    Large-scale senior developments

    Does anyone have examples of large scale senior housing developments that includes some of the following:

    Assisted Living/Nursing home
    Independant Apartments
    5+ story units
    75-acre site
    Part of existing campus, (school, hospital...)
    Gated community
    Community club houses
    Suburban setting
    Planned Village (has commercial component)
    1000+ units

    You might want to do an internet search for the Village at Penn State in State College, PA. It is a very large mixed-use senior community with multiple housing and care types. I reviewed some of its earlier plans. Despite the name, it is loosely connected with PSU.

    The Villages located just outside of The City of Ocala in Marion County in central Florida is a fairly recent ongoing successful example of large-scale senior development meeting most of your listed requirements.

    I am sure the Marion County planning department as well as the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council could tell you all about it.

    Also Oxford Mississippi has a large retirement development that they push pretty hard to become a retirement community. I understand it is also successful and I believe it meets much of your criteria. It’s called Magnolia something…give Oxford a call.

    Hope the leads are helpful.

    Del Webb (now Pulte) has done a number of large scale senior developments in the southwest. Their Sun City Grand development seems to meet your requirements.

    If you are going there, don't forget Sun City and Sun City West!! They are still basically just suburb built subdivisions with amenities for seniors and CCR's for age restrictions.

    As for a managed care type facility there is a fair sized one in Tempe that meets many of the criteria. You can find their website here. They also have a virtual tour of their planned expansion.

    Your Criteria:
    Assisted Living/Nursing home- Yes
    Independant Apartments - Yes
    5+ story units - No Current expansion project is 3 stories.
    75-acre site - 43 acres approx.
    Part of existing campus, (school, hospital...) Located within walking distance of regional hospital, community college, and 1 mile from regional mall.
    Gated community - Yes
    Community club houses - Yes
    Suburban setting - Yes
    Planned Village (has commercial component) - No, commercial within short travel and walking distance.
    1000+ units - Not sure how many units they have.

    Sun City in Georgetown, Texas. I don't know about the specifics of it, but I think it has a website and the City of Georgetown should have a lot of info about it.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
