Groundbreaking set for $36M Frontier community

Construction on the Pavilion in Tecolote Canyon, a $36 million assisted living and memory care community in San Diego, California, is set to begin next month following a groundbreaking ceremony on Aug. 11.


The community will accommodate approximately 94 residents in the Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego.

Ahead of construction, salvaged beams and lumber will be donated to the Freedom Ranch for Heroes, a project that gives veterans a place to learn new skills and enjoy the outdoors.

The building will be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified and will feature both assisted living and memory care services.

Frontier currently has a portfolio of more than 130 communities across the country, with home offices in Portland, Oregon and Dallas, Texas.
