"We wanted to bring a state-of-the-art senior liv- ing experience to the Lowcountry." The community will feature its own movie facility, multiple pools, a fitness center with a yoga studio, and multiple food and beverage options. Kiawah Partners is the master developer of Kiawah Island and owner of the private Kiawah Island Club, which is home to golf courses, a spa, sporting club and private restaurants. Big Rock and Kiawah Partners plan to break ground on the com- munity before the end of 2018. The project team includes architect LS3P, landscape architect SGA Architecture and general contractor Balfour Beatty. Life Care Services will manage the new community upon completion, planned for the first quarter of 2020. Based out of Delray Beach, Fla., and Beverly Hills, Calif., Big Rock has opened two similar seniors housing communities in Florida in the past year. Over the past 30 years, the private real estate investment and man- agement firm has acquired, developed, financed and operated com- mercial real estate and seniors housing assets valued at more then $3 billion. When completed, the unnamed project will offer 200 units of independent living, assisted living and memory care on Kiawah Island.
