Poncha Springs Senior Living
Featuring a main facility with 42 assisted living units, 16 memory care units, and 19 independent living cottages this project is the first continuing care retirement community in Chaffee County. The community, designed by Colorado Springs design firm, YOW Architects, will serve as the only continuing care retirement community in Chaffee County. The project is a new concept in senior living, which will create a traditional neighborhood as opposed to a single, institutional appearing building. Located on County Road 120, the 14 acre project will feature craftsman style architecture with a two acre park, pond, and walking trails. The project will seek to connect residents to each other, focusing on the socialization of the aging population with the site being designed to encourage residents to take walks and enjoy outdoor activities. In addition to the residences, there will be several amenity and program spaces provided including physical therapy, dining, community rooms, library, hair salon, coffee shop, florist, wine bar, and social spaces. Open Spring 2019.
