FORT MYERS — Amavida, a new resort-style senior living community in Fort Myers, recently launched leasing and opened its welcome center.
The 32-acre, $95-million development, at 7650 Gladiolus Drive, has options for seniors in every phase of life, including independent living, assisted living and memory care, according to a statement. International real estate development, investment and management firm Quadrum Global is the developer of the project.
“Today marks a significant moment in Quadrum's plan to bring a world-class senior living community to Southwest Florida, which is one of the nation's fastest-growing retirement destinations,” says Oleg Pavlov, Quadrum's founder and chief executive officer, in a March 9 announcement.
The almost 500,000-square-foot campus has direct access to Lakes Park and will feature 460 rental homes, including cottages, residences, apartments and suites. The campus will offer a variety of services and amenities, including concierge and valet services; on-site wellness center; a fitness center; a variety of restaurants, library, and private theater; and tennis and pickleball courts, among other highlights.
Quadrum formed a separate entity, Quadrum Senior Living Management, to manage the community's construction and operations. Colin Marshall, a senior living veteran with more than 20 years of management experience, leads the entity. Construction of Amavida Senior Living is scheduled for completion in Fall 2018. “By incorporating elements that have been successful in our other resident projects, we've set the community apart from the competition,” Marshall says in the release.
