Hilltop Reserve Set to Elevate Senior Living for Colorado’s Fast-Growing Senior Population

With a focus on its strong Colorado roots and continued commitment to delivering the highest quality range of senior living options in a safe, healthy environment, Ascent Living Communities (ALC) has opened its newest, full-service senior living community, Hilltop Reserve.

Located at the intersection of Leetsdale Drive and Holly St. (525 S. Holly Street), Denver’s newest senior living community delivers 124 Independent Living residences, 56 Assisted Living suites, and 25 Memory Care suites, with 24/7 on-site care staff, in a comprehensive 320,000-square-foot community. Hilltop Reserve has strong preleasing activity with growing interest from the surrounding community.

The concept of continuing care retirement communities, which cater to people aged 50 years and older, continues to gain traction based on its ability to prevent seniors from having to relocate when additional care is needed. As one of the fastest-growing populations of people 60 or over in the nation, according to the Area Agency on Aging for the Denver Regional Council of Governments, Colorado communities need additional communities that provide that full scope of senior housing options and care. In the next 10 years, Colorado will see nearly 40% growth in its over-60 population, and by 2040, one in four Colorado residents will be over 60 years old, according to the agency.

“There is no denying the need and the opportunity to provide this elevated standard of living and care for our seniors and that has been very evident in the excitement and initial response we’ve seen to our new community throughout its construction,” said Christin Tubbs, sales and marketing director for Hilltop Reserve. “And, while the physical structure of this community has been meticulously planned and built, it is the people, our residents, who will truly bring this community to life.”

With urban amenities, refined architecture characteristic of the Hilltop neighborhood, and a focus on luxury, location and lifestyle, Hilltop Reserve offers multiple floor plan options for both. Independent Living residence and Assisted Living and Memory Care suites. Designed to bring the Colorado outdoors into everyday life, the community delivers amenities typically associated with luxury living including a two-tiered courtyard with water feature, fire pits and seating, majestic Colorado views, as well as a range of dining options and top-tier culinary selections. In addition, Hilltop Reserve offers resort-style wellness options, including a gym, aquatics center. and yoga studio with diverse life enrichment programming that cuts across educational, cultural, social and recreational activities and events.

“We are a Colorado-to-the-core company and we’ve taken great pride in designing the Hilltop Reserve community in a way that will allow our residents to continue to explore, engage and appreciate the Colorado lifestyle that we all love – no matter your age, health or activity level,” said ALC Founder and Principal Susie Finley. “Built on the foundation of our exemplary healthcare, we carry that same level of quality and service to the residences and suites, as well as the food, arts, entertainment and amazing outdoors, to deliver the life experiences that help our residents thrive.”

Hilltop Reserve represents the third Denver-area senior-living community developed and operated by Colorado owners Tom and Susie Finley (Carillon at Belleview Station and Village at Belmar) who have assembled a comprehensive team of experienced and highly respected healthcare and life enrichment professionals, as well as a culinary staff and business team to. operate their newest community. Led by a 15-year industry veteran, Executive Director Rhenne Cervantes brings a full spectrum of experience in senior care and is known for cultivating servant leadership among his peers and direct reports, as well as inspiring trust and collaboration among residents and families, team members and community partners.

“We know what older adults are looking for when it comes to the transition to a senior living community and what they and their loved ones expect when it comes to the continuum of care when needed,” said Rhenne Cervantes. “From our local owners to our talented team of professionals that will engage with, care and cook for, and share life experiences with our residents, we’re excited to open these doors and showcase the magic of this incredible community.”

In addition to delivering the Colorado luxury and lifestyle, the ownership, construction and design teams, including Catamount Constructors, HCM Architects, StudioSix5 Design, and DAE Group made a substantial commitment to integrating state-of-the-art safety features into the construction of Hilltop Reserve.

The community will offer the latest fully-integrated, eco-friendly, health and safety features including:

  • State-of-the-art bi-polar ionization air purification systems proven to be 99.4% effective at
    eliminating indoor airborne pathogens such as COVID-19* integrated into the HVAC
  • Automatically operated common area doors throughout the community;
  • Solid surface antimicrobial counters in all common areas and residences
  • Touchless fixtures in all public restrooms and locker room facilities;

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Susie, Tom, and the entire Ascent Living Communities and Focus Property Group teams for Hilltop Reserve Senior Living. It has been a great collaboration and hard work by all parties to get to this point, and we are excited to turn over this project for Hilltop to welcome its first residents,” said Jeffrey Pfeifer, project executive – Senior Living for Catamount Constructors.
