Construction on Independent Retirement Community Expected to Begin in Spring 2019

As the population of Baby Boomers ages in unprecedented numbers, the need for senior housing throughout the United States is increasing. The demographic growth for seniors in the City of Wildwood, MO, a suburb of St. Louis County, is a witness to that trend. Initial market research indicates a projected need for independent living retirement apartments in the Wildwood area and vicinity.

St. Louis-based developer Landwide Development Corporation (LDC) has plans to build a $22 million mixed-use, market-rate independent senior living community in the heart of Wildwood called The Prime Place at Wildwood Town Center to accommodate those active seniors.

Located at the corner of Main and Eastgate streets, the proposed development is within the city’s town center and within walking distance of a pharmacy, movie theater, restaurants, hotel, grocery store, gym, doctor offices, parks and trails, and other shopping.

“Our senior living community provides a new kind of independence, unlike anything else in the area. Our development will encourage residents to remain active within downtown Wildwood and promote interaction between residents and their families within the surrounding business, shopping and entertainment area. The Town Center district offers access to many important services and choices that will help our residents remain independent, healthy and active,” said Landwide Development Corp. President Michael E. Kennedy, Sr. “We refer to our development as the state rooms on the cruise ship, and the stores around it is the deck of the ship. I can’t think of any place safer than Wildwood Town Center.”

Landwide plans to begin pre-leasing the apartments in December 2018, with a ground breaking planned in summer 2019. Although the community will not be completed until 2020, interested seniors will be able to view model and perspective renderings of the apartments and lobby areas by visiting a leasing office that will be set up on the development’s proposed site.

KAI Design & Build has been contracted to serve as architect, engineer and general contractor on The Prime Place development.

Kennedy, Sr. has more than 40 years of experience in real estate and architecture, having directed the design of more than 16,000 units of multifamily housing throughout Southern and Midwestern United States.

Wildwood will soon be home to a unique living experience unlike any other in the St Louis area. The Timbers at Fox Mountain, a new home development spearheaded by custom home builder Hibbs Homes, will offer mountain resort-style timber homes in the heart of Meramec Valley, just minutes from I-44, in the sought-after Rockwood School District. The community will also be the first fully energy efficient community in the St. Louis region.

The community, launching in September 2016, will include just eight home sites, with finished home prices starting at $695,000. The Timbers at Fox Mountain is located in the Rockwood School District, and is centrally located while also being nestled away from the everyday hustle and bustle.

Private wooded lots will range from 3 to 14 acres and will provide homeowners with easy access to a range of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and horseback riding with close proximity to major parks such as Rockwoods Reservation, Pacific Palisades Conservation Area, Route 66 State Park and West Tyson County Park. The resort-style neighborhood is also just minutes from Hidden Valley Ski Resort. The location is a golfer’s dream with close proximity to some of the most impressive golf courses the state has to offer, including The Legends, Pevely Farms, The Aberdeen, The Crescent, and Fox Run golf clubs all located within minutes of The Timbers at Fox Mountain.

Unique timber frame home designs

In addition to the one-of-a-kind landscapes available, the community will also offer truly unique timber frame home designs that are both rustic and luxurious. The team at Hibbs Homes will design each home to highlight the natural beauty of the scenery.

“The landscape here is so unique and beautiful that we wanted to create home designs that felt like an organic extension of the natural environment. We had a vision to create a community where the homeowners would feel as if they have their own getaway every day,” said Kim Hibbs, CEO of Hibbs Homes. “

St. Louis’s First Fully Energy Efficient Community

Known for groundbreaking work in energy efficient, sustainable home building, Hibbs will launch the Timbers at Fox Mountain as a fully energy efficient community. Energy Star appliances and Energy Star rated windows will be standard in every home. Homeowners will have the option to further improve their level of efficiency with optional additions including Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), upgraded insulation packages, geothermal heating and cooling systems and more.

Located off one-half mile off of Fox Creek Road on Model Realty Road in Wildwood, the community sales will begin in early fall in partnership with Tom Shaw Realtors and Coldwell Banker Gundaker in Town & Country.
