Balfour Beatty has been selected by ZOM Senior Living as construction manager for the first phase of Wellington Green Senior Living, a mixed-use senior housing community in Wellington, Florida, US.
A venture between ZOM Senior Living and Liberty Senior Living, the project is being developed on a 46-acre lakefront site in Palm Beach County. It will offer a resort-style community with green space in close proximity to popular retail and dining options.
The Class AA senior living community will feature luxury rental housing in several formats, including single-storey villas with attached garages, three-storey garden flats, and residences within a six-storey building, all attached to the main amenity building.
The main attraction will be a two-storey, 65,000ft² clubhouse and amenity building, including multiple dining venues, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa, salon and wellness centre, billiards and cards room, and a theatre.
The project has been designed to include 424 units at full build-out. The first phase of Wellington Green Senior Living project will include 267 independent living, assisted living and memory care residential units.
Construction is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2019.
Balfour Beatty Florida buildings operations president Scott Skidelsky said: “ZOM Senior Living and Liberty Senior Living are redefining the senior housing experience with this luxury rental community at Wellington Green, and Balfour Beatty is thrilled to be their partner in bringing this vision to reality.
“We thrive on building unique, market-leading assets for our clients and Wellington Green will be a ‘crown jewel’ of senior living in Palm Beach County.
“ZOM continues to be a great partner to Balfour Beatty, this being our second project with ZOM in South Florida and our third project nationally. We look forward to pushing the boundaries of senior living in Florida.”
Recently, Balfour Beatty and ZOM completed their first project together, the Solitair at Brickell, a 438-unit, 50-storey tower in Miami.
ZOM Living senior vice president of construction Graham Hatcher said: “Solitair represented one of the most demanding designs and logistically challenging sites that we have ever developed. Balfour Beatty performed extremely well, executing at the highest possible level.
“We also recently broke ground on our second deal together in Dallas, and are excited to venture into the senior housing space with them at Wellington Green.”
