Maplewood Senior Living, a leading provider of luxury senior living residences, held the ground break for its newest Connecticut community, Maplewood at Southport. Fairfield First Selectman, Mark Tetreau, and Director of Economic Development, Mark Barnhart, along with the development team attended the groundbreaking ceremony at the future site of Maplewood at Southport.

“As a Westport, CT based company, developing in Southport has long been a dream of ours, and we are thrilled to start construction on our latest residence in Connecticut. Our development in Southport demonstrates the commitment we have to continue to invest in and engage with the Greater Fairfield community and local area seniors and their families. Maplewood Senior Living is known for its unmatched design and care model standards and we look forward to providing those same exceptional services and amenities for our future Southport residents,” said Gregory D. Smith, President and CEO of Maplewood Senior Living.

Maplewood is committed to investing locally; for that reason, the development team assembled by Maplewood consists of regionally-based companies. Stein Troost Architecture of Norwalk is the architectural firm designing the building, along with, Milone & McBroom of Cheshire as the landscape architects, Landtech of Westport as the civil engineers and KBE Building Corporation of Farmington as the construction manager. The project will commence immediately and is expected to finish in 2019.
Maplewood at Southport will be a 93,000sq ft. building surrounded by 10 acres of natural landscape with beautiful gardens and walking paths for residents to enjoy as part of the total 27-acre land trust plot purchased by Maplewood to develop. The community will consist of 98 apartments and offer assisted living and memory care services for residents while providing a vibrant community with beautiful amenities and unmatched services. From an open, display dining room featuring farm to-table fare to a luxurious salon and spa, library, a pub and bistro, Maplewood at Southport is committed to remaining the choice provider for Connecticut area seniors.
