Property News

The site plan for a new senior complex at 6263 S. Parker Road was approved by the Centennial City Council Dec. 10 on a unanimous vote. The complex, to be called The Legends, will be built on 5.29 acres and will include 209 residences in a complex that will have 63,684 square feet of space.

There was extensive discussion of the site plan, and representatives of Dominium, the company building the project, drew comment from both residents and council members. The project will be built on land zoned for business park. Senior housing is a permitted use for land zoned business park.

Ben Taylor of Dominium, said his company has 45 years’ experience in building housing, with 30,000 units across the country.  The goal of Dominium, Taylor said, is to build homes “that people are proud to call home.” The units will be designed for seniors who are not ready to live in a nursing home or other similar facility that offers services to assist them.

The Legend will be handicapped accessible and have a “huge common area” and will feature events such as bingo tournaments and monthly birthday parties. It also will have a fitness center, Taylor said. There will be sidewalks all around the facility and prepared meals for residents who want to purchase them.
