LCS Development Begins Expansion at Plantation Village in North Carolina
Plantation Village, the first and only life plan community in Wilmington, North Carolina, has partnered with LCS Development to start construction on a phased expansion project to add more residences and amenities for its residents. LCS Development will oversee the development, design, and construction of the multi-million dollar expansion. Herbert J. Sims & Co. guided the financing of the project. Construction is set to be complete by May 2023.
Once completed, the expansion will include 44 new independent living residences with covered parking. It will also include a new artisan studio, woodshop, dog park, cocktail bar and billiards room, more indoor and outdoor dining options, and expanded garden area for residents. A theater room, board room, and creative arts room are also planned.
“We have a longstanding relationship with Plantation Village and share their commitment to enriching and improving the lives of seniors,” said Nick Herrick, Director, LCS Development. “We have worked side-by-side with the Plantation Village Board to ensure they have a master plan that thoughtfully guides their development to position them well for the future. This project is an exciting outcome of that work.”
Other project partners include CJMW Architecture who has designed the expansion to align with the North Carolina architecture currently found throughout Plantation Village. FL Blum/McKinley will serve as the general contractor on the project.
“LCS Development’s expertise has brought this project to life for the current – and future – residents of Plantation Village,” said Charles Earney, Plantation Village’s Board Chair. “They have kept our mission of enriching the lives of our residents front and center. The enhanced facilities and new homes this project will bring to our beautiful campus will do that.”
Plantation Village is managed by Life Care Services, An LCS Company.
