The 225-unit Springs at Tanasbourne, designed by Myhre Group Architects, recently opened in Tanasbourne, in Hillsboro.

The development has 283,000 square feet of living space, as well as 6,000 square feet of retail. The congregate care retirement community is on a five-acre site.

Congregate care retirement communities, also known as life care communities, give increasing levels of services as residents age and require them. They have a variety of residence types, including independent living, assisted living and nursing home care in a concentrated geographical area. The Springs at Tanasbourne offers the option of a separate condo unit.

Myhre Group Architects was responsible for the architectural and interior design of the senior living community. The upper floors of the four-story development offer mountain views, as well as views of a private courtyard. At the center of the development is a community space with a restaurant, bistro, theater, salon, and informal gathering areas.

Ray Yancey, a principal with Myhre Group, said the buildings have a modern craftsman style.

"It's an architectural style that people feel comfortable with and understand," he said. "It's more approachable. We wanted people to feel at home."

The estimated total construction cost of the project was $35 million.

Todd Construction was the general contractor for the project. KPFF was the structural engineer, CSA was the civil engineer, GreenWorks was the landscape engineer and MEP handled design/build responsibilities.
