BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sinai Residences of Boca Raton and the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County will celebrate the groundbreaking of South Florida's newest planned Life Care Community, a $250 million development, tomorrow, Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. The Sinai Residences project, which is scheduled to open in 2015, has been underway since 2007 and features 237 luxury units – of which 70 percent are already reserved.
Jewish Federation board members and senior staff, the Sinai Residences development team, local dignitaries, Boca Raton rabbinical leaders, and nearly 250 future residents will be in attendance. Sinai Residences of Boca Raton will be located on the north side of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County campus in Boca Raton, Florida. The Sinai Residences will fill nearly half of a 50 acre parcel that has been vacant on the Federation's West Boca campus since it first officially opened in 1991.
The creation of the Sinai Residences not only serves the need of the growing senior population in South Florida but also helps the Federation generate revenue. "After years of thoughtful planning, it's exciting to see all the pieces finally coming together," said Wesley E. Finch, Vice-Chair of Federation and President of Federation CCRC Development, LLC. "Upon completion, Sinai Residences of Boca Raton will be the centerpiece of our campus. Ultimately, it's about creating an environment that will attract the active, future residents who will become a part of our vibrant community."
The Sinai Residences development team, led by Greenbrier Development of Dallas, Texas, includes Suffolk Construction, Perkins-Eastman Architects, H.J. Sims & Co. investment bankers, Squire Sanders attorneys, Land Design South landscape architects and The Wantman Group engineers. In addition, Life Care Services, Inc. will be the manager of the new community. "We're fortunate to have the best team in senior housing available to lead and guide the development and management of this wonderful new community" Finch said.
The Sinai Residences will offer the highest standard of engaged senior living and feature a wealth of luxury services and amenities including hospitality, recreational and social services, cultural and academic pursuits, fitness programs, as well as gourmet dining with kosher dining available. Sinai Residences will also enjoy front-row access to the many Federation-sponsored cultural, social and educational events.
"As we anticipate our 2015 opening, we are thrilled to welcome future residents to our up-and-coming community," said Amy Linder, Director of Marketing for Sinai Residences. "Sinai Residences provides a resort-style, maintenance-free lifestyle that is designed to attract those who continue to pursue life with vigor. So far, that is what we have seen in our future residents."
The future residents who have made a reservation prior to groundbreaking have enjoyed discounted "charter member" pricing, as well as the opportunity to choose and customize their own apartments. (Fourteen varying floor plans, six of which are already sold-out, range in size from approximately 800 to 1,700 square feet.)
