Linden Ponds management, along with staff members, residents, vendors, and local elected officials, marked the beginning of construction on Willard Square with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the end of last year.

In December, Linden Ponds broke ground on its ninth residence building, Willard Square, which is expected to open in 2018. 

At present, about 1,200 people live on Linden Ponds’ 108-acre campus. Nearly 100% of the apartment homes at the community are currently occupied, which is why management decided the time was right for expansion.

“Linden Ponds’ occupancy continues to rise, and our expanding customer base has influenced our decision to move forward with construction,” says Christine Hansen, director of sales at the Hingham, Mass., Erickson Living community. “We are very excited to be able to announce the addition of Willard Square and bring the Erickson Living lifestyle to more people.”

Living space

Willard Square will be six stories high and almost 157,000 square feet, adding 104 new independent living apartment homes to Linden Ponds. 

Cutler Associates, a facility solutions provider that offers planning, architecture, and construction services, heads up the project. Cutler has been working with senior living clients for more than 30 years and has completed 60 projects in the sector. 

In addition to many new, open floor plans, Willard Square will also feature additional common area spaces to accommodate the growing number of activities and clubs. 

“Almost all of the apartment homes will feature at least one-and-a-half bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, and much more,” Hansen says.

Priority list members will be able to start reserving homes in Willard Square this spring.
