The number of Americans age 65 and older is projected to double to more than 98 million by 2060, and the 65-and-older group’s share of the total population will rise to nearly 24 percent from 15 percent.
That aging population is driving the need for more assisted living and memory care facilities. Sundt has built more than half a dozen senior living projects in Arizona, California and New Mexico. We won an award for similar work from the North American Industrial Office Properties Association Arizona Chapter.
This summer, we started construction on the Otay Ranch Senior Living Facility, a $20 million project in Chula Vista, California. The community will have 85 units for assisted living and 26 for memory care. The 105,000-square-foot project is located in the Otay Ranch Community.
“With our portfolio of modern senior living facilities, we are confident seniors in our community will be proud to call Otay Ranch home,” Sundt Vice President and San Diego Regional Director John Messick said.
Amenities include a dining room and bistro, movie theater, fitness room, arts and crafts center, barber/beauty salon, activity space and courtyards.
“We have a solid performing team to manage this project,” said Project Manager Brandon Drury. “It’s exciting to see this kind of synergy. Our combined experiences allow us to anticipate and solve issues with tenacity.”
Construction is expected to be complete next summer.
