WELLINGTON, Fla. — ZOM Senior Living, in a venture with Liberty Senior Living, has acquired a 46-acre lakefront site in Wellington, a village in Palm Beach County. The companies plan to build a $180 million, multi-phase, mixed-use seniors housing community on the plot.
The site is located adjacent to 400,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, including The Mall at Wellington Green. When completed, the first phase of the community will offer 267 units of independent living, assisted living and memory care. Construction is scheduled to begin in first-quarter 2019.
The centerpiece of the community will be a two-story, 65,000-square-foot clubhouse and amenity building. Units will be offered in a variety of formats, including single-story villas (with attached garages), three-story garden flats, and residences within a six-story building attached directly to the main amenity building. At full build-out, the project is anticipated to include over 424 units.
This will be the first project for ZOM Senior Living, which was recently formed by Orlando-based multifamily developer ZOM Living. It’s the first project in Florida for North Carolina-based operator Liberty Senior Living, a subsidiary of Liberty Healthcare.
LS3P Architects and MSA Architects are providing design and architectural services, while Balfour Beatty was selected as general contractor. Alabama-based CB&S Bank provided bridge financing for the land acquisition.
