Developer Quadrum Global and general contractor DeAngelis Diamond held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of construction of a resort-style senior housing development in Fort Myers.

Avida Senior Living is a 32-acre community development for assisted living, independent living and memory care scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.

The 488,265-square-foot campus will have 272 apartments for independent living, 125 for assisted living apartments and 35 for memory care, plus 28 cottage-style residences.

The amenities at Avida Senior Living will include four outdoor courtyards, swimming pools and spa facilities, a private theater, dining hall, bar bistro, and 24-hour nursing station.

The development site at 7650 Gladiolus Drive is next to Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers, a 279-acre public park, and near two hospitals.

Quadrum, with offices in Manhattan and Miami Beach, selected Studio+ of Fort Myers as the architecture firm for Avida Senior Living and studioSIX5 as the interior designer.

“As demand continues to grow faster than supply over the next decade, we expect senior living communities to be among Quadrum’s core focuses in the United States,”  Seth Schumer, Quadrum’s director of U.S. investments, said in a prepared statement.

He further stated that Quadrum’s goal with its Fort Myers development is to create a senior living community that “stands apart from the impersonal offerings that are so common in the industry.”
