The Douglas Company Completes $44 Million Harper’s Station Luxury Retirement Community

Holland, Ohio, July 6, 2022 – Harper’s Station is a new state-of-the-art senior living community in the Gainesville, Virginia area. The 55+ retirement community offers spacious, well-appointed independent living, assisted living, and memory care apartments along with residential cottage homes and a wide variety of amenities and services. The Douglas Company served as general contractor for the $44 million upscale senior living community.

Co-Developers, Bourne Financial Group and Sage Development Group, selected John Marc Tolson Architecture to design the 192-unit community. The 244,400 square-foot Harper’s Station consists of a 3-story main building and three villa buildings comprising seven units. The amenity-rich community offers a variety of options for residents to enjoy, including a heated indoor swimming pool, grand dining room, coffee shop, bistro, library, salons, fitness center, game room, yoga studio, putting green, exterior fireplace, fire pits, and a gazebo. Architecturally, all buildings provide 360º architectural treatments that include high-quality building materials such as brick and stone veneer, Hardie Board, and decorative metal treatments. 

“The Douglas Company team is honored to bring this first-class senior living community to the Gainesville area after two years of construction,” said Connor Casper, project manager at The Douglas Company. “Harper’s Station is truly a unique development that provides seniors with a safe, resort-style environment to meet their every need.”

The advanced retirement community features all-inclusive, fine dining, daily social hours, wellness programs, complimentary housekeeping, and a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities. From life-enrichment seminars to cooking, fitness and health classes, live music and entertainment, movies, and arts and crafts, there is always an activity to discover. The community is also pet-friendly, so pets are welcome to move in with their humans.
