The Avila Retirement Home is adding 44 units to its 152 existing units, and has set a target date for completion of the project for the beginning of 2010.
Karen Hoogkamp, community liaison for the retirement center, said the extension will be three stories and the units will range from 785 square feet to 1211 square feet.
Once we have 28 people committed to the new units then the shovel will go into the ground, Hoogkamp said.
She said so far about 10 have committed, and there are many more on the waiting list who could follow suit.
The additional units will be in a building located directly across from the cottages, and will feature all of the existing amenities of the existing units, with the addition of several new benefits including a new meal plan and the option to choose the floor tiles, rugs and dEcor, she added.
