The idea of a senior living community at this location was embraced by the city and is a key component to what Apple Valley calls the Central Village: a walkable, multifaceted, nearly 30-acre redevelopment in the heart of Apple Valley. The design team felt a particular obligation to create a welcoming, vibrant environment full of unique amenities where residents feel at home throughout the community. The permanent residents and their regular visitors frequent the neighborhood restaurants, stores and recreational areas.
