CLIENT: The Kenney
Because of its historic preservation and landmark expertise, NK was selected to help The Kenney Retirement Community navigate the landmark designation process for its 1907 building in a way that would allow for the facility’s future expansion. Over the decades the original Georgian Revival structure, known as the Seaview Building, had been overtaken in a piecemeal fashion by newer buildings, and further expansion required demolition of the heritage structure. In 2009 the building’s exterior and part of the adjacent landscaped yard were declared a landmark. Since then, NK has assisted the design architect in creating several alternative master plans, including a proposal to move the structure several hundred feet across the property. NK and its development partner Euclid Development are advisors assisting in ongoing expansion plans.
