New continuing care community proposed for Playa Vista
Fountainview at Gonda Westside, a new continuing care retirement community, is planned to open in Playa Vista.
The development, which is anticipated to be completed in 2016, has begun marketing for prospective tenants at a newly opened Sales Center at 12025 Waterfront Drive in Playa Vista. Fountainview at Gonda Westside will feature 176 independent living residences as one- and two-bedroom units ranging from approximately 800 to 1,550 square feet.
“The community has been conceived as a healthy aging center and is the first of its kind to be planned in Playa Vista,” said Laurie Nussbaum, director of marketing. “As such, it will offer an upscale campus environment for seniors to live active, engaged lifestyles, making healthy aging the focus.”
Penthouse suites of up to 2,400 square feet will be located on the building’s sixth level. Underground valet parking will also be provided.
The contemporary design by the international architectural firm, Gensler, optimizes views, natural light and ventilation within residences while connecting with the outdoors and integrating with the Playa Vista community, a project spokesperson said.
Outdoor features will include numerous courtyards and terraces, a rooftop swimming pool, fitness center, garden, sun deck and entertainment area. Other planned amenities include gourmet dining venues, a state-of-the-art theater, full service salon and day spa, library and business center and a creative arts studio.
“Since Playa Vista offers a vibrant urban setting with restaurants, shops and parks, our future residents will benefit from this new urban lifestyle,” said Nussbaum. “Here, there are pedestrian and bike paths interconnecting community parks and open spaces.”
With an emphasis on healthy aging, Fountainview at Gonda Westside provides a continuum of care including 24 assisted living and memory care residences planned in secured areas as well as skilled nursing offered nearby. Fountainview at Gonda Westside is a nonprofit development affiliated with The Los Angeles Jewish Home family of communities.
The Fountainview at Gonda Westside Sales Center is open Sunday through Friday, closed Saturdays. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Sunday and Friday, when the office closes at 4 p.m. Appointments are appreciated and can be made at (424) 216-7788.
