In order to build its luxury senior living development that will open in downtown Boca Raton, developers Group P6 proffered a settlement to litigation it filed against the city and city’s CRA.
The Concierge, which plans to add independent and assisted living and memory care residences, will be located on Southeast Sixth Street between Dixie Highway and Federal Highway.
The $75 million project was originally pitched to the city’s CRA board over the summer. The project was denied over concerns of parking and how many emergency phone calls the facility would generate.
So, the developers filed litigation. Ultimately, the project was approved with changes offered by the developer.
Group P6 decreased the number of units and beds in the project. Now, the project will bring 88 units with 26 assisted living residences, 42 independent living residences and 24 memory care beds.
The agency board members thanked P6 for working to address their concerns.
“Thank you for being willing to hear us and make a considerable change,” board chair Andrea O’Rourke said. “I think collaboration is what works best and I appreciate it.”
Construction is scheduled to begin by the fourth quarter of next year.
“The Concierge was designed with the utmost attention to luxury and service at every level,” said Ignacio Diaz, operating manager of Group P6. “Residents will have access to all that downtown Boca Raton has to offer, including high-end shopping, dining and a rich arts and cultural scene. There is nothing like it in East Boca’s premium- and high-end market, though the need continues to grow.”
Residents will have access to a variety of both indoor and outdoor resort-style amenities. Outdoor offerings will feature a rooftop pool, summer kitchen and lounge, open-air terraces, yoga and music areas. The development’s indoors amenities include a wine bar and bistro, full-service restaurant, café, private dining room, club room, theatre, activity rooms, library, salon, spa and gym.
Charter Senior Living will provide management services for the development and will function as part owner.
“The Concierge is uniquely positioned to provide a level of resident service that optimizes health and wellness and offers personalized programming, vibrant amenities and socialization options consistent with the Boca Raton lifestyle,” said Charter Senior Living’s President and CEO Keven Bennema.
