Cape Integrative Health and Townhouses is a two-building mixed-use development with healthcare offices on the ground level and 10 townhouse-style apartments above. The larger of the buildings is home to 3,900 SF offices for Cape Integrative Health. The second building includes a 2,500 SF performance and rehabilitation suite.
The project was the first multi-family housing development in Cape Elizabeth in about a decade, and brings needed housing options to the area. The facility evokes a coastal New England feel with craftsman style and detailing. The mixed-use building was a collaboration between WBRC’s commercial and healthcare design studios.
WBRC’s careful site design was key to the plan’s acceptance by the town planning board. The approved plan needed to meet Town Center standards and also provide a pleasing vista, as it will be one of the first properties visitors see when entering Cape Elizabeth’s Town Center. The site design augments existing trees and native vegetation with regionally-appropriate plantings, complementing well-designed parking, porous pavement, fencing, lighting, and walkways.
The project was developed by the husband and wife team behind Cape Integrative Health (CIH), formerly Cape Chiropractic and Acupuncture, a local healthcare practice. Dr. Zev Myerowitz Jr. is the director of chiropractic services and specializes in sports performance. Amber Myerowitz is the director of acupuncture services and specializes in traditional Chinese medicine.
In addition to providing new apartment homes for 10 families, the project will enable CIH to serve patients in a space more than triple the size of its previous facility.
