Construction on a new assisted living center consisting of 68 units on 4.8 acres of land has begun Mequon. This senior living community at 11900 N. Port Washington Road, called Lumia Mequon, is a joint venture between Wauwatosa-based Matter Development and Milwaukee-based Three Leaf Partners (which includes Milwaukee Bucks player Pat Connaughton).

Koru Health, a Wauwatosa-based senior living company, will operate the facility, which is scheduled to be open in 2023.

“Mequon seniors want boutique-level quality with the highest supportive care in a dignified and elevated setting, and their adult children feel strongly about locations closely linked to their daily lives and routines, so this is an important project that meets the market,” said Aaron Matter, chief executive officer of Matter Development.

Lumia Mequon will include assisted living, memory care and unique specialty care suites. The facility will also include a bocce court, “The Canopy” club room, and other social and recreational activities. Special services include a dining program, nurse-supervised staff, assistance with personal activities, and higher levels of specialized care.

“Our approach to this team’s first development, Evin at Oconomowoc, proved to be very desirable to seniors and their adult children and we want to continue that approach here in Mequon,” said Andy Lange, president of Koru Health. “Mequon welcomed this project with open arms, and we look forward to building a presence here as both a community of choice for seniors, and an employer of choice.”

The architect for the project is Milwaukee-based Plunkett Raysich Architects and the general contractor is Milwaukee-based Catalyst Construction.
