Senior Living Community Breaks Ground in Aliso Viejo

Aliso Viejo officials and developers broke ground on the county’s first Belmont Village assisted-living building on Thursday, July 13.

Perched atop a hill overlooking Alicia Parkway, the site will soon be home to about 150 residences, in addition to a fitness center, salon, town hall and heated salt-water pool.

Located near Temple Beth El off Liberty, the Belmont Village facility’s new address will be 300 Freedom Lane.

Patricia Will, founder and CEO of Belmont Village, said Aliso Viejo was appealing because of its mountain views and low noise levels.

“It doesn’t get any better than that,” she said.

The 124,000-square-foot building, slated to open next year, will also feature an on-site nurse and could attract about 180 residents, Will said.

The Aliso Viejo complex is Belmont Village’s 13th building in California, Will said. Other locations include Burbank, Rancho Palos Verdes and San Diego.

“It’s got the spirit of a young, engaging, can-do place,” Will said of Aliso Viejo.

“I’m really looking forward to this project,” Mayor Dave Harrington said at the ceremony.
