Wesley Palms Revitalization Awarded Top National Association of Home Builders Accolade

Phase Three Build Underway, Phase Four Begins Spring 2016

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 21, 2016) - Wesley Palms, a Front Porch full-service retirement community on San Diego's beautiful Mt. Soledad overlooking the Pacific Ocean, received the Best of 55+ Housing, Independent Living Community On the Boards, Gold Achievement Award from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The multi-phased redevelopment plan started in April 2015 continues with Phase Three and includes the construction of new patio homes, upgrades to the main building apartments and common areas and enhancements of the exceptional landscape.

The Wesley Palms revitalization is the latest endeavor in Front Porch's mission to create thoughtful and unique places that are respectful of the environment, celebrate the individual, and attend to the natural aesthetic of form and function.

Inspired by the original mid-century modern aesthetic, twenty-six new patio homes will be completed in Phase Three, replacing existing cottages. These new patio homes, together with the twenty-nine patio homes to be completed in Phases One and Two, will offer the best of open plan living and contemporary amenities. Along with the new patio homes and remodeled main building, the entire 35+ acres of mature landscaping will be improved including the addition of water-wise plants.

"This revitalization plan honors and celebrates Wesley Palms' extraordinary location, unique history and strong sense of community," said Wesley Palms Executive Director Ben Geske. "We have received an overwhelmingly positive response to this exciting redevelopment and all that it brings to the future of resort-style retirement living for Wesley Palms residents."
