With the exterior of the building painted and sidewalks being formed, officials from Carlton Senior Living say they are on schedule for the mid-March opening of Carlton Plaza of Davis, a senior living community.

The project, on a 2.5-acre site on Fifth Street between Cantrill and Peña drives, will feature 102 apartments for independent living, assisted living and memory care. The lodge-style décor planned for the three-story building will showcase the agricultural history of Davis.

“There is a shortage of senior living options in Davis,” said Philip Scott, president of Carlton Senior Living, in a news release. “As soon as we found this location near the new Davis Police Department building and adjacent to the popular Konditorei Austrian Pastry Café, we put the architects to work designing an efficient and stylish community.

“Our company is known for high-quality surroundings, an emphasis on activities and truly excellent food — attributes we know residents of Davis will appreciate.”

Forty-eight of the apartments are already reserved, with 80 percent of inquiries coming from Davis residents, Scott said. The independent living and assisted living residences at Carlton Plaza will range from studio to two-bedroom apartments. Up to 36 residents with memory care needs will share rooms for two.

Carlton Senior Living emphasizes resort-style dining using an abundance of local ingredients.

“That is something residents really enjoy,” said Stephen Kennery, senior vice president of operations and a 27-year veteran of the food service industry. “Every day we have two soups made from scratch and a variety of daily specials along with anytime dining that allows residents to enjoy meals at their own pace.”

The new community will employ up to 100 people in resident care, food service, administrative and maintenance positions. A shuttle bus will be available to take residents to appointments, shopping and on excursions.

Carlton Senior Living was founded by Tom MacDonald in 1986 after he encountered the challenges of being the primary caregiver for his mother. His experiences led him to build communities that placed an increased emphasis on activities, outings, quality meals and live entertainment.
