Bradenton, FL Senior Care Facility Could be Model for Senior Housing in U.S.

A 52-bed senior care facility that went from a foundation to two finished stories in just one week on 14th Street West could be the model for things to come in the senior housing industry.

Starting last Monday, nearly 40 55,000-pound modular units manufactured by a Champion Homes of Lake City were carefully lifted onto blocks and slab and piled two stories high on the site of a former mobile home park. The resulting structure is the first of its kind in the United States, according to its developer, and may become a model for quickly meeting the needs of an aging population.

BSV Holdings, a Weston real estate investment company, expects Comfort Cove Senior Care to have the final touches put on its assisted living and memory care units by January, just seven months after the first construction worker drove onto the property. Brent Crego, the company's chairman, said that's at least two months ahead of the construction schedule for a structure built entirely on site.
