Project outcome

A Lendlease community is about more than houses we provide. It’s about providing a community living experience that improves the quality of life for our service members and families. At FDMCH, we provide several resident-focused programs and events to help us do just that.

Community services and amenities include:
  • Seasonal front and side lawn care
  • Self-help items
  • Trash and recycling pick-up
  • 4 community centers with fitness centers and indoor playgrounds
  • Timbers Lodge with movie theater, grilling pavilion and more
  • Dog parks, splash parks and skate parks
  • Sledding hill
  • On-site maintenance
  • Pet-friendly
  • Extensive walking and biking trail system
  • 43 community playgrounds
Community giving and events:
  • Turkeys for Troops - Partnered with Visions Hotels and local grocers Hannaford, Tops, Price Chopper and Wal-Mart to donate 200 Thanksgiving meals to service members and families on Fort Drum.
  • Virtual Events - This past year, we have hosted monthly virtual and low contact events to ensure we stayed connected to our residents, provided support, and spread joy during the many challenging times faced due to the pandemic.
  • Making Strides Against Breast Cancer - The FDMCH team raises money throughout the year and participates in the walk each fall.
  • Military Homefront - Through the Lendlease (US) Community Fund, over $10,000 is distributed annually to community and military programs across Fort Drum.

 

I love my new home and the neighborhood. The neighbors are awesome, my house is bigger than I expected but I love it. I love the experience of being in Fort Drum New York, and I can't wait to see where else the military life will be taking myself and my family.
