Construction of Carlton Plaza Davis, a three-story senior and assisted living facility that the City Council approved more than three years ago, is finally underway at 2726 Fifth St.

Since work began in mid-January, crews have poured the foundation and erected most of the steel beams that will frame the first floor of the complex. Carlton officials project that the building will be finished by next April.

Once completed, the Carlton community will offer 108 independent or assisted living units surrounding a central courtyard, a separate area containing a private courtyard with 36 beds for residents who have memory care needs and “convenient access to health care offices and emergency services.”

Rental rates will vary depending upon the size of the units and the amount of assistance each resident needs, according to the Carlton Senior Living website.

Prospective residents will not have to buy in to the community or sign long-term leases, but rather will sign month-to-month rental arrangements.

The 110,000-square-foot facility will accommodate senior residents of all lifestyles: from those who can still live independently to those who need more intimate assisted living care such as for memory or other cognitive needs.

The property is bounded by Konditorei Austrian Pastry Cafe, 2710 Fifth St., to the west and Davis Waste Removal, 2727 Second St., to the south.

West of the bakery lie the Davis Police Department and the Eleanor Roosevelt Circle senior housing complex.

When the project was first under consideration, city Community Development staff members had raised concerns that construction of the senior housing would prohibit Davis Waste Removal from expanding its operations, but those concerns were addressed during the council’s approval process.

The City Council approved the senior living facility in February 2010, with a target date of construction set to begin that summer.

While Ann Francis, construction superintendent for Carlton, did not return messages for comment, city staffers said it may have taken longer than expected to lock down financing and all the permits necessary to get the project going.

“I don’t really know why it took the time it took,” said Katherine Hess, community development administrator.

The Carlton website says the facility will create 100 new jobs for personal care aides, administrative personnel, nurses, waiters and chefs.

Carlton Senior Living, based in Concord, operates 11 similar facilities throughout Northern California.
