The Moorings is a nonprofit community for people aged 65 and older that accommodates independent-living, assisted-living and skilled-nursing units. For this project, contractors added 29 condo-style independent living units to the campus in three buildings ranging from three to five stories.

The Moorings Park Buildings project, led by Manhattan Construction Group, won an Award of Merit in the Residential category of this year's Best Projects contest.

Interior finishes and fixtures are unique for each residence. The exteriors also feature a variety of finishes, including cast-in-place concrete, concrete masonry units, stucco and architectural precast stone. LEED-for-Homes certification is being sought for each individual unit.

Amenities added to the campus include a wooden bridge that crosses a central lake, tiered fountains and an elevated rooftop garden.
