James River Nurseries recently completed the landscaping for a new Senior Living Community/Memory Care called The Pearl at Watkins Centre.

Our favorite part of the project was creating a courtyard that will provide the residents a secure outdoor space, allowing them to get some fresh air, perhaps a little exercise and give them the opportunity for social interaction.  We also hope it provides a peaceful area for family members who come to visit and are dealing with the stresses of having an ailing loved one.

Here's a little information on the facility (in their own words):
"The Pearl at Watkins Centre Memory Care Community offers compassionate care for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's and the various forms of dementia.  The Pearl at Watkins Centre is comprised of caring professionals who offer industry leading services and accomodations for seniors who require memory care services.  Spacious living quarters, restaurant level cuisine, and exceptional care are all available at The Pearl at Watkins Centre, where we cultivate an atmosphere for seniors to live, love, and thrive."

The Pearl at Watkins Centre is located in Midlothian, Virginia, just 15 minutes west of Richmond.  For further information, please visit  their website.

James River Nurseries was proud to be selected by W.M. Jordan as landscape contractor for the Gladding Residence Center at VCU.  The new 12-story, 360,000 square foot residence hall is located on the VCU campus facing Monroe Park and will house approximately 1500 first year students.

Scheduled to open in the fall of 2018, this first-of-its kind project at VCU was possible due to a public-private partnership with the American Campus Communities.

At James River Nurseries, we're fond of saying we work with some of the best builders, developers and general contractors this town has to offer.  This project was no exception.

We'd like to congratulate W.M. Jordan, general contractor on the project, for recently being named Mid-Atlantic Contractor of the year by Engineering News Record (ENR), the leading publication for the engineering and construction industry.
