Project plans for Somerby of Santa Rosa Beach include 52 assisted living and 24 memory care apartments located on a site that encompasses six acres of land at the intersection of Highway 98 and West Hewett Road.

The community will feature “lushly” landscaped courtyards, exercise walking trails, water features and broad boardwalks, as well as amenities such as chef-styled dining with patio options, wellness areas featuring a medical clinic, fitness room, physical therapy facilities and state-of-the-art hydrotherapy and aerobics pools.

Also included will be a library, computer center, recreation room and a day spa equipped with manicure and pedicure stations.

Somerby of Santa Rosa Beach will be the sixth Somerby senior living community.

For the second project, the expansion of Somerby of Peachtree City—which opened last year—plans include developing 12 villas and 100 independent living apartments in a four-story building.

Phase II of this project will break ground on a 13-acre site adjacent to the existing Somerby of Peachtree City, and is anticipating a groundbreaking this summer.

In addition to these two projects currently underway, Dominion’s Principal and CEO Al Worthington says the company plans to bring Somerby communities to Nashville and Sandy Springs, Georgia.

The Terraces of Phoenix CCRC Completes $1.2 Million Expansion

The Terraces of Phoenix recently completed construction on a $1.2 million expansion project that includes a large performance center, new dining and fitness area.

The Viva Center is a 25,000-square-foot commons area that houses these areas available for resident use.

Residents raised approximately $500,000 through donations, auctions, estate sales and social events to help with project costs.

The completed expansion is the latest development for The Terraces of Phoenix, which features 217 residential living residences that include onsite healthcare, assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing care.

The community is managed by ABHOW.

The Samarkand CCRC Dedicates, Opens Resident Center

The Samarkand, a faith-based CCRC operated by Covenant Retirement Communities, officially dedicated a 9,527-square-foot, two-story building this week.

The LifeCenter building is intended to be the hub of resident activity at the senior living community located in Santa Barbara, CA.

Designed by Kilburn Architects LLC of Seattle, Washington, the LifeCenter building also drew from resident input as part of its design process.

Unique for this development is the fitness center located on the second floor, when usually, due to the weight of the equipment, these facilities are located on the ground floor.

Residens and the architect both wanted to offer those using the fitness facility views of the mountains, so Kilburn mitigated weight/noise issues and put the fitness center on the second floor with an indoor/outdoor cafe and a wellness clinic.
