Top Senior Housing Developers in America 

With the Baby Boomer generation starting to age out of independent living, the top senior housing developers in the United States are showing why they’ve been in business for so long.  

Simply put, they’ve shown they can adapt.  

Like many of the new mixed-use developments popping up across the nation, senior housing is being built in the same way.

Multiple housing types are constructed on the same campus, so seniors can transition from an independent living unit into an assisted living unit without the hassle of a move.  There’s often also memory care or nursing areas as well. 

Also, these developers know that seniors enjoy communal areas, just like anybody else.

That’s why so many of these companies are adding fitness centers, gardens, pools, salons and more. These large developments are almost becoming destinations spots.

Let’s take a look at ten of the top senior housing developers in America and some of their current projects.
