In one more innovation responding to a growing senior market, a new planned project in south Chandler, Arizona will see both the construction of new residential space, as well as a large shopping center.
What is being called Cadence at Chandler will go up on a currently vacant 7.4-acre site at the northwest corner of S. Arizona Avenue and Queen Creek Road.
To be developed by the San Diego-based Global Senior Housing, along with Cadence Senior Living of Scottsdale, the project will feature 191 residential units. Of that number, 26 will be set aside for memory care.
The remaining 165 units will be for assisted and independent living units.
The shopping center will go up adjacent to the residential properties, and is expected to include a CVS outlet.
According to city documents, Cadence at Chandler will also include five secured outdoor courtyards offering a swimming pool, bocce ball court and seating areas.
The project, which has won the approval of the Chandler Planning Commission, will be designed in the southwest mission style using light-colored stucco and adobe tile roofing.
