Vicar’s Landing has been a staple of the Ponte Vedra community for over thirty-two years, assisting countless amounts of people find a safe and comfortable location for retirement living. The facility has become extremely popular for its luxurious amenities, activities, and dining options. Their waitlist continues to grow, with dozens of hopeful residents fighting to snag a unit.
On March 18, Vicar’s Landing broke ground on their new Vicar’s Landing at Oakbridge facility, an extension and upgrade of the already desirable living facilities.
The original property is landlocked, with little option for expansion, so the management team at Vicar’s Landing was more than pleased to learn about the sale of land at the Oakbridge golf course less than half of a mile away.
“It is a great way to expand the great offerings that we have and add to our campus,” said Bruce Jones, CEO of Vicar’s Landing. “It gives us an opportunity to add complimentary amenities to what we have on our existing campus and meet more of the demand.”
Jones said that the new campus will offer a more modern take on retirement communities, with different dining options, new walking/green spaces, and a boatload of new amenities, all of which can be viewed from their design and sales center, which will open soon at the Oakbridge property.
The new campus will host 235 updated units, 175 of which will be independent living homes, available in either apartment, duplex, or triplex cottage style between 1,400 and 2,400 square feet; 42 of the units will be assisted living residences, and 18 will be memory care residences.
Though the groundbreaking just began, Jones said they expect the construction to go vertical this summer, and to move in excited residents by middle-end of next year.
Units at the new campus are already filling up, prompting the Vicar’s Landing team to expand the footprint of previously stated Phase I plans.
So far, community reaction to the new facility has been positive overall, since this will give many interested residents a better opportunity to be removed from the waitlist and placed into a unit.
“This [new campus] allows our local seniors to stay independent in their community and stay connected with their community, as well,” said Jones, speaking about the significance of such a large project. “This [will] add to our legacy.”
