On Thursday (July 23, 2015), the Kenner city council approved a proposal by developer Validus Senior Living to build a 104,000-square-foot assisted living facility for 160 residents at the corner of Loyola and Vintage.
The facility will feature a memory-care clinic, a dog park, a swimming pool, a golf putting green, a walking path, ponds and a fishing pier.
This is just one of over 30 of these types of facilities planned to be built in markets that house NFL teams. Florida-based Developer Validus Senior Living has a partnership with the NFL Alumni Association to build these center around the country, and has arranged over $1 billion in financing from Piper Jaffray for development. Orlando will be the first city to open one of these centers.
The facility will be open to the general public, not just retired NFL platers.
The center is estimated to be open by September 2016.
