Progress continues on the La Posada at Pusch Ridge development, with approval received from the Town Council of Oro Valley in June of an updated Conceptual Architecture plan for the beautiful 80-acre community. Property owned by La Posada west of North Oracle Road at First Avenue and Lambert in Oro Valley is an ideal setting for the development of another campus for Green Valley’s award-winning senior living provider.
An earlier plan for development of the Oro Valley property was put on hold mid-2018 due to critical shortages of construction sub-contractors and uncertainty of key materials.
Much of the initial site work has been completed on the 80-acre parcel. La Posada management and representatives are in ongoing contact with Town of Oro Valley officials to move the project design toward final approval for construction. In the two years since the original project was halted, La Posada’s management team has been updating concepts to enhance the design, construction quality, and livability of the project.
Final design approvals and groundbreaking of La Posada at Pusch Ridge are now expected in early spring, with an opportunity in the coming weeks for local seniors to participate in a Priority Sales Program, to learn more about reserving a residence in the new community. Move-ins are planned to begin in late 2024.
“We are excited about development of our second campus, with an opportunity to offer a new and wonderful lifestyle option for the residents of the Oro Valley area,” said Simon Davis, Chair of the La Posada Board of Trustees. The La Posada organization is led by Joni Condit, President and CEO.
La Posada is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Green Valley, dedicated to providing a stimulating and enriching environment for seniors. Established over 34 years ago, and sponsored by Tucson Medical Center, La Posada has an estimated annual impact of more than $50 million on the economy of Southern Arizona. La Posada currently employs more than 600 staff, and serves a community of nearly 800 residents. It maintains active community partnerships with area schools and service organizations. La Posada is recognized nationally as a leader in innovation and accountability in the field of senior living.
