Immanuel Lutheran Communities Finishes Independent Living Addition to CCRC in Montana

KALISPELL, Mont. — Immanuel Lutheran Communities has completed a 58,000-square-foot independent living expansion at its continuing care retirement community in Kalispell, which it claims as the only CCRC in Northwest Montana. 

Known as The Villas at Buffalo Hill, the project added 36 units to the larger community. A grand opening will be held Saturday, Nov. 3.

“We have been expanding and renovating in phases over the last few years, including the goal to significantly grow the number of our independent living residences to meet the evolving senior demographic,” said Jason Cronk, the company’s CEO.

The new community also features the Wooden Nickel Bistro and Lounge with coffee bar and outdoor café dining, the Claremont Restaurant, and a variety of other services and amenities.

Swank Enterprises built the expansion, which MMW and CJMW Architects designed. Sales and marketing services are provided by Solutions Advisors. Sawgrass Partners provided development advisory and financial planning services.
