FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 28, 2022) Cypress Cove life plan community broke ground today on a 12 acre, gated, luxury home expansion called The Oaks at Cypress Cove. All of the 24 elevated residences and 24 villas pre-sold months before construction began. With a nod to trends in luxury senior living, all the independent living homes will feature smart home technology for safety and convenience, as well as proactive healthcare initiatives. The new clubhouse will offer numerous high-end amenities.
“We’ve responded to the rapid growth here in Southwest Florida by developing luxurious, state-of-the-art residences combined with enhanced amenities that will truly have our residents saying they love where they live,” said Troy Churchill, LNHA, MHA, president and CEO of Cypress Living, the management company for Cypress Cove. “This year Cypress Cove turned 23 and today we start a new chapter with this groundbreaking as we continue to create better tomorrows here in our SWFL community.”
Located at the corner of Summerlin Road and Bass Road, the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The construction costs are estimated at $46 million. Cypress Cove is proud to partner with RLPS Architects, Johnson Engineering, and Stantec for the design and Chris-Tel Construction as the construction manager of The Oaks at Cypress Cove.
“Cypress Cove is raising the bar for luxury life plan communities in terms of the size of the units, the look of the campus, the technology being integrated, and the abundance of amenities being offered,” said Howard Wheeler II, president of Chris-Tel Construction. “Chris-Tel Construction is excited to be a part of this cutting-edge project.”
