Developers to break ground on S. Windsor senior-living facility

Co-developers planning to erect a 113-unit senior living community in South Windsor’s Evergreen Walk said they will break ground on the project Wednesday.

Florida-based Harbor Retirement Associates (HRA) LLC and Denver’s Confluent Senior Living said the so-called HarborChase of Evergreen Walk complex will include 65 assisted-living and 48 memory-care apartments in one- and two-bedroom units when the facility opens in Dec. 2020.

It was unclear when the development, whose pricetag isn’t known, would be completed after the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission last summer unanimously approved the nearly 112,000-square-foot development.
HRA, a management company focused on developing assisted-living communities, will manage Harbor Chase and Confluent Senior Living, a subsidiary of Confluent Development, serves as the project owner.

The South Windsor project will mark the first Connecticut development for both companies, and their seventh working together.

Located at 325 Buckland Road, the facility will be situated on 5.8 acres within a half-mile from high-end, outdoor mall The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk. It’s also about one mile from the Shoppes at Buckland Hills just over the town border in Manchester.

Officials say residents will have access to licensed nurses and 24-hour care staff, concierge, daily transportation services and a barber and beauty salon. The complex will also house about 80 new parking spots, recreation areas, classrooms, a club room, walking trails, a full-service bistro, dining area, putting green and a fitness and wellness center.

Original plans for the development said the facility would create 90 full- and part-time jobs when it’s fully operational.

Wisconsin-based Plunkett Raysich Architects LLP is serving as architect on the development and Baltimore’s Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. as general contractor. Whiting-Turner was the contracting firm that was hired in 2016 to takeover the $71 million development of downtown’s Dunkin’ Donuts Park.

Founded in 2002, HRA said it operates 34 communities in 10 states and is partnering in the construction of another 10 communities in an additional five states. It manages more than $150 million in revenue and approximately $1 billion in assets.
