Community leaders, representatives from Volunteers of America and others gathered earlier this month for the grand opening of Palmview, a health care expansion at Gulf Coast Village’s continuing care campus in Cape Coral, Fla.
Sponsored by Volunteers of America, Gulf Coast Village first broke ground on this expansion project in fall 2015. The $31 million expansion project includes 80 new assisted living units and 48 new memory care suites in a 130,980-square-foot, three-story structure.
The finished result is receiving rave reviews:
“We couldn’t be more proud that the vision is finally coming true,” Gulf Coast Village Executive Director Kevin Ahmadi told CapeCoral.com. “We set that vision out a couple of years ago and to see it begin to take shape is very rewarding.”
“This is something we are in dire need of in our city,” said Cape Coral Economic Development Manager Dana Brunett. “We have a large deficiency in assisted living facilities in Cape Coral. We have a couple more coming online over the next 18 months. It just shows that our city is growing and the amenities necessary to support that are coming online. This project and those like them are a critical aspect of our growth.”
“We wanted a wow factor,” said Volunteers of America Executive Vice President Wayne Olson. “Not only a facility to meet residents’ basic needs but a building people wanted to come to.”
Greystone served as development consultant on the Palmview expansion in addition to its role as management consultant at Gulf Coast Village.
