Meadow Ridge
Land purchase, planning, development, and construction of a prestigious retirement community

Set high atop a wooded ridge in historic Redding, Connecticut, with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, Meadow Ridge has been described by New York Magazine as "one of the finest continuing care retirement communities in the New York metropolitan area." Senior Care Development acquired the 136-acre parcel in 1998 and, with over $100 million of financing secured through international banking giant, BNP Paribas, began construction of its first phase under the special purpose entity named Redding Life Care LLC. Redding Life Care was soon confronted with several lawsuits by neighbors hoping to block development. After 24 months spent working through legal issues and negotiating with neighbors to make sure that all of their concerns were adequately addressed, we were able to prevail in court by demonstrating the quality of our master plan and its harmony with the land. We were also able to expedite the necessary applications, rigorous zoning board hearings, and entitlements, a process that usually takes an average of two years. For the over 500 residents that soon filled every apartment residence, however, it was well worth the wait. The community they call home is without peer, and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
