Senior Living Project Underway In Englewood
Chicago-based CA Senior Living LLC has started construction on Atria Englewood, a seven-story, 130-unit senior living community at 3555 South Clarkson St. in south suburban Denver.
Atria will offer a mix of assisted living and memory care apartments when it opens in the summer of 2019.
“The acquisition of this site in a dense, affluent community near Denver reflects our commitment to delivering high-quality senior housing with the added benefit of proximity to urban conveniences,” CA Senior Living President Ben Burke said. “It’s exciting to bring our expertise in senior housing development to a part of Colorado with such high demand.”
The surrounding south Denver neighborhoods of Washington Park, Platte Park and Harvard Gulch flourished in the years following World War II, and many residents remained in the area over the years, Burke said.
“As home values continue to rise in these sought-after neighborhoods, seniors are selling their homes and gravitating to more supportive, connected environments like Atria Englewood,” Burke said.
Atria Englewood will have 106 assisted-living apartments, with floor plans ranging from 380 to 1,200 SF. There will be a mix of studio, one-bedroom and one-bedroom-plus-den configurations, each with one bath, washers and dryers and full kitchens. The remaining 24 apartments will be secure memory care units where residents will receive an individualized approach to service and care.
The upper-floor amenities will include a rooftop terrace with fire pits and a sky lounge with views of the Rocky Mountains. Other amenities will include separate dining and activity spaces for assisted living and memory care residents. Assisted living residents will have access to a bistro/lounge and cafe for casual dining, as well as a theater, activity kitchen and clubroom where they can socialize with neighbors and host family and friends.
