Cadence is currently providing master planning services to Louisiana’s oldest non-profit assisted living facility. Cadence conducted a visioning workshop and created a master plan for The Glen that is a return to nature. The park-like setting will utilize all 53 acres of outdoor space nestled between Bayou Pierre and E. Flournoy Lucas Road. Cadence reimagined outdoor spaces as both functional and passive living for residents and staff. The approved master plan provides additional pathways, trails, reconfigured parking scenarios, and developed a unified planting plan that will create order and an identity for the campus. Over 5.5 acres of added outdoor living space is provided for residents, staff and visitors to explore, utilize as gathering space and to reflect in nature. The design objective was to create a seamless link between residents, staff and visitors, thus allowing for psychological and life-long benefits for all within The Glen campus. A signature component to the master plan – Glenview Park, is a multi-generational park. The park, open to the public will provide opportunities for developing partnerships with both private and public interests within the community.
