How is Shaker Place Different during COVID-19?
Shaker Place has recently completed a major renovation that added almost 77,000 square feet including additional common areas space and additional private rooms. The increase in living space allows residents to still gather while remaining socially distant from other residents during this unprecedented time. All guidelines are strictly enforced regarding social distancing and masks.
In addition to the many socially distant common areas are the spacious resident rooms. All resident rooms were designed with space and privacy in mind. Our private and even our bi-axel rooms allow separation for safety and include Jack and Jill sinks to ensure distance.
