Shaker Pointe at Carondelet Wins the Architecture & Design Award for Best

Independent Living Facility

Senior Housing News honored the 55+ independent living community for its innovative

design and commitment to improving the lives of its residents

WATERVLIET, N.Y. – December 19, 2014 – Shaker Pointe at Carondelet, a non-profit,

55+ independent living community, announces its recognition as the best

independent living facility by Senior Housing News’ 2014 Architecture & Design

Awards. This national acknowledgment validates the local community’s dedication

to providing an active, engaged and positive atmosphere for its residents.

The annual award received over fifty nominations, but named only seven winners

that included Shaker Pointe. The panel of judges was comprised of architects and

senior living planners, who evaluated each entry based on design and aesthetics,

community integration, and amenities and lifestyle.

Since the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet first started developing Shaker Pointe,

they have aimed to provide residents with extraordinary amenities within a

thoughtful design. Included in the community is a fitness center and pool with

accompanying classes, meditation room, an activities studio for creative arts, choice

of food venues including a bistro, resident dining room and The Restaurant at the

Pointe, a library, an on-site doctor’s office and much more.

In addition to incorporating various living comforts, Shaker Pointe meticulously

assembled each building and living space to be eco-friendly. Its sustainable design

was LEED platinum certified earlier this year by the U.S. Green Building Council. As

construction to expand the community continues, the Sisters of St. Joseph will

remain committed to preserving the environment, and making design and

architecture innovations.

“We’re so honored to be recognized by Senior Housing News for the design of Shaker

Pointe at Carondelet,” said Sister Lauren Van Dermark and Sister Kay Ryan. “We’ve

spent years developing each element of the community to create a unique living

option for Capital Region seniors. Beyond offering all of the amenities, we want

Shaker Pointe to feel like their home.”

LeCesse Construction continues to develop Shaker Pointe at Carondelet, located at

One Bell Tower Drive in Watervliet, NY. More apartments, called Spirit Tree

Residences, are to be completed in 2015. Currently, the Carriage Residences, Doane

Brook Apartments, Courtyard Residences and Cottages are almost at capacity.
