A brand new Discover Village senior living community is now under construction, thanks to the combined efforts of The Henning Group and Discovery Senior Living.
The 120-unit, $35 million independent living development will open in the first quarter of 2016 in Palm Beach Gardens, on 10 acres at 100 Discovery Way, between Northlake Blvd and Beeline Highway, just west of Jog Road. Construction began Dec. 16.
The Henning Group is nearing completion of Discovery Village Naples, a 30-unit senior living center in East Naples.
Discovery Village At Palm Beach Gardens will offer individual, all-inclusive care plans and resort-style amenities in a stimulating environment where residents will have their needs taken care of around the clock.
“Our residents can expect the very best in professional health and wellness services and care with resort-style amenities in an all-inclusive setting,” said Thomas J. Harrison, CEO and co-founder of Discovery Senior Living.
Features and amenities will include three gourmet meals with tableside service daily, complimentary scheduled transportation, a team of experienced and licensed professionals available 24/7, health and wellness visits, on-site medical director, onsite therapies, an on-site Medicare-certified home healthcare agency, concierge services, housekeeping, and a full calendar of social and recreational activities.
The Grande Clubhouse will have two dining rooms; social areas; a game room, bistro and ice cream parlor, bar and lounge and movie theater; a state-of-the-art wellness center; a senior-equipped fitness center; an indoor heated wellness pool; a professional beauty salon and spa with barber shop; a media center with cognitive brain fitness; and a multifunctional art, hobby and craft center and activity room.
Construction of Discovery Village At Palm Beach Gardens will create jobs for approximately 100 workers constructing the 130,000-square-foot building. Once open, Discovery Village At Palm Beach Gardens will create approximately 80 new jobs for the community.
