Ribbon-cutting at new Keystone Place on June 23, 2015

The first project in Bourne’s Downtown Growth Incentive Zone was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in July. Keystone Place at Buzzards Bay, a senior living community, was ready for residents about 15 months after a February 2014 ground breaking.

The four-story building includes 106 market‐rate residential units: 31 for independent living, 55 for assisted living and 20 for memory care. The development also includes both underground and above ground parking, several dining rooms and kitchens, indoor hospitality areas and outdoor amenities, and is next to accessible paths in the new downtown conservation area leading to the Cape Cod Canal.

The building is designed to conform with the Downtown District Zoning By-laws that were adopted by an overwhelmingly positive Town Meeting vote and with the architectural standards and guidelines also adopted by an overwhelmingly positive Town Meeting vote. It has been designed to meet the Town’s interest in smart growth principles and low impact design.

The project is expected to bring about 100 new year-round jobs to Bourne’s Downtown, increase tax revenues to the Town and bring visitors – relatives and friends of the residents – who will purchase goods and services.
