Johnston, RI Briarcliffe Manor, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center and memory care assisted living provider, has broken ground on an assisted living residence known as The Preserve. The Preserve is the latest development phase of the continual transition of Briarcliffe Manor’s campus into a full-service Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC).

Briarcliffe has teamed with D.F. Pray General Contractors, NEMD Architects, and DiPrete Engineering to design and build The Preserve. The new 49,500 s/f facility will feature assisted living residences.

The expansion includes a 66-unit assisted living residence located north of Briarcliffe Manor and 84 new parking spaces located on Old Pocasset Rd. 

DiPrete Engineering is providing site/civil engineering, permitting, surveying, and construction administration.

The Preserve at Briarcliffe Manor is expected to be complete in April 2021 with a projected construction cost of $13 million.
