VISTA, Calif. - City of Vista and County of San Diego officials joined Wakeland on May 28, 2019, to celebrate groundbreaking on The Grove, a new community of affordable homes for low income seniors in downtown Vista, California. When it opens in 2021, the community will have 81 one- and two-bedroom homes for seniors age 62 and older combined with complimentary on-site programs that can enhance residents’ quality of life and help them remain independent as they age.
“We are pleased this project is under construction because The Grove will help Vista in providing more affordable housing options for seniors and in planning for our future residents,” said Vista Mayor Judy Ritter, who joined Wakeland CEO Ken Sauder and other City officials in tossing the first ceremonial shovels of dirt at the groundbreaking ceremony.
The Grove was designed by Dahlin Group Architecture and Planning and is being built by Sun Country Builders. It will be located at 815 Civic Center Drive, within easy walking distance to public transportation, grocery stories, the library and the senior center. In addition to the 81 senior apartments, the property will have abundant green space, outdoor gathering areas, and a community room where residents will be able to participate in activities such as computer workshops, exercise programs, holiday gatherings and social clubs.
Funding for The Grove was provided by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, the City of Vista, Wells Fargo, CCRC, LIIF, CTCAC and FHL Bank San Francisco’s AHP program.
