Segovia Attracts Snowbirds and Out-Of-Towners To Palm Desert, California Retirement Community

Segovia, a new senior residential community located in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area, announced that it is receiving strong interest and reservations from part-time residents with permanent homes outside the Coachella valley with interest coming from the pacific northwest and Canadian provinces.  The project is scheduled to open in 2010 and is being developed by Oakmont Senior Living and managed by Aegis Living.  The $60 million community is located on eight landscaped acres and the community consists of a two-story, 211,000 square foot main building with 117 residences with four separate casitas initially serving as model homes for the community.  The community has nine floor plans for one and two bedroom residences ranging in size from 822 to 1,821 square-feet available.

"We have taken reservations from seasonal valley residents whose primary homes are in Washington state and Oregon, as well as a number from Canada," said Steve Kregel, executive director at Segovia. "We’ve even had interest from as far away as Montreal. Word is getting out amongst seniors interested in living in Palm Desert as to the kind of community Segovia will be when it opens in 2010."
