$70 Million Terraces at Bonita Springs Begins Move-In Process





Residents Look Forward to Lifestyle at New Senior Living Community



BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – The Terraces at Bonita Springs, a new senior living community, has opened for residents and the move-in process is underway. About 300 older adults will be moving to The Terraces, and the community has created nearly 200 new jobs. The newest generation of senior living communities features a variety of upscale amenities and unique design elements to create a resort-like experience. Interior and exterior photo/video opportunities at The Terraces will be available for media on Wednesday afternoon, July 17.

“What makes it so attractive is the stunning architecture and design, and it’s clear that residents are excited about the look and this new lifestyle option,” says Ross Dickmann, executive director of The Terraces. “We’ve also assembled a great staff who are committed to our core values of hospitality, service and attention to detail.”

The move-in process will take place in choreographed stages over the next several weeks. Of the 144 one- to three- bedroom maintenance-free independent living apartment homes, approximately 90 percent are reserved. Nearly 70 percent of residents are couples.

“The move-in process is extremely well coordinated and we work meticulously with every family to make this a smooth transition,” says Pat Goheen, move-in coordinator for The Terraces. “When residents come in, it’s great to see the looks on their faces, because this is a senior living community unlike anything people have seen.”

Exterior features at the $70 million community include a large courtyard with a runnel fountain feature, multilane swimming pool, and bocce and tennis courts. The interior features a Mediterranean Revival design style and includes Italian- and Spanish-made furniture and décor, as well as original and commissioned artwork from around the world. Residents will also have a
