A $13 million assisted living and memory care center is under construction at 5355 Centennial Blvd. in northern Colorado Springs.
The development of the 3.2 acre project is a joint venture between Denver-based MorningStar Senior Living and Millennium Venture Group, which is also based in Denver and will operate the facility.
“El Paso County expects 16 percent growth in residents age 75 + from 2010 to 2015 and 23 percent growth in the same population between 2015 and 2020,” said Millennium Venture Group President Mike Dailey. “And those seniors increasingly want hassle-free retirement living with resort-style amenities.”
MorningStar will offer studio, one- and two-bedroom suites ranging in size from 311 to 683 square feet.
Residents will also have access to three meals a day in restaurant-style dining rooms and bistros, health and wellness facilities, planned activities and daily outings, a movie theater, 24-hour staffing, full-time licensed nurse, weekly housekeeping and liens service and a beauty salon.
