Wind Crest Senior Housing
A senior living community with a complete continuum of care, Wind Crest occupies a 140-acre campus. Approximately 1,950 residential units and a continuing care facility are arranged within three separate neighborhoods. The site’s design focuses on preserving views of the Rocky Mountain foothills and Denver skyline while protecting the Highline Canal corridor that bisects the site. Landscape design elements encompass three compatible themes that focus on the local environments. Residents’ lifestyles, interests and activity levels influenced the design of site elements and outdoor spaces.
