Douglas Wilson Companies Launches its Senior Housing Brand with the Opening of Sienna at Otay Ranch
This month the first new residents of Sienna at Otay Ranch will be moving in to their new digs, where upmarket amenities and great food are on the menu.
The $32 million, 110,000 square-foot project offers a total of 127 beds, with 85 apartments for assisted living and 26 for memory care. The community will offer a 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. full-service, white tablecloth restaurant, outdoor dining, community garden, courtyards, bistro and juice bar, library, fitness area, reading and game rooms, a beauty salon and barbershop, and a regularly scheduled onsite Nurse Practitioner.
Sienna at Otay Ranch is just the first in a series of long-term holds for Douglas Wilson Companies, whose current business platforms include a strategic focus on the needs and opportunities associated with the demographics of America’s aging population.
“With our new brand of senior properties – as well as our new Legacy Assets Management division – Douglas Wilson Companies is dealing head-on with the needs and aspirations of the country’s aging population,” said Douglas Wilson, company founder and CEO.
“We call it the silver tsunami for the fact that by 2035, older adults will outnumber kids for the first time in u.s. history.”
DWC is joined in this new joint venture by Milestone Retirement Communities, considered a gold standard operator in the industry, who will handle all management responsibilities.
Located at 1290 Santa Rosa Drive in the Otay Ranch neighborhood of Chula Vista, Sienna is envisioned as the first in an ongoing portfolio of senior properties. DWC has announced its intention to build more of these upmarket senior communities over the next decade and grow the brand into the future.
