Friendship Village of Bloomington – Independent Living Bloomington, Minnesota
Friendship Village of Bloomington is a thriving retirement community which is expanding its Residential Living offerings. The new Residential Living building was positioned along an existing detention pond to take advantage of the views. The new apartment building is connected to the existing main entry pavilion through an enclosed pedestrian bridge to provide the desired connectivity and share amenity spaces with the remainder of the community. A two-story common space lounge is positioned on access with the connecting corridor providing an impressive view to the pond.
This development recalls the character of the surrounding environment by emphasizing the connection with water and utilizing natural materials on the façade. The views and walkway along the detention pond offer a wonderful exterior amenity for the residents.
