Coral Gables approves Belmont, Baptist Health senior living project

Belmont Village Senior Living and Baptist Health South Florida have received unanimous approval from the Coral Gables City Commission to build Belmont Village Coral Gables, a premier mixed-use senior living community.

Belmont Village Coral Gables will offer residents luxury senior living, wellness, and first-class elder care within an urban, amenity-rich, and socially-focused setting, the developers said. The mixed-used development at 4111 Salzedo St., near the Shops at Merrick Park, will encompass 232 private apartments for independent living, assisted living and memory care and 18,388 square feet of ground floor retail and commercial space.

The 10-story building, designed by Corwil Architects, will also feature a ground-floor Healthy Living Center by Baptist Health. The project also includes a three-story podium garage, courtyard, and landscaped pedestrian paseo.

“As strategic and capital partners with Baptist Health South Florida, our joint venture was created to re-imagine the integration of hospitality and healthcare in seniors housing with Coral Gables being our first in a series of communities planned for the region,” said Patricia Will, co-founder and CEO of Houston-based Belmont Village Senior Living, which owns and operates 31 senior living communities nationwide and in Mexico City. “We look forward to integrating our award-winning programs and high quality care to change the paradigm for senior living in South Florida.”

“Our partnership with Belmont Village is a natural fit as both organizations share the same dedication to providing high-quality, compassionate care,” said Ana Lopez-Blazquez, executive vice president and chief strategy and transformation officer, Baptist Health South Florida. “Together we have the potential to reinvent health and wellness for the senior population in our region.

Additional amenities at the senior-focused community will include multiple dining venues, transportation services, a sports lounge, theater, arts parlor, library, beauty salon, great room, screening room, music room, town hall, well-trained staff, including a licensed nurse on-site 24/7, and Belmont’s signature leading edge enrichment and social programs, which are designed to keep residents active so they can thrive physically, socially and mentally.

Each Belmont Village community is built to purpose and licensed throughout the building to provide a blended model of care that offers flexibility for residents if needs change, and allows couples with varying health or cognitive needs to stay together. As a leader in developing university-led, research-based programs, Belmont Village offers residents a range of programs to support a Whole Brain Fitness lifestyle. This includes the Company’s award-winning, comprehensive therapeutic program, Circle of Friends, to specifically address the needs and abilities of residents with Mild Cognitive Impairment and early stage memory loss.

Belmont Village Coral Gables is the first in a series of communities planned by Baptist Health South Florida and Houston-based Belmont Village Senior Living, and is the second facility in Florida for Belmont Village. Belmont Village Fort Lauderdale, a new luxury senior living community on Seminole Drive near the Galleria shopping center has 204 private apartments and is scheduled to open to early this summer.

Construction on Belmont Village Coral Gables is being handled by Moss Construction Management and is slated to begin this fall.

His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico.
