KIRKWOOD, MO-Ashfield Active Living and Wellness Communities Inc., in partnership with Greystone Communities Inc., is replacing a worn-out hospital with a $179 million new senior living complex here. The venture is demolishing the former St. Joseph medical complex, which relocated to Fenton, MO last year. Ashfield is a wholly-owned corporation of Wichita, KS-based Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America Inc., which has 17 senior living communities in Missouri and Kansas.

Project general manager Paric, based in St. Louis, and Environmental Operations Inc. will complete the $3 million demolition of the old hospital that sits on 17 acres. The new complex will include 243 independent living homes, 30 assisted living apartment homes, 15 memory support apartments and a health center that includes 34 private and four semi-private skilled nursing rooms. Construction should start in May, with initial move-ins beginning in September 2011.
