Turnberry and Belmont Village Senior Living are planning an 11-story senior living project with 153 apartments in Aventura. 

Belmont Village Aventura at 3510 Yacht Club Way will mark the third project in South Florida and the first partnership with Turnberry for the Houston-based senior living developer, a press release states. Last month, A Belmont Village affiliate paid $8 million for the 1.4-acre vacant site from a trust linked to Turnberry, the Aventura-based development firm led by CEO Jackie Soffer, records show. The company is co-developing the building with Turnberry, the release states.

The Belmont Village affiliate also obtained a $64.2 million construction loan from Synovus Bank. The Aventura City Council approved the project last year. 

The joint venture expects to complete Belmont Village Aventura, designed by Coral Gables-based Corwil Architects, in 2026, the release states. The planned building will offer a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units, as well as penthouses on the 10th and 11th floors. Tenants will have access to memory care and assisted living services, the release states. 

Amenities will include a restaurant, a bistro and rooftop bar, personal temperature-controlled wine storage with semi-private dining, a fitness center, and an outdoor terrace overlooking the water.
