Above and below: Architectural renderings of the new McLean Independent Living Community.

The McLean Life Plan Community has moved forward with plans to construct a residential building adjacent to the current Burkholder building in the McLean Village, which overlooks beautiful Hop Meadow Country Club. New independent living apartments, many with striking golf course views, and a host of first-class amenities, will enhance the senior living and health care community’s 125-acre campus. Preliminary groundwork has begun and construction is expected to be completed mid-2022. Applications are currently being accepted.

Named after Senator George McLean’s wife, Juliette Goodrich, The Goodrich will include 55 beautiful maintenance-free apartments with bright, open floor plans and the latest in architectural design. The apartments will include one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 700 to 1,470 square feet.

In addition to the residential floors, almost one quarter of the building will be dedicated to a full array of first-floor amenities, including a suite of wellness and fitness spaces, indoor and outdoor restaurant-style dining venues, and a contemporary Performing Arts Center complete with a raised stage and seating for 180. The Goodrich will offer stunning views of Hop Meadow Country Club golf course and provide residents with secure underground parking.   

The Burkholder building will be upgraded along with the new construction. Additional wellness activities and programming will complement the existing calendar. McLean residents also enjoy a social membership to Hop Meadow Country Club giving them exclusive access to dining and events in the Club House, as well as the outdoor pool, tennis and golf.

Throughout the planning and design phase, McLean worked closely with One Point Partners to provide strategic planning direction and SFCS, Inc. a nationally-recognized architectural and design firm. C.E. Floyd was selected as the general contractor and financing is made available through tax-exempt bonds issued by Connecticut Health and Educational Facilities Authority (CHEFA).
