The Village at Mary’s Woods

Lake Oswego, Oregon

Situated on a 40-acre, historic riverfront property in Lake Oswego, Mary’s Woods provides a complete continuum of care for aging in place. The Village at Mary’s Woods development project greatly expanded the community’s residential and amenity options, adding a total of nine buildings on the campus.

Four residential buildings totaling 196 units of independent living are constructed of wood-frame over concrete podium levels and tuck-under parking. A 47,000 s.f. assisted living building includes 48 units providing an enhanced level of care and three amenities buildings offer a variety of restaurant, fitness, beauty, and medical care facilities for the community and the general public to enjoy. The Dunn Building is situated in the heart of the Village and serves as the community hub with a grand restaurant, pub, café, event center, office space, and a variety of indoor and outdoor seating areas for collaboration and relaxation.

R&H has also performed several other projects on the Mary’s Woods campus including the Marie Rose Center Assisted Living and Memory Care Wing addition, the addition of 17 luxury independent living estates, and a 2,375 s.f. commons addition, stitched into the heart of the community.

During the course of construction, R&H and other project team members carefully coordinated all moving parts to ensure a safe and secure site while keeping residents informed of the construction process. Residents remained on-site and amenities remained open and active throughout the entire construction project.

To accommodate residents and minimize disruption, R&H maintained an open line of communication on any upcoming closures, construction activities, and anticipated noise and dust. Through proactive and transparent communication on current or upcoming activities, R&H was able to manage expectations and anticipate potential disruptions.

Our team also implemented weekly information sessions called “Coffee Time with Wayne,” where residents were invited to ask questions and address concerns with the project superintendent. This proved effective to reduce the potential spread of misinformation, provide a learning opportunity for many and create a sense of ownership in the building process for the residents. Occupancy of the new development was phased which meant construction crews needed to steadily ramp up efforts for safety, jobsite cleanliness, wayfinding, and cordoned-off areas with trip hazards as residents began moving into their homes within the community.
