St. Paul's Plaza Senior Housing
St. Paul's Plaza, a senior living community, in Chula Vista, consists of a multi-wing building which includes 108 assisted living units and 46 memory care units, for a total of 154 units with common areas. The facility features unique and innovative Memory Care apartments based on The Green House Project concept. This design replaces the more traditional nursing home model with one that allows residents more privacy and control over their lives by creating smaller communities or "homes". Each home includes 10 private rooms with bathrooms as well as a shared living room, kitchen and open dining area. St. Paul's age in place model offers each resident different levels of care so they may remain in the same community, even if their care level requirement increases.
Pella provided a variety of material and product types for this project. Most of the windows and sliding doors were Encompass by Pella® single-hung, fixed, and sliding windows which were used throughout the campus. In addition, a variety of Pella 350 Series® vinyl windows were used at some of the building corners where higher wind pressures required windows with higher design pressure ratings. And Pella Architect Series® aluminum-clad wood windows and doors were used in some of the common spaces where a stained wood interior was desired. Pella 350 Series windows are no longer offered, however Pella 250 Series windows offer many of the same features and options and are a great substitute. Pella utilized to the full extent the product materials available, along with a variety of product types to complete this multi-wing building in California.
