Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility Planned in Oceanside
Earlier this week, the City of Oceanside released an environmental mitigated negative declaration (MND) for the Sunrise Assisted Living Facility project located on the northeast corner of College Boulevard and Mesa Drive.
The applicant, North County Community Partners, LLC, proposes to build both an assisted living and memory care unit totaling 90 senior assisted living units with 115 beds, within a two story, 78,100 square feet (SF) building. The building would include studio, one- and two-bedroom (shared) units, consisting of a living area, bathroom, and a small refrigerator with sink. The units would not contain kitchens or cooking facilities. The proposed project would also include common areas such as a grand foyer, parlor, bistro, private dining room and facility kitchen, as well as general dining, activity and staff rooms.
Construction of the Sunrise Facility would result in the removal of 68 parking spaces located on the eastern edge of the Lighthouse Christian Church’s paved parking lot. These 68 parking spaces would be relocated to the western side of the project site, west of the existing church building
Designed by HPI Architecture, the proposed building would be of a suburban residential design compatible with its surroundings. The building will include elements such as shingle siding and stucco finishing, brown, white, and taupe paint color, stone veneering, asphalt shingles, and wood privacy fencing.
Construction is expected to start around February 2021 and take approximately 15 months to complete.
