First Phase Nearly Complete at ABHOW’s Los Altos

The Terraces at Los Altos is close to a significant landmark in its three-phase redevelopment: the opening of its new health center. This new health center includes a memory support community called “The Grove” and a skilled nursing center called “The Village.” Memory support is a new level of care at The Terraces; The Village is a replacement skilled nursing community.

Phase I is part of a $100 million redevelopment that will also include new independent living and assisted living. Once Phase I opens, the existing health center will be demolished and a new assisted living community called “The Lodge” constructed in its place. The third phase is scheduled to begin in early 2015 and will include 81 independent living units. American Baptist Homes of the West is sponsor of The Terraces at Los Altos. Greystone is serving as development consultant.
