The Village Center

The Village Center has a small village atmosphere providing housing, commonality, services, amenities, employment, shopping, education, recreating, and a sense of place for residents.

In this mixed-use neighborhood residents and visitors of all ages will congregate.  This area was designed with amenities that residents, adult children and grandchildren alike will enjoy. Your extended family and friends will love visiting you!

Facing the central plaza are shops, including a bakery, the main restaurant, a sports bar/grill, a sundry shop, a hardware store, hair and beauty salon, and professional offices as well as a rose garden, bandstand, and other features.

Residences in the Village Center are both Assisted and Independent Living units, with two bedrooms and two baths that range from 1,320 to 1,800 sq ft, and several smaller one-bedroom units.

Each private residence offers a spacious living area, dining and kitchen and has a generous patio or balcony overlooking activity on the esplanade.

Centrally located and adjacent to the Event Green and nature trails, life in the Village is vital and social with everything close at hand.
