Erickson Holds Grand Opening for $300M CCRC in Florida

Erickson Senior Living has held a grand opening ceremony and ceremonial ribbon-cutting for Siena Lakes, a community it developed and manages in North Naples, Florida.

Workers are building the continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in phases. The project’s first phase includes a clubhouse and two independent living buildings with 175 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes.


The community’s second phase, which is now under construction, is planned to have two similar independent living buildings with 180 apartments for residents. Future planned work includes adding a continuing care neighborhood in the third phase for assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care services; and a fourth phase that would add another independent living building.

Bessolo Design Group was the project’s architect, while Kaufman Lynn Construction is working as the project’s general contractor.

Discovery Community in Oklahoma Unveils Renovations

Discovery Senior Living has debuted new renovations at Country Club At Woodland Hills, a senior living community in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


Remodelers gave a facelift to the community’s common areas, such as the dining and activities rooms, library and media center and outdoor patio. The project’s focal point was the work done on the community’s dining room, which was overhauled with new lighting, furniture, and a new color palette.

Discovery Design Concepts, an affiliate of Discovery Senior Living, planned and executed the community’s remodeling project.
