Construction is underway on a $62-million senior housing complex in Costa Mesa called Vivante on the Coast.
The 185-unit retirement community being developed by Nexus Cos. at 1640 Monrovia Ave. is intended to provide a resort-style environment for tenants 62 and older.
"We’ve incorporated many of the new ideas in fitness, healthcare, technology and lifestyle that appeal to the demands of our growing aging population, especially here in Orange County," said Curt Olson, chief executive of Nexus Cos.
The gated campus will have a fitness and physical therapy facility with an indoor saltwater pool, outdoor courtyards and rooftop decks. Culinary options will include fine dining, a cafe and a lounge. There will be a 24-hour concierge and complimentary local transportation.
Other luxury touches include a spa, a yoga deck, a serenity garden and reflexology foot path, putting green and bocce ball court.
There will also be a secure 40-unit facility on the property to provide specialized care for residents with Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s and other related diseases.
Vivante will be the first new retirement community built in the Newport Beach and Costa Mesa area in 15 years, Olson said. It is to be completed in fall 2013. Monthly rents, which include meals and other services, will run from $3,990 to $7,590.
