CA Senior Living LLC, the senior housing investment and development division of Chicago-based CA Ventures, today announced it has begun construction on Atria Westminster, a five-story, 137-unit senior living community located at 9560 Sheridan Blvd. in Westminster, Colo., approximately 10 miles northwest of Denver. The property is expected to open in early 2020.
“Building on the tremendous success of our senior living community in Englewood, which is slated to open in 2019 and marks our entry into the Colorado market, we are excited to bring another top-notch senior living offering to this rapidly growing region,” said Ben Burke, president of CA Senior Living. “With a convenient location just off the Denver-Boulder Turnpike, we expect Atria Westminster to appeal to a wide population of older adults seeking a modern, lifestyle-oriented housing option that provides a full continuum of care.”
When complete, Atria Westminster will offer 107 assisted living apartments, 30 memory care studios, and an attached single-story dining and amenity wing. Assisted living units will range in size from 410-square-foot studios to 970-square-foot two-bedrooms, while memory care studios will range from 275 to 310 square feet. Like all CA Senior Living communities, residents will enjoy high-end finishes throughout, such as stainless steel appliances and fixtures, quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, decorative sconces and recessed lighting, in addition to thoughtfully designed common areas to maximize resident engagement.
Future residents of Atria Westminster will enjoy 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, including a formal dining room, bistro-style pub, fitness center, theater and various activity rooms. Outdoor amenities will include landscaped courtyards, a walking garden and a community sculpture, while a rooftop lounge will offer views of the Rocky Mountains and adjacent golf course.
“From delightful dining experiences to helpful housekeeping assistance to a cadre of social activities including book clubs, gardening, exercise and volunteering, Atria Westminster will provide daily opportunities to ensure residents are engaged, active and healthy,” said Burke. “The lifestyle offerings and convenient location between Denver and Boulder make Atria Westminster an ideal choice for seniors who want an amenity-rich experience in this lively community.”
Louisville, Ky.-based Atria Senior Living has been retained as the operator for the community. With more than 225 locations across the U.S. and Canada, Atria promotes overall well-being for its residents through a whole-person approach to aging that emphasizes exercise, connection, nutrition and goals. Specially trained caregivers will aid with medication management and activities of daily living such as bathing and grooming, if needed. Through Atria’s signature Engage Life program, residents will also be presented with opportunities for continued learning, personal growth and fulfillment.
Residents and families requiring memory care will receive specialized services in the community’s secure and thoughtfully designed Life Guidance® neighborhood. Atria’s Life Guidance program takes an individualized approach to memory care, drawing on each resident’s history while building strong staff-resident relationships.
“Across the U.S. and Canada, we serve a population of seniors who are discerning in their preferences and want to remain physically and socially active – like so many older adults in Colorado,” said Abby Figueroa, senior vice president at Atria Senior Living. “We’re proud to deepen our commitment to the Denver area and expand our relationship with CA Senior Living with Atria Westminster.”
Designed by OZ Architects and built by Brinkmann Constructors, Atria Westminster is conveniently located less than a half-mile from a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment offerings, including the Hyland Hills Park & Recreation District and an 18-hole championship golf course.
CA Senior Living currently has 22 communities operating or under construction throughout the U.S. Atria Westminster will be the fourth CA Senior Living property operated by Atria Senior Living.
