Lawnside Senior Residence Lawnside, New Jersey

This new community is the result of both new construction and the adaptive-reuse of an historic school building to provide forty, one-bedroom rental apartment homes for seniors. Classroom spaces in the old school were converted into sixteen senior apartments, and a new twenty-four unit building was constructed at the rear portion of the former school site.

Both the buildings and individual units prove a range of amenities for today’s lifestyle. Each home features a fully-equipped kitchen with Energy Star appliances and individual heating and cooling. Building amenities include a club room with community kitchen, exercise room, computer lab with internet access, laundry center, and visiting physician’s office.

The school building’s exterior was fully restored to bring back the original architectural character while updating the interior spaces for contemporary senior living. The new adjacent building was designed to complement the character and historic charm of the original school. Both buildings are fully accessible and include many energy saving features.
