Cottonwood Manor project update

The project is undergoing the planning stages right now,and is scheduled to be completed by fall of next year.

In the story ‘Cottonwood Manor project’ published in the Houston Today Oct. 5, 2016 issue, the building has been approved for demolish and replacement of the two independent living wings. The project is undergoing the planning stages right now,and is scheduled to be completed by fall of next year.

Cathryn Olmstead, Executive Director of Smithers Community Services Association, she said that at this time she has no new information about the Cottonwood Manor project to provide.

“Basically we’ll be taking down those two wings and putting up 14 to 16 independent living units. Right now I think that is where there is some confusion, because part of the building is assisted living, and part of the building is independent living.The independent people only pay for shelter, that is all that is provided. The assisted living [wing] will remain the same,”explained Olmstead.

So it is only the independent living wings that will be replaced in this project.

Olmstead said she does not know what these new modular units are going to look like yet. Everything is still in the planning stages.

“We’ve been given the go ahead to start networking,” said Olmstead.

Though the project is in its infancy, Olmstead said that they will be having another meeting within the next couple of months with the currents tenants at Cottonwood Manor to keep them update to date with the plans of this project.
