Senior Living Satellite Community Allows for Growth
With a robust wait list and a built-out property, Vicar’s Landing introduced a new, upscale senior living satellite community campus. The Oak Bridge community, a short drive from the Atlantic coast and close to the renowned TPC Sawgrass, is designed as a resort-style neighborhood.
Both the residences and the clubhouse for this new senior living satellite community feature open plans, with abundant natural light and high ceilings wherever possible. The coastal contemporary architecture reflects the local vernacular and subtropical climate with light, reflective materials and careful shading strategies. The interior design features a more saturated coastal palette with nautical blues and greens evocative of the surrounding landscape.
Master Planning Created the Framework for Multi-Phased Construction
Phase 1 construction for the 424,000 square foot senior living satellite expansion included two hybrid home “Flats” buildings with 66 apartments, 47 duplex and triplex villas and a 20,000 SF clubhouse. Marketing for the first phase was so successful that construction continued uninterrupted into another hybrid flats building for Phase 2.
Plans for the next phase include 14-bed assisted living and 18-bed memory care households and another hybrid flats building. This phase also anticipates a 14,000 square foot mixed use shell space for a health clinic, small restaurant or other use.
Resort-Style Clubhouse Serves Satellite Community and Original Campus
With golf cart access to the original Sawgrass campus, the Oak Bridge satellite neighborhood features complementary amenities to encourage interaction between the two. Fine dining, a casual café and pub, exercise equipment room, fitness classroom, beauty salon and massage room comprise the 20,000 SF clubhouse. The flexible dining venue design incorporates technology to host meetings or large scale special events.
Vicar’s Landing considered an indoor aquatics center, but decided an outdoor pool was better suited to a resort lifestyle. The pool supports holistic wellness as part of fitness programming and a social gathering venue. The surrounding deck and bar area provide an appealing and lively outdoor event space.
