Construction of a senior independent living facility at the southeast corner of 89th and Glendale avenues is scheduled to begin at the end of the year.

Glendale City Council last week gave a unanimous thumbs up for the project dubbed Westgate Village. The project is less than a mile from Westgate Entertainment District. The 19-acre development is a joint collaboration between Sante Partners and Holiday Retirement.

The proposal to rezone and amend the general plan to allow for the development easily cleared the Planning Commission in August.

Under the proposal, about 6 acres of the site would be dedicated to a three-story senior independent living facility, housing approximately 175 units that are studios and one- and two-bedrooms.

Amenities include salon/barber shop, reading rooms, outdoor pool, fitness center and a formal dining room with a chef on staff, he said, adding that they were off limit to the public. Each unit also would have housekeeping services. Cost for each unit would average $2,800 a month, according to project representatives.

The project also sets aside 2.75 acres fronting onto Glendale Ave. as an expansion area for the senior independent living community with smaller-scale senior cottages or professional offices housing doctors or dentists who would serve the population in the development.

On the remaining 11 acres of the site KB Homes plan to build 63 detached single-family homes. The homes will range from 1,600 to 2,400 square feet and sell from $250,000 to $300,000 and be marketed at millennials and empty-nesters.

The ungated residential development plans to include a central open space, a ramada with barbecue grill and picnic table, tot lot and a large turf area for active recreation.

The project was approved with four stipulations, including LED streetlights on streets.
