Maplewood Senior Living to Grow Footprint in Connecticut

Maplewood Senior Living has plans to inflate its presence in southern New England.


The provider plans to break ground on a 34-unit expansion for its community in Darien, Connecticut, in late summer 2017.

The expansion will increase Maplewood at Darien’s 66-unit community to 97 units. The interior design will “carry the same Newport Inn style of elegance and sophistication seen throughout the entire community,” a press release reads.

Maplewood also recently closed on a 27-acre parcel of land in Southport, Connecticut, where it will start construction on a 98-unit assisted living and memory care community this summer.


That community, Maplewood at Southport, will feature fireplaces, libraries, lobbies, a great room, display kitchens, and a salon and spa for residents and visitors. The community will also feature terraced gardens alongside walking trails and seating areas in a 13-acre conservation area.

LGBTQ-Focused Community to Open in Houston

The Montrose, a community for LGBTQ seniors, is set to open in Houston.

According to the plan that was first reported by Houston Press, the 122-unit community will come equipped with a diner, a health clinic, a coffee shop, a dog park and a vegetable garden.

Though the community is aimed at LGBTQ seniors, it will also accept straight residents.

Belmont Senior Living Targets Fort Lauderdale

Houston’s Belmont Senior Living is looking to open a new community in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The provider is scheduled to start construction this summer on its first Florida project, a 204-unit community with independent living, assisted living and memory care services, reports the Sun Sentinel. Belmont’s community would offer residents chef-prepared meals, a bistro, patios, a fitness center, a heated saltwater swimming pool, a full-service salon and a movie room.

If all goes according to plan, the community will open in 2019.

‘Upscale Life Plan Community’ Coming to California

A new senior living community is coming to San Luis Obispo, California. Construction crews with Villagio Senior Living are scheduled to break ground on the Villaggio at San Luis Obispo by 2019, according to an announcement.

When it opens, the community will offer 366 assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing units and such amenities as farm-to-table meals, a wellness and fitness center, movie theater, library and multiple restaurants.

Villaggio at San Luis Obispo also will feature programming that includes education, recreational, entertainment and spiritual activities and events.

$72 Million Senior Housing Project Planned Near Minneapolis

Local officials recently gave the go-ahead to a new mixed-unit senior living campus in the Minneapolis suburb of Stillwater.

The Lakes at Stillwater, a roughly $72 million mixed-unit senior living campus, is set to open at the end of 2018 after a three-phase development process, according to a press release.

Construction on The Lodge, a 139-unit independent, assisted living and memory care community, is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2017. Phase two is slated to include 30 independent living villas that will be accompanied by 70 independent senior living apartments in the third phase of the project.

Amenities at the forthcoming community will include multiple dining venues, intergenerational programming, a wellbeing center, creative arts, nature-based therapeutics and a fireside bar lounge.

Intergenerational Living & Health Care is the community’s owner, and The Goodman Group, a Chaska, Minnesota-based company, is its operator.

Age-Restricted Community Coming to Southern California

Master developer Foremost Companies is plotting out a new community in Southern California that will include housing for people 55 years or older.

The first phase of the new community, Terramor, opened in Corona, California, in May, according to a press release. Del Webb is building the community’s first two neighborhoods, Cortina and Ardena, where it plans to construct 240 single-family homes for buyers ages 55 and older.

“Pre-sales for Del Webb’s two communities started April 22 and a remarkable 14 homes have been sold to date,” said Chris Edgar, Division President for Del Webb in Southern California. “Between the two sold-out informational sales seminars and queries from our interest lists, these two actively sought neighborhoods are proving the demand for 55+ housing in this region, and are a testament to the community as a whole.”
