Lifespace Prepares to Open 21-Unit Expansion at Friendship Village of Bloomington in Minnesota

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Lifespace Communities plans to open a healthcare center expansion at Friendship Village of Bloomington later this month.

The project adds 16 assisted living apartment homes and five memory care suites to the senior living community, bringing the total communitywide capacity to 42 assisted living apartments and 32 memory care suites. The three-story building is equipped with a secure memory care courtyard.

This phase is part of a larger $114.5 million communitywide expansion and redevelopment initiative. The overall project also includes a new independent living building with 93 apartments and a new skilled nursing building with 66 suites.

Minneapolis-based Kraus-Anderson served as general contractor, while SAS Architects, based in Northbrook, Illinois, executed the health center’s architectural design. Friendship Village holds a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
