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.

Gulf Coast Village Expansion 50 Percent Complete

See progress at Gulf Coast Village, where sponsor Volunteers of America is adding a new health care center to include 80 assisted living units and 48 memory support suites. A second phase of the project calls for redevelopment of the existing skilled nursing center, which will add 20 beds for a total of 105.

Construction is now 50 percent complete. About 120 workers are on site each day, with that number set to climb to 150 in the next two months. Work should end in January 2017 with occupancy set for March 2017. The Phase II skilled nursing redevelopment will begin following occupancy of Phase I.

Located in Cape Coral, Fla., Gulf Coast Village first opened in 1989. In addition to serving as development consultant on this expansion project, Greystone is also management consultant at GCV.

This 130,980-square-foot expansion at Gulf Coast Village will be called Palmview. Gulf Coast Village Executive Director Kevin Ahmadi offered the following comments in a press release:

“The groundbreaking of our new assisted living and memory care residence at Gulf Coast Village marks the beginning of an exciting three-phase redevelopment project expanding our community to meet the growing needs of seniors. Palmview will provide improved access to healthcare services as well as all of the amenities and lifestyle choices desired. Our hope is this will be a place where their needs and cares are met, so they can focus on friends, family and the activities they enjoy most.”

Bond Financing Sparks Growth at Gulf Coast Village

Gulf Coast Village has faithfully served Floridians with high-quality continuing care services since 1989. Today, Gulf Coast Village is expanding so that it may update its community and create space to serve more seniors.

Sponsored by Volunteers of America, Gulf Coast Village is located on a 36-acre campus in Cape Coral, Fla. It currently includes 157 independent living apartments, 46 assisted living units, 24 memory support suites and 85 skilled nursing beds.

Proceeds from a $79,385,000 bond financing closed this month will fund a significant expansion and renovation project.

Phase I of the expansion will add 80 assisted living units and 48 memory support suites as part of a new assisted living center to be located on the undeveloped portion of GCV’s campus. Phase I is already underway, with completion scheduled for February 2017.

Phase II will begin shortly after the completion of Phase I, adding 24 catered living units and 20 skilled nursing beds, while also removing the original 46 assisted living units and 24 memory support suites.

The result will be a beautifully expanded and updated campus that includes a total of:

  • 157 independent living apartments
  • 24 catered living units
  • 80 assisted living units
  • 48 memory support suites
  • 105 redeveloped skilled nursing beds

The entire project should reach its conclusion by July 2017.

Greystone is serving as development consultant on this project, in addition to its long history and ongoing role as management consultant at Gulf Coast Village. HJ Sims served as underwriter for the bond financing, AG Architecture is architect on this project, and LECESSE is the construction manager.

Dallas Premieres Glen Campbell Alzheimer’s Film

“Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me,” a powerful documentary that follows the legendary musician and his family on a farewell tour while he deals with Alzheimer’s recently premiered in Dallas. Greystone sponsored the Dallas screening of the film, which was produced in part by Volunteers of America and LeadingAge.

The movie offers an inside portrait of the life and times of Glen, who in 2011 released his final record and embarked on a cross-country tour of America with his wife and children while having recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. During the tour he was honored with a tribute at the Country Music Awards and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Glen’s wife, Kim, attended the premiere and spoke to the audience about their experiences making the film, their kids’ musical aspirations, Glen’s musical influences and how they are continuing to live with the disease. The documentary has shone a bright light on Alzheimer’s awareness and the Campbell family remains committed to furthering the cause.
