Pinkard Breaks Ground at Sunny Vista Assisted Living & Memory Care
Colorado Springs, Colorado — Construction Manager/General Contractor Pinkard Construction Company celebrated the start of the Sunny Vista’s new assisted living and memory care project, The Retreat at Sunny Vista, in a celebration on April 29, 2016.
Representatives from Sunny Vista, Cappella Living Solutions, Lantz-Boggio Architects, the City of Colorado Springs and Pinkard Construction spoke in a brief ceremony. Visitors were then encouraged to shovel some snowy ground and officially declare the project underway. Sunny Vista’s 13th Annual Art Show and Silent Auction followed.
The Retreat at Sunny Vista is a $10.5 million building, designed by Lantz-Boggio Architects. It will be two stories containing 66 units over 55,000 square feet, featuring a therapy gym, full kitchen and dining room and secure courtyard. Cappella Living Solutions will provide management and operation services.
The site is across the street from Sunny Vista Living Center’s current skilled nursing community, constructed by Pinkard in 2012. The Retreat at Sunny Vista will be built on the site of their original building which operated from 1911 until 2012. Construction is set to start in summer 2016 following demolition.
