Felicita Vida is an assisted living community located near horse ranches and nature preserves.  The project is designed to minimize neighborhood concerns pertaining to setbacks, noise, traffic, lighting, and views.  It also provides an appropriate transition between the residential and commercial uses adjacent to the site.


Varied rooflines imitate the combination of several buildings and present the project with a village-like appearance.  The building is painted in earth tones and incorporates decorative stone on various elements.  Other exterior design elements include patios, covered walkways, tower features, and decorative wood trims.


Along with spacious apartments, Felicita Vida offers a central courtyard with an interior dining area and bar and two memory gardens.  Other features include a movie theater, two beauty salons, multiple activity rooms, a cafe, a fitness center, and a card room.
