Wichita, Kansas-based Legend Senior Living® broke ground this week on its eleventh community in Florida, its third in Jacksonville. Windsor Pointe of Jacksonville, a three-story independent living residence, is planned for opening in Summer of 2021.
Located in a prime eastern Jacksonville setting, Windsor Pointe will be located at 4060 San Pablo Parkway, just next door to Legend's Windsor of San Pablo Assisted Living and Memory Care residence, minutes from the central metro area, Mayo Clinic, I-295, the intercoastal waterway and just 10 minutes east of St. John's Town Center. Windsor Pointe is designed to replicate a vacation resort atmosphere, with architecture and lifestyle features that are a departure from communities before it.
“Legend Senior Living is a family-owned, family-operated company, which already sets it apart from many other senior living communities,” said Debi Thomas, Legend’s Vice President of Business Development. “We wanted Windsor Pointe to be truly contemporary and exciting, something fresh and different in independent living, while staying focused on the independence and dignity of the residences, consistent with our mission.”
The new community concept emphasizes more places for gathering, a greater number of social activities and amenities on-site that create a resident-focused, self-contained village environment.
“We call it ‘Our Town,’ a City in Itself,” explained Paul Hansen, Legend’s Director of Marketing, “everything you need in the idyllic comfort of an intimate resort town.” Windsor Pointe will feature a spa-style hair salon, medical offices, an exercise area for pets called the Bark Park, and for pure relaxation, a full library and drinks in the grand lounge, around the firepit or at the friendly, neighborhood pub. For fitness, there are fully equipped exercise rooms, a walking trail circling the lake and plenty of organized sports activities.
Legend puts such great emphasis on understanding the lifestyles and desires of seniors, that their associates actually follow trademarked guidelines to qualify as Legend Experts in Senior Living™. Legend has been certified a Great Place to Work®, based on extensive ratings surveys completed regularly by Legend associates. “We’re really proud of these accomplishments,” Hansen said. “Creating a culture where every associate is an expert in the industry and can thrive contributes directly to the quality of life of residents.”
Reservations are already being accepted and offer exclusive Charter Member benefits for those reserving apartments now.
Legend Senior Living has opened five residences since January 2018 in Colorado, Texas, Pennsylvania and Florida. Legend of Colorado Springs will open Fall 2020, and with Windsor Pointe, will bring the company's portfolio to 42 properties. For more information about availability, please call 904-203-170.
