Work Begins at Fountainview at Gonda Senior Living Community in Playa Vista
The latest Playa Vista retirement community is officially under construction as developer C.W. Driver has begun operations at the site of its Fountainview at Gonda Westside campus. The developer’s latest project will take shape on a 2.5 acre lot. The developer is looking to complete the 460,000-square-foot project by 2016. The project will be closely affiliated with the Los Angeles Jewish Home Organization.
The Gensler-designed senior community will offer 175 upscale apartment units meant for independent living, while 24 units will be designated for assisted living and memory care use. The developer is set to invest roughly $100 million in the development of Fountainview at Gonda Westside. Units at the senior living complex will have 18 different floor plan options that will range in size between 840 and 2,380 square feet. The independent living apartments will come in one- and two-bedroom layouts, while all residences will feature a washer/dryer, full kitchen, and terrace. Some units will also offer a den or media room.
According to official specs for the project, once completed, the community will offer a full range of amenities to its elderly residents. Residents at the Fountainview will enjoy a fully equipped fitness center with a certified trainer, rooftop featuring a swimming pool, spa, garden with walking paths, café with outdoor seating, sun lounge and views of the nearby Santa Monica Mountains. The location will also include a private dining room, a state of the art theater for film, theatrical and musical performances, a library, a business center, an art and activity studio, as well as a landscaped courtyard at the ground level with café, bar and outdoor dining area. Residents will also have valet parking and transportation service, concierge service, 24-hour security, and cultural and educational programs and events.
