PHOENIX — Owner-Operator Life Care Services (an LCS Company) and general contractor The Weitz Company have started construction of a four-story independent living expansion at Sagewood, a continuing care retirement community in Phoenix. 

This is the largest expansion at the property since it opened in 2010.The 280,000-square-foot project includes 101 new units, 23,000 square feet of common space and a 156-stall underground parking garage.

The independent living units will feature both one- and two-bedroom floor plans with a living room and full-size kitchen. New amenities will include an 18-hole putting course, chapel, top-floor lounge and guest suites. This phase of construction will also deliver new administration offices for the Sagewood operations staff; renovations to the existing Canyon Café and Palo Verde kitchen and dining hall; and a new dining venue.

Designed by architect Todd & Associates, this phase of construction is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.

This will be the 14th project Weitz has built at Sagewood since originally constructing the 85-acre community, and the fourth since the start of 2017.
