November 5, 2010– DEW Construction Corp. and Eastview at Middlebury officially broke ground on a 101-unit residential retirement community located on 40 acres owned by Middlebury College. The project -designed by Gawron Turgeon Architects in Maine – will be located adjacent to Porter Medical Center and Helen Porter Healthcare & Rehabilitation Center.
Eastview’s retirement community will consist of an Inn with 30+ independent living apartments, as well as residential care and a Sanctuary program for those living with memory loss. In addition, there will be 30 or more cottages in the community. The buildings will integrate green materials for interior finishes and will feature efficient mechanical systems and lighting, and natural landscape features.
Actual construction will commence on the $22 million dollar project on November 16, 2010 and is scheduled for a May 2012 final completion.
