In the works since 2017, Broomfield celebrated the start of the Cadence Broomfield senior living development, on Wednesday.
The three story, 17,600 sq ft. assisted living facility, which is slated for the 4200 block of W. 121st Avenue, is being developed by Cadence Living and the Opus Group. It will include 165 units, 145 dedicated to assisted living with the remaining 20 allocated for memory care.
Cadence Living founder Eric Gruber said his company strives to become a part of communities where they build facilities to aid family connectivity.
“We’re here for the residents, but also very much for the families of the residents,” he said. “We believe it’s truly important for people to have an option to stay where they grew up and to be close to their children.”
Mayor Guyleen Castriotta noted that Broomfield is continuing efforts to increase housing supplies for all segments of the community, including seniors.
“It’s clear aging residents really want to remain in the communities they helped build,” she said. “Broomfield has strong senior services. This is a wonderful addition to our community.”
Deputy Chief of Police Roger Plunkett said those who reside in the new facility — expected to open in 2024 — can be assured that his department is looking forward to assuring they have a safe and protected environment.
“We are looking forward to standing here two years from today with a big set of scissors,” Grubber said.
