning and inquiry sessions we continued to come back to our core beliefs about what makes and keeps a community active and healthy. We took

6

our ideas and paired them with the latest thought

5

leadership in our multiple adjacent disciplines and idealized what this community could be in reality. We took a site we have worked on many times in suburban Atlanta and envisioned a new Senior Living story.

1


1

CHOOSE LOCATION WISELY We chose a location with existing amenities, services, and good public transportation to maximize existing uses.

2

Increase density selectively In addition to providing the full continuum of senior living we added age targeted market rate and workforce housing to increase density, diversity and encourage the local workforce to live and work in the community.

3

Be a good neighbor In addition to providing structured parking for the office park the multifamily and senior living amenities were turned outward to the larger community to provide true community services.

Create the heartbeat Use the scheduled activities provided in communities to activate the larger external community and bring people together.

Provide stickiness Create the places that events happen and people return to.

1

Choose location wisely This site is near a train station, hospital, hotel, a large office park, and a new dining courtyard.

2

Increase density selectively The full continuum of senior living. Age targeted market rate and workforce housing. We densified the other street by providing kiosk retail and restaurant buildings to hold the urban edge and provided amenities for all of the residential and office tenants.

3

Be a good neighbor Traditional community rooms, theatre rooms, libraries, and business centers can be located at street level and be integrated into public offerings.

4

Create the heartbeat Street festivals, markets, exhibits, event lawns, public parks, concerts, and town halls. By providing this at the street level and in the adjacent spaces pulls residents out and the community in to activate the neighborhood.

5

Provide stickiness Provide spaces for sitting, people watching, street dining, shade, water play, pet parks. Provide balconies with views of the action.

LOBBY We challenge the idea of segregation. In this community there would be a single shared lobby for both multi-family and senior living to allow for interaction and people watching. A flexible breakfast and cocktail bar, seating areas, library and media areas would be in the heart of the activity space encouraging engagement, connectivity, and activity. There will be direct access to the restaurant and bar from the lobby as well as to the street.



Restaurant & bar Pulling the primary restaurant and bar for the Senior Living community down to a shared lobby would allow for people watching inside the restaurant and the lobby as well as the street level. This would be open to the public and have extended hours, sidewalk entrances and street and park dining, enhancing the social and community connectivity.



Wellness Center The wellness facilities would be open for the entire community and provide services for all levels of mobility, health, and rehabilitation. The center would face the street for community connection and an event lawn to take advantage of bringing nature and natural light indoors. This event lawn would also host exterior fitness events to draw in the local community. Equipment and trainers for all levels would be available, including on site rehabilitation.

MULTI-PURPOSE SPACE A large community room would be pulled to the exterior ground level of the building. By moving the assembly room and pre-function space to the street and adjacent or connected to a co-working lab or community library, we would begin to activate the neighborhood and draw a larger community in for events, dining, and activity. These spaces would double as a community room, community theater, exhibit space, pop up markets and events, private dining room, and event space. All ages and user types would have access to this space.



Residential Units Our home is our private sanctuary, our place of gathering, our shelter. As we lose mobility our personal space must continue to support our need for shelter, socialization, and independence while maintaining our personal dignity. More than that our living space should be uplifting, rejuvenating, our home. Units have: •

Open floor plans to provide connection, wide views, ease of movement, designs customized for integrated accommodations for limited reach ranges and mobility. Soft edges and integrated supports are visually seamless with stylish design.

•

Large windows harnessing natural light and view. These help to support socialization, a connection with the exterior, and regulating circadian rhythms.

•

Large exterior social and community gathering spaces integrated as a daily path to encourage providing gathering and socialization.
