ALTADENA, Calif. — C.W. Driver Cos. has broken ground on its second and final phase of construction at Episcopal Communities & Services’ MonteCedro senior living community in Altadena, approximately 15 miles north of Los Angeles.
Totaling approximately 101,862 square feet, the project adds four residential buildings, including 40 independent living apartments and a terrace restaurant.
The new $56M villa-style buildings will be two and three stories in height, with two of the structures positioned over a below-grade parking garage podium level. All four buildings will be designated as California licensed Retirement Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) by the Department of Social Services.
In addition to the Phase II work, the project also includes approximately 10,000 square feet of interior construction in the existing Phase I main campus that opened in 2015. The renovations will be made to optimize the primary public and amenity spaces on the ground level.
Construction is scheduled for completion in 2025. The architect is Perkins Eastman.
