As part of DWC’s strategic foray into the business of senior living development, DWC is thrilled to announce the breaking ground of its first assisted living and memory care project.
“This kind of development feels good to me,” says Doug Wilson of his 4.5-acre site set to break ground later this month for highly amenitized senior housing in the city of Chula Vista.
The company’s pursuit of upcoming senior living projects stems from our realization of a strategic opportunity based upon growing demographics and investor demand. It is often cited that 10,000 baby boomers are turning 65 each day, and in the coming decades, DWC is committed to developing residences that will house and help care for this growing population.
“We’ve been researching the senior residential business for years, and we recognize the huge wave of demand on the immediate horizon. We are proud to partner with a first-class, experienced operator, Milestone Retirement Communities, LLC, on what we plan will be just the first of our new ventures in the senior housing market.”
Located on one of the final pieces of developable land in Chula Vista’s Otay Ranch (Village V), the DWC senior living community will offer 111 units of contemporary living, including 85 apartments for assisted living and 26 units for memory care.
Designed in California Heritage architecture, the complex will include state-of-the-art amenities and services, including a 7 am to 7 pm full-service, white tablecloth restaurant, outdoor dining, community gardens, courtyards, bistro and juice bar, library, fitness area, reading and game rooms, beauty and barber shops, and a regularly scheduled onsite Nurse Practitioner. Completion is scheduled for mid-2018.
