17-story Belmont Village Senior Living Apartment Tower Opens in La Jolla


The 180-key Belmont Village Senior Living (BVSL) opened its doors this summer 2022.  The nearly 210,000-SF project features independent and assisted living for seniors, equipped with high-end services and amenities that are reminiscent of a five-star hotel.  Located minutes from Westfield University Towne Center, BVSL is developed by joint venture team Belmont Senior Living and Greystar.  JWDA provided full architectural services on the project.

The development has a focus of high-end service and food, with unit types including studios, one & two-bedroom units – with 53 units reserved for independent living, and 105 units for assisted living.  A memory care facility will be paired with a professionally managed fitness center, full service salon and spa, private screening room, bistro for casual dining and full-service dining room (with personal wine storage).  Other popular amenities include a swimming pool, outdoor fireplace and entertainment area and arts & crafts studio.  BVSL is the first to include a research lab by the University of California San Diego (UCSD Center for Healthy Aging) to study aging.
