Why are so many units being proposed?
The senior housing model we operate is based on decades of experience providing a quality of life experience to those looking for an safe, close knit, wellness based community in their later years. The amenities offered at our communities require that there be enough residents to support the expense of those operations. In an effort to mitigate the density of this proposed project we have positioned the buildings toward the center of the site and not along the property lines. We have also minimized the height of the buildings closest to the existing single family homes to 1 or 2 stories. The project increases in height has it gets closer to Winding Way and allows for the majority of the more independent residents to live nearest the main activity core of the community.
