Sonata Senior Living Plans $52M Community Near Orlando

LAKE MARY, Fla. — Sonata Senior Living has announced plans to develop Sonata Lake Mary, a 193-unit seniors housing community in Lake Mary, approximately 15 miles north of Orlando.

The four-story, 250,000-square-foot community will be located on a seven-acre site within the Lake Wellness and Technology Park mixed-use development. The property will feature 88 independent living, 92 assisted living and 13 memory care apartments.

Sonata Lake Mary is scheduled for groundbreaking in early 2020 for a planned 2021 opening. It will be the 12th community for Orlando-based Sonata Senior Living, a privately held senior housing developer and operator. Development costs were estimated at $52 million.

The location of Sonata Lake Mary within the 153-acre, $750 million Lake Wellness and Technology Park will place the community in close proximity to a hospital, urgent care facility and medical pavilion. Orlando Health plans to start construction of the $470 million, 240-bed hospital in 2020, with plans for another 84,000-square-feet of medical office space within walking distance to Sonata Lake Mary.
