As today is Veterans Day, it seems most appropriate to mention there is a new senior living community being developed in Jacksonville, Florida that will serve, among others, the large veteran population surrounding the Mayport Naval Base and Air Station. Developers David Kirkland, Carson McCall and Wayne McCall are leading the effort to build Anthem Lakes and will enlist Perry-McCall Construction and PQH Architects for the project. A majority of the units (83) will be for assisted living, while 34 will be designated for memory care and 20 for independent living. Also, a portion of the memory care wing will be set aside for veterans with mild brain trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder, including veterans from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Robyn Cunningham and Adrian Hartman of Love Funding secured a $19.7 million construction loan through HUD with a low rate for a 15-month construction period and for a subsequent 40-year term. Happy Veterans Day!
