Mary Taylor House at The Hickman

Mary Taylor House represents an expansion of The Hickman, a Quaker-sponsored assisted living facility, to include independent living. Sixty new apartments for low to moderate income seniors are now available in this three-and-a-half-story wood frame building. The building is clad with a variety of materials, including stone, HardiePanel, and brick in a pattern that matches the original building. The most striking feature of the new construction is a 70-foot bridge that spans East Biddle Street to connect the indepenent and assisted living buildings.

The project boasts a library with wainscoting and fireplace, a large management area with offices, a future commercial kitchen, a terraced garden and courtyard, and a fitness and wellness room. The 16,000 sf building footprint was capped entirely with a green roof with stone walkways.
