Quadrum Global, DeAngelis Diamond Breaks Ground on $95M Community in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Development firm Quadrum Global and general contractor DeAngelis Diamond have broken ground on Avida Senior Living, a 460-unit independent living, assisted living and memory care community in Fort Myers.

The resort-style community is located on a 32-acre site adjacent to the 279-acre Lakes Regional Park, a public park that runs along Gladiolus Drive. Development costs for the 488,265-square-foot campus are estimated at $95 million.

When completed, Avida Senior Living will feature 272 independent living apartments, 28 cottage-style residences, 125 assisted living apartments and 35 memory care apartments.

Quadrum Global, which has offices in New York City and Miami in addition to several international offices, has assembled a team of local companies for the development. These include Naples-based DeAngelis Diamond; Fort Myers-based architecture firm Studio+; Florida-based civil engineering firm Banks Engineering; Bonita Springs-based engineering firm Waldrop Engineering; Fort Myers-based structural engineering firm Select Structural; and Fort Myers-based law firm Henderson Franklin.

Quadrum has also 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 new company.

Avida Senior Living is scheduled to open in fall 2018. StudioSIX5 designed the interiors.
