The Perfect Match of Needs and Philosophies
By 2020, the USA will have a shortage of more than 24,000 physicians. Maine in particular has had difficulty in attracting and retaining top medical talent. In response, a partnership was forged between Maine Medical Center and Tufts University School of Medicine to provide a unique medical program aimed at offering students the curriculum, skills, and first hand experience required for practicing rural medicine. The Maine Track curriculum will prepare and encourage these graduates to establish medical practices throughout Maine.

This is not a typical apartment building:
Known for our ability to create complementary real estate solutions, Developers Collaborative was eager to play a role in aiding the medical community. After months of research, meetings, and listening to key stakeholders; Developers Collaborative bought several properties adjacent to Maine Medical Center to create housing for the medical field.
As a smart growth development, Crescent Heights was designed to minimize the impact the increased number of medical students would have on the historic West End neighborhood. Solutions were created to reduce traffic flow, protect off-street parking spaces, and the housing market. Click here to see more details as to how Crescent Heights embodies the smart growth concept.
We believe developing Crescent Heights as a green apartment building perfectly complements the community’s philosophy and basic goals. From our point of view, there’s no better way to expand health care awareness of the issues of indoor air quality, sustainable building materials, and reduced carbon footprint than by demonstrating the possibilities to the future leaders in the medical field.
