On Sep. 07, DMS joined the citizens of Salem at the groundbreaking for the new Mayor Jean A. Levesque Community Life Center. This long-anticipated civic center will not only serve as a hub for the Salem community, but will also play an integral part in the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood. A pleasure to work with Mayor Kim Driscoll and the rest of her team. Also good to see state representation from Senator Joan B. Lovely and State Representative Paul Tucker!

On Nov. 10, DMS Design LLC participated in a ceremony at Rockridge Retirement Community, a Deaconess Abundant Life Community in Northampton. Rockridge’s expansion includes Violette’s Crossing, with 25 independent rental apartments for those of moderate income, as well as the new Gardens Neighborhood for Memory Support on the building’s first floor. DMS Design LLC senior project manager Sid Silveira joined: Rockridge executive director Beth Vettori; Joseph Haavisto from Hutter Construction; Northampton mayor David Narkewicz; president and CEO of DALC Christopher Sintros; and Rockridge board of overseers chair John Young for this event.

Violette’s Crossing will allow residents to live independently in their own apartments while eliminating the chores often associated with home ownership. It will also give the residents an opportunity to become part of a supportive community. Extensive research suggests that there is a lack of quality housing for those earning moderate incomes. The Gardens Neighborhood for Memory Support will be updated and expanded to include 24 suites on the first floor and a private, resident-accessible, secure courtyard. By adding the additional apartments in Violette’s Crossing and additional suites in the Gardens, Rockridge will provide quality housing for seniors.

“We have been working with a great team to get us to this point, and we are excited for Rockridge to incorporate this unique component to unite their campus,” Silveira said.
