For more than six decades, Oakwood Lutheran Senior Ministries’ mission has been to help older adults lead lives of growth, happiness, health, and security. Located less than 10 miles northeast from Downtown Madison, Wisconsin, the Oakwood Village campus is open and spacious, with 18 acres of maintained landscaping and gardening with open views.
Given the popularity of the Prairie Ridge campus and a growing waitlist, Oakwood Village embarked on an expansion that included 73 new apartment homes. The project consists of three five-story towers, connected via 2nd floor indoor walkways. Units range between 950 and 1,450 square feet and include screened-in balconies, a first for the Prairie Ridge facility. All apartment homes feature large windows, and residents share a floor with no more than five other units to add to the desire for increased privacy.
To enhance the community feel, each of the three towers is centered on an outdoor courtyard to be enjoyed by all campus residents. Raised garden beds, a fire pit, and outdoor recreational activities are all amenity possibilities for the courtyard. Underground parking is provided as well.
