The Glen will premiere its new building and renovation project during a Community Celebration and Ribbon Cutting at 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 1, at 403 East Flournoy Lucas Road in Shreveport.
“This is a moment we have anticipated since 2017. I am very proud of the work that has been accomplished,” Debra Williams, President and CEO, said. “Each area of The Glen’s community has been touched by this project. It has changed our landscape immensely and is a new beginning to the next chapter of our history.”
With more than 120 years of serving older adults, this project has been a major milestone for The Glen. As a life plan community offering independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care, the new building named Redbrook, is projected to add more than 75 residents to the community. New residents moved into Redbrook in October and will continue throughout 2022.
In addition to Redbrook, which broke ground in January of 2020, The Glen has completed exterior renovations to The Stiles Apartments and Village Health Care. A secure connecting link was also added between the two Cottages Memory Care buildings.
“Though we have expanded, The Glen has made every effort to keep community at the forefront of our role,” Williams said.
Of the many local vendors used in the project, The Glen’s general contractor was Lincoln Builders. Redbrook houses 60 residences including five different floor plans ranging in sizes of 727 to 1,140 square feet. Features include granite countertops, crown molding throughout, stainless steel appliances, walk-in showers, walk-in closets, 9-foot ceilings, wall safes, in-wall medicine cabinets, washers and dryer in units, and private balconies or patios.
New amenities touted in the building include a wellness center with an indoor, heated pool with locker rooms, a strength training room with state-of-the-art equipment using HUR SmartTouch Technology and a spa and salon. Other additions are covered parking, climate-controlled resident storage, spacious grounds with multiple walking paths, two different dining options and bocce courts.
