Pinkard Construction Completes Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility in Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs, CO — Construction Manager/General Contractor Pinkard Construction Company has completed construction of The Retreat at Sunny Vista, the new memory care and assisted living on the Sunny Vista Colorado Springs campus.
The grand opening for the $18 million, 55,000-square-foot AL and MC campus was held in November. Construction cost was $13.8 million.
Designed by Lantz-Boggio Architects, The Retreat offers 38 assisted and 28 memory care apartments, and features a therapy gym, full kitchen and dining room, community life gathering areas, three fireplaces, and a secure courtyard with outdoor patios and fire pit, a sensory garden, exercise stairs, and walking paths.
Other innovative systems include Telehealth, which provides 24/7 access to doctors, Soundwall music therapy, and a hearing loop for residents who need audio aid.
Expanding upon the 100-year, locally-focused legacy of its parent Sunny Vista Living Community, the Retreat aims to provide “a campus that meets all the different needs of the local senior population.”
The Retreat is across the street from The Living Center at Sunny Vista, a skilled nursing community, constructed by Pinkard in 2012. The Retreat at Sunny Vista sits on the site of Sunny Vista’s original building, which operated from 1911 until 2012. Cappella Living Solutions will provide management and operation services.
