At the end of October 2018, Life’s Garden community in Sunnyvale, CA completed its $65-million-dollar redevelopment that started in 2016. The renovation touched every aspect of the community from new fixtures and finishes in all units, improved mobility features throughout the property, installation of drought tolerant landscaping, and an expansion of the management office. The 208-unit building was originally constructed in 1974 to serve seniors 62 and older. To continue that mission, the project took additional steps to provide residents the opportunity to age in place on the premise. The property now has improved ADA parking closer to the building, new cane detection curbs at overhead protruding stairs and widened outdoor walkways to accommodate wheelchairs. Due to the scale of the project and the comprehensive renovation, construction occurred over 8 phases requiring the temporary relocation of more than 200 residents.
Life’s Garden grand re-opening is scheduled for January 10, 2019.
And in November 2018, we completed the $36 million, 12 month refinance and rehabilitation of Mt. Rubidoux Manor in Riverside, CA. The renovation includes significant energy upgrades, full building system replacements, upgraded unit finishes and re-energized community and office spaces. Built in 1971, the 188 unit community provides much needed affordable senior housing to the City of Riverside.

The grand opening for Mt. Rubidoux is anticipated for March of 2019.
