Gulf Coast Village Opens Health Care Expansion

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.”

Masonic Homes of Kentucky Marks 150 Years With Growth

Masonic Homes of Kentucky (MHKY) has been serving the Bluegrass State since the close of the Civil War. That’s many decades of service and many lives touched. Today, the MHKY campus in Louisville is home to a variety of senior living and care options — and those options are expanding in 2017.

MHKY is in the process of adding two new communities to its campus — The Meadow and Grove Pointe. The Meadow will be a 122-unit independent living center that also includes an 80-seat movie theater, a 300-seat performance space, a café and other amenities. The Grove will be a 48-unit assisted living center.

Early this year, crews were working on framing for The Meadow and foundation placement for Grove Pointe. The full project is expected to be complete in summer 2018.

As construction proceeded, the MHKY family was celebrating its significant anniversary with a gala on the 82-acre Louisville campus. Louisville’s WLKY-TV was on hand to capture highlights from the celebration. See those highlights in the video player below, as well as aerial photos of construction on MHKY’s Louisville campus in the gallery at the bottom of this page. Greystone is proud to be a sponsor of MHKY’s 150th anniversary, as well as development consultant for its expansion.

Gulf Coast Village Accepting Reservations for Expansion

A $31 million, 128-unit expansion is close to opening at Gulf Coast Village’s continuing care campus in Cape Coral, Fla. Sponsored by Volunteers of America, Gulf Coast Village spent nearly three years planning this expansion, which includes both assisted living and memory support units. And construction of the expansion, called Palmview, has been taking place on the 36 acres adjacent to the existing Gulf Coast Village community for the past 18 months.

Now, in preparation for a March opening, the community is accepting reservations from those interested in living at Palmview. Once the Palmview project is complete and fully operating, Gulf Coast Village will take on a second phase that includes the $5.9 million transformation and renovation of existing assisted living units into skilled nursing units.

The Cape Coral Daily Breeze recently shared an update on progress at Gulf Coast Village. Executive Director Kevin Ahmadi said: “I couldn’t be more pleased to bring a state-of-the-art assisted living product to the Cape Coral market. Palmview will set the standard for all assisted living facilities.”

Greystone is serving as development consultant on the Palmview project, in addition to its role as management consultant at Gulf Coast Village.

Photos: See Repositioning Results at The Terraces at Los Altos

The end of a long-term repositioning project at ABHOW’s The Terraces at Los Altos has arrived, and the final results are spectacular. The three-phase project’s construction first started in the summer of 2012 when ABHOW chose to move forward with revitalization plans at one of its oldest communities.

The first phase of repositioning included new memory support and skilled nursing units. A second phase added assisted living and commons areas. And a third phase created 87 independent living units, more commons areas and a parking garage at the campus in Los Altos, Calif.

The campus now features a total of 105 independent living units, 30 assisted living units, 16 memory support suites and 30 skilled nursing beds. The repositioning kept the community’s buildings small by intention in order to reflect the location of the campus within a large-yet-intimate residential area.

The impact of repositioning at The Terraces at Los Altos was evident even before the project’s completion. It earned recognition as the Best Repositioning of 2015, according to Senior Housing News. Now that the project is fully complete, The Terraces at Los Altos will move forward as one of California’s premier Life Plan Communities.

Greystone served as development consultant throughout repositioning at The Terraces at Los Altos. See photos of the completed community in the gallery below. Learn more about The Terraces at Los Altos.

Legacy Pointe at UCF is expected to include 126 independent living units, 30 independent living cottages, 48 assisted living units, 32 memory support suites and 48 skilled nursing beds. Construction should begin in early 2019 with the project scheduled for completion and opening in summer of 2020.

Growth Continues at Masonic Homes of Kentucky

Louisville’s finest life plan community continues to grow thanks to a stellar brand reputation, strong demand and a mission that seeks to provide outstanding senior living options.

Masonic Homes of Kentucky broke ground this month on The Meadow, a 122-unit independent living community that will include an 80-seat movie theater, a 300-seat performance space, a café and other amenities.

“When we take on a project like The Meadow, we do so with our key values in mind: growth, innovation, remarkable service and passion above all,” said MHKY President and CEO Gary Marsh in an Insider Louisville story.

The Meadow is nearing 90 percent in presales, which is the same marketing success that MHKY has enjoyed with previous projects on its 82-acre Louisville campus. An upcoming bond issue is expected to finance the $44 million needed for The Meadow plus an additional $14 million for Grove Pointe, an assisted living center also planned for MHKY’s Louisville campus.

Greystone is serving as marketing and development consultant on The Meadow project. Other project team members include Reese Design Collaborative, Paul Mattingly/Congleton-Hacker Constructors and AG Architecture.
