Newest Mankato Senior Living Community Now Open
Mankato, MN–Oppidan Investment Company, a national property development firm headquartered in Excelsior, MN, and Ebenezer Management Services, the largest residential management company in the state that specializes in senior housing, announce the opening of The Pillars of Mankato, the area’s newest senior living community at 3125 Prairie Rose Drive. A grand opening celebration for the community will be held in July.
The project is located on 3.87 acres and features a 3-story, 145,000 square foot building that includes 118 units offering seniors a choice of independent living, assisted living or memory care.
The Pillars of Mankato boasts of a variety of amenities to help seniors feel right at home, including a four-season porch, underground parking and a community sun deck, fitness center, salon/spa, chapel and library. Excellent dining options include chef-prepared meals in the dining room, a pub and a separate dining room for seniors in memory care. Guest suites will be available to allow families the option to stay the night close to their loved ones. An exam room and spa room are also on-site to allow enhanced healthcare options, close to home.
“When seniors in Mankato make the difficult decision to move from their homes and into a senior living community, they deserve first-class options,” said Shannon Rusk, Oppidan Senior Vice President of Development. “This project gives them a premier place to call home.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome our first residents into their new home at the Pillars of Mankato,” said Jonathan Lundberg, Ebenezer President and Chief Executive Officer. “This community is specifically designed to help area seniors live longer, healthier and more meaningful lives.”
The project’s general contractor was Greystone Construction and architect was Kaas Wilson Architects.
This is the fifth joint project between Oppidan and Ebenezer. Other properties include White Bear Heights, Highlands of St. Paul, Shorewood Landing, and Pillars of Prospect Park (expected in 2020) in Minneapolis.
