Each living facility included a dining room, community room, administrative support space and a full central kitchen. The independent living building included a multipurpose room, and the assisted living building included a theater / multipurpose room. A commercial laundry is located in the independent living building and residential laundries are in both buildings.

HVAC system design included through the wall packaged terminal air conditioning (PTAC) units with electric heating in resident rooms. Corridors and common rooms were ventilated, and air conditioned via rooftop packaged AC Units with gas fired furnaces. Interior and rooftop package air units were provided for pantry and kitchen hood makeup and central laundry makeup. Ducted variable air volume terminal boxes were provided for common and dining areas.

Both buildings were fully sprinklered and fire alarm systems were provided. A fire standpipe system was also required so that a combined fire standpipe and sprinkler system with fire pumps was designed.
