Civitas Senior Living and Desert Land Group form JV for Arizona senior living project
Civitas Senior Living, a senior living management company, and Desert Land Group, an Arizona-based real estate developer, have plans to bring a new senior living community to Flagstaff, Ariz.
“We are looking forward to being a part of the steady economic growth Flagstaff has experienced over the last several years. Not only will our community offer seniors a great living experience, but it will also bring a variety of new economic and employment opportunities to the area,” said Wayne Powell, founder and CEO of Civitas Senior Living.
The upscale community will be called The Bluffs of Flagstaff and feature a continuum of care with independent living, assisted living and memory care on one campus.
“Flagstaff is primarily known as a tourist destination, but the same elements that make it so popular with tourists also make it a prime location for retirement,” said Luke Still, MAI, Desert Land Group CFO. “We not only want to serve the local senior population but to also become a premier destination senior living community.”
The new, approximately 210,572-square-foot community will be located at 3100 East Butler Ave. in East Flagstaff between Continental Golf Club and Pine Canyon. The Bluffs of Flagstaff will feature 120 independent living, 66 assisted living and 18-memory care apartments for a total of 204 residences and will feature resort-style amenities including:
- Indoor pool
- Putting green
- Beautiful interior courtyard
- Pub and lounge
- Fitness gym
- Restaurant-style dining
- Outdoor cooking area
- Dog parks
- Bustling activities calendar
The official groundbreaking for The Bluffs of Flagstaff is Oct. 10. The community’s target opening date is set for February 2021.
