Griffin Living Solves Housing Problem for City and Seniors


Senior Housing Development Approved on Land Formerly Locked By Runoff

On Wednesday, August 19, 2020 the City of Temecula Planning Commission unanimously approved a Griffin Living Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility. The development will provide much-needed senior housing on a site that was near the center of town but previously unusable due to a water runoff.

10,000 Americans turn 65 every day, and the lack of suitable housing options for seniors has become a national crisis. Griffin Living Assisted Living will provide aging residents and their families a safe, beautiful dwelling place.

"This development will become a destination for aging residents of Temecula and those nearby who deserve the best and safest in assisted living," said Paul E. Griffin, Founder, CEO and President, Griffin Living. "Furthermore, the Temecula site was both a nuisance and an eyesore at a major intersection, and now will feature a new, thoughtfully designed development. Overall, this new facility will elevate the community and serve the aging population and their children who care for them."

Located at the southeast corner of Margarita Rd. and Solana Way, the approved 91,002 square foot facility will have two stories, with 107 units, 32 for memory care and 75 for assisted living. The planned amenities include private outdoor spaces (balconies and patios), a dog park, a theatre, golf putting greens, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a raised garden, an exercise room, a perimeter walking path, and an activity lawn. The entrance features a large fountain with an attractive porte cochere.

This is the culmination of 36 months of work between the developer, Griffin Living, various engineering and environmental impact firms, and the City of Temecula. The City reviewed the proposal and determined no significant impacts on the environment, taking into account biological resources, cultural resources, and geology and soils. The project received unanimous approval from the City of Temecula Planning Commission. Planning commissioner Turley-Trejo hailed the Griffin Living proposal as "a beautiful project that is a welcome enhancement." Commissioner Gary Watts added, "It looks wonderful, and is a well-needed project. Thank you."
