ALTADENA, Calif. — Episcopal Communities & Services (ECS) has opened the doors on MonteCedro, a 206-unit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in the Los Angeles suburb of Altadena. Development costs were not disclosed.
Perkins Eastman provided design and planning services for the eight-acre community, comprising 186 independent living apartments, 20 assisted living and memory support residences, and coordinated in-home care. The community is the first of its kind to be built in Los Angeles County in over 20 years, according to Perkins Eastman.
ECS, a nonprofit operator based in nearby Pasadena, operates two other CCRCs in Southern California — The Canterbury in Rancho Palos Verdes and The Covington in Aliso Viejo.
