LOS ANGELES JEWISH HOME BEGINS CONSTRUCTION ON $100M FOUNTAINVIEW AT GONDA
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Jewish Home has begun construction on the $100 million Fountainview at Gonda West Los Angeles Westside Campus. The 460,000-square-foot continuing care retirement community will be located at 12025 E. Waterfront Drive in the West Los Angeles submarket of Playa Vista.
Fountainview at Gonda will provide more than 500 Westside seniors with a full range of active living, healthcare and in-home services. It will contain 175 apartment units for independent living, as well as 24 assisted living and memory care.
In-unit amenities will include full kitchens, washer, dryers and terraces. Some of the larger units will also contain dens and media rooms.
The one- and two-bedroom units will range in size from 840 square feet to 2,380 square feet. Pricing will begin in the mid-$500,000s, according to Playa Vista’s website.
Los Angeles Jewish Home is developing the seniors community. C.W. Driver is building the project and Gensler is designing the new facility. Fountainview at Gonda is scheduled for completion in 2016.
“As the Baby Boomer generation begins to downsize their current living situation, they look for specialized communities that can offer amenities to match their current lifestyle,” says Mike Byrne, C.W.’s senior vice president. “This is one such facility that provides residents the opportunity to customize their lifestyle based upon their specific needs.”
The non-profit Los Angeles Jewish Home provides high-quality, comprehensive care for the area’s growing senior community. It is the largest single-source provider of senior housing in Los Angeles. The organization currently serves 4,300 seniors annually.
