Senior living builder RJ Development could begin construction as early as next month on a planned 155-unit independent senior living project in Surprise near Reems Road and Mountain View Boulevard.
The proposal consists of a three-story building of 135 units, and 10 single-story duplex cottages on 8.5 acres within the city’s Parkview Place Senior Village.
The desert-style development will feature a walking path around the perimeter. Amenities include a pool, two courtyards, a beauty salon, billiards and card rooms, a theater, bistro, woodworking shop, quilting room, bocce ball court and exercise areas. A bus driver will also be available to transport residents to area events.
No healthcare services will be provided on site, however residents will be able to make use of local home health providers as needed.
RJ Development has 14 senior living facilities around the country, including memory care, assisted living and independent living operations. Four more are currently under construction, and another 11 more are in development. All told, the company’s facilities total 1,452 units.
