Set to open in 2023 in Florham Park, N.J., The Delaney is poised to add a contemporary touch to senior living communities, reminiscent of many residential community designs. As part of the master-planned community, the Green at Florham Park, the Delaney will provide living, assisted living and memory care for residents across 9.8 beautiful acres of lush landscaping and expansive green spaces designed to promote active lifestyles for residents.
Also included in the design is a centrally located clubhouse with an expansive two-story gallery, as well as a dining terrace with an indoor/outdoor bar that overlooks the main courtyard within the community. These modern amenities come juxtaposed with more traditional architecture, provided by firm Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners (Lambertville, N.J.), with interior design firm StudioSix5 (Austin, Texas) also leading the project.
At the clubhouse in particular, one can glimpse the exposed ceiling beams, crafted from natural wood. The high ceilings of the locale not only open up the space for congregation, but also open it up for natural light to spill in and fill everything. A partially brick façade further adds to the warm, natural tones of the building.
Encompassing the Next Generation of Senior Living
The Delaney at The Green aims to provide a wealth of life-enriching experiences to the next generations of seniors and their family members through friendly, residential-like design, preferred location just 25 miles outside of Manhattan and a wealth of amenities.
In addition to the clubhouse, The Delaney, once completed, will have multiple dining venues (including a pub with full bar, private dining rooms, and a bistro), two multipurpose rooms, a club room/library, wellness area with a fitness center, theater/classroom and an arts and crafts studio.
The Delaney also plans to incorporate activities that capitalize on its community-driven design. Gardening, yoga, woodworking, art, The Delaney’s list of programs encapsulates a broad range of interests and hobbies that allow seniors to connect to connect with other members and local areas of interest for further enrichment.
