A new senior living community will be developed by PinPoint Commercial LP in the Aldea master-planned community. The Legacy at Santa Fe will be located at the intersection of Avenida Aldea and Camino Botanica.

The development will consist of 84 units, featuring a combination of limited assistance, traditional assistance and memory-care living. Construction is scheduled to begin in June; once the leasing process is finalized, the community will employ 40 to 50 people.

The community will feature state-of-the-art senior living technology, such as digital resident care platforms that integrate health and medical records with touchscreen devices, monitoring systems, wireless caregiver alert systems, wireless RFID door-entry systems, exercise equipment specifically designed for seniors and personal activity trackers.

The design plans at the Legacy at Santa Fe include separate facility neighborhoods for easy delivery of assistance. Each neighborhood contains unique common areas and is designed around a “Main Street,” with a restaurant, movie theater, general store, gym, library and sports lounge.

“The Legacy at Santa Fe is the result of a two-year process,” said Charles Turner, principal at PinPoint Commercial. “We studied more than 300 submarkets, and after months of travel and extensive research, we believe that the northern Santa Fe area is one of the most underserved markets that we have found to date. We can’t wait to get started.”
