Grand Opening: MorningStar of Arvada
Co-developers MorningStar Senior Living and Confluent Senior Living recently announced the grand opening of MorningStar of Arvada, a new 160,000-square-foot senior living community in Arvada. The project helps answer the state’s high demand for senior housing with the addition of 141 suites for community seniors as well as adding more than 100 jobs to the metro Denver market.
Located at 17351 W. 64th Ave in Arvada, the independent living, assisted living and memory care community is situated on 1.5 acres, encircled by six parks and Arvada Reservoir. The development marks the fifth senior living community in the state between Confluent Senior Living and MorningStar Senior Living. The co-developers have also delivered communities in Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Wheat Ridge.
MorningStar of Arvada includes 71 suites dedicated to independent living, 41 assisted living suites and 29 suites devoted to the specialized care of residents with memory impairment, in a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans.
“MorningStar of Arvada is a very welcome addition to our community that helps meet the strong demand for quality senior living,” said Arvada Mayor Marc Williams. “Arvada is pleased to feature this state-of-the-art community for residents, enhancing the range of housing options for seniors. On behalf of the city, it has been a pleasure to support this project and work with MorningStar Senior Living and Confluent Senior Living for the benefit of Arvada.”
The pet-friendly community features a bistro with chef-inspired menus, pool and spa, fitness center, theater, salon, club room, art studio, massage and therapy rooms, outdoor patio, putting green and courtyards. Residents have 24-hour access to staff and full-time licensed nurses for personalized care, with housekeeping and linen service, concierge and scheduled transportation. The community also offers activities as part of MorningStar Senior Living’s Life Enrichment program, designed to provide social, physical, spiritual and intellectual activities that have a positive impact on residents.
“We’re proud to introduce the MorningStar brand to the city of Arvada,” said Matt Turner, managing partner for MorningStar Senior Living. “With our commitment to delivering exceptional senior living facilities, this new community is another successful testament to our commitment to Colorado as well as the strength of our brand.”
MorningStar of Arvada is the 10th completed joint venture in the United States between affiliates of MorningStar, a Denver-based senior living developer, owner and operator, and Confluent Senior Living, a subsidiary of Denver-based real estate investment and development firm Confluent Development. Confluent is the project owner and MorningStar serves as the operator.
“This exceptional community is the product of our longstanding partnership that is built from two established and experienced teams,” said Marshall Burton, president and CEO of Confluent Development. “With both MorningStar Senior Living and Confluent Senior Living based in Colorado, this is a meaningful market for our partnership and we’re pleased to support the demand for high-quality senior living in the area.”
