Pending final approvals, a development project is expected to begin in the coming months with a $14 million three-story senior community home building that will offer assisted living, memory care and independent living apartments.

Trilogy Management Services and DMK Development Group have announced plans to partner for the development of their next senior living community, with officials saying “families searching for a senior lifestyle community that perfectly blends compassionate care with clinical expertise will have a new option in Owensboro.”

DMK Development Group has secured approximately 4.73 acres of land for purchase in Gateway Commons on Calumet Trace (located across from the new Daviess County Middle School site).

Construction could start as soon as the first quarter of 2021 with completion as early as Spring 2022. 

The project will represent a total community investment of $14 million and create more than 200 construction jobs, as well as 60-70 permanent jobs once the community is open. 

The new community will be a three-story building that will feature 38 assisted living, 20 memory care, and 48 independent living apartments in a mixture of studio and one- and two-bedroom suites, and amenities will be as varied as the seniors who will call the community home. 

Inside, the community will include a full-service bistro, multiple dining areas complete with an on-site chef, an activity room designed to accommodate everything from art projects to game nights, a beauty and  barber salon, library, and a fitness center. 

Outside, seniors and their guests can enjoy landscaped courtyards, a putting green, lush gardens, and more. 

“At Trilogy, we take great pride in providing resident-centered, coordinated care,” said Leigh Ann Barney, President and CEO of Trilogy Management Services. “This means that our campuses contain top-of-the-line equipment and technology designed to support a wide range of needs, and that care is delivered by highly skilled staff members. Of course, underlying this commitment to clinical excellence is our culture of compassion. This is what truly makes a Trilogy community a place where family comes to live.” 

David Kitchen, founder and CEO of DMK Development Group, said they identified a growing need in Owensboro for a senior community that will provide quality, hospitality-based senior care without giving up the luxuries of home.

“The innovative design and hospitality-oriented care of our communities give aging Americans what they want today – more services, amenities and the attention they deserve,” he said.
