Copper Trace Expansion Underway

CarDon & Associates is proud to announce an $8.6 million expansion of our Westfield community, Copper Trace, located on the northeast corner of 146th Street and Ditch Road at 1250 West 146th Street.

The complex opened in 2015 with 36 assisted living apartments as well as four neighborhoods, each with 26 skilled nursing suites. The first phase of the complex cost $19 million, with a 116,000-square-foot building on approximately 16 acres.

Planning for the addition began in July of 2022 with construction starting in late September of 2023. Architectural and interior design firm Studio Three Design developed the look of the expansion while long-running renovation company Summit Construction is overseeing the building process.

The expansion will more than double the number of assisted living apartments, with the 40 new units consisting of 27 one-bedroom, 6 large one-bedroom and 7 two-bedroom residences.

“This expansion will comfortably accommodate the growing needs of seniors in Westfield and surrounding communities,” said CarDon President and CEO Kent Rodgers. “It offers opportunities for seniors who want to remain self-sufficient with the assurance of assistance when needed, as well as individuals coming out of short-term rehabilitation who might benefit from assisted living care.”

Other benefits of the expansion include such new amenities as a renovated dining room, coffee bar, fitness room and new lounge/activity area. This will add 37,500 square feet to the main campus building.

The assisted living apartments are expected to be open and available by late summer 2024.
