Classic Residence by Hyatt in Highlands Ranch Celebrates Grand Opening

Classic Residence by Hyatt, a national leader in luxury senior living, today celebrates the grand opening of the company’s newest continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. The community welcomed its first residents in July of this year.  The $150 million dollar development, a “Type A” continuing care retirement community, is the first of its kind in Colorado. The 23.5-acre community, located just south of Denver, has 252 independent living residences. The Care Center, which will open in 2009, has 16 suites for assisted living, 12 suites for Alzheimer’s/memory support and 24 suites for skilled nursing care services available on site to residents. In this ideal location for a luxury living community, older adults enjoy views of Mt. Evans and close proximity to two medical centers, the airport, Rocky Mountains, and over 80 miles of walking trails for outdoor enthusiasts. Resident homes are spacious and range from 923 to 2,086 square feet, with entrance fees for the community ranging from $308,000 to $885,400.


“We are thrilled to open the doors of our newest community,” said Randal J. Richardson, president, Classic Residence by Hyatt. “And we are very proud to be the first company to offer Type A life care in the state of Colorado, which means our residents have quality care on site when and if they should need it, and with virtually no increase in their monthly fees. That allows the people who live in our communities to concentrate on pursuing their passions, whatever those may be, because they have greater peace of mind knowing that they have planned wisely for the future, which is so important in this economic climate.”
