Hunt Midwest is extending its senior housing reach outside the Kansas City region, announcing plans to build an 84-unit assisted living and memory care community in Royal Palm Beach, Florida.
The 76,200-square foot Capstone at Royal Palm will offer residents resort-style living in a secure environment, with Mediterranean architecture and amenities such as fitness center, bistro lounge, sunroom, walking trails, gazebo and dog park.
"To continue our growth in the senior housing space, Hunt Midwest began looking at dynamic markets in the southeast to develop first-class assisted living and memory care communities," said Ora Reynolds, president and CEO of Hunt Midwest. "About that time, the Village of Royal Palm Beach recognized a desire to provide its senior population with assisted living and memory care services in quality projects or risk losing their residents to neighboring communities. The timing was ideal for us to meet that need, which led to our purchase of this highly desirable infill site..."
In addition to the Royal Palm project, Hunt Midwest has signed contracts to purchase land in the fast-growing Nashville, Tenn. suburbs of Mt. Juliet and Gallatin, with plans to develop two additional Capstone communities in that market.
Hunt Midwest has aligned with nationally recognized operating partner Integral Senior Living for the Capstone at Royal Palm. Construction will begin this fall with an opening expected in late 2019.
