JEFFERSON CITY, MO – South Dakota based Primrose Retirement Communities began construction today on an 84-unit independent and assisted living community in Jefferson City. The multi-million dollar project is expected to be open in the winter of 2014. It will be built by Omni Construction Company, Inc. and is being financed by Central Bank in Jefferson City. When open, the retirement community expects to employ approximately 30 people.
Primrose Retirement Community of Jefferson City will be situated on ten acres at 5408 Old Lohman Road. The community will consist of 36 independent living and 40 assisted living apartment homes in the main two-story building and eight independent living townhome villas. The apartments will be available in one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Residents will enjoy an array of public areas including a wellness center, pub, billiards room, chapel, movie theater, bistro, and business center.
“This is an exciting time for us, and we are looking forward to becoming a part of the Jefferson City community,” said Primrose Retirement Communities President BJ Schaefbauer. “It is obvious that there is a need for this kind of senior living opportunity in the area, and we are looking forward to partnering with the community to make this a reality.”
This will be the second Primrose in Missouri. The company acquired a community in Kansas City earlier this year.
