It looks like a new senior housing development is on its way to Playa Vista, with design work from architectural firm Gensler. The 199 unit Fountainview at Gonda will offer a laundry list of on-site amenities, described by Playa Vista Today as follows:
The ground floor of the Fountainview at Gonda will be called the Gallery and features many areas for interaction and engagement with community amenities including multiple dining venues, create arts studio, theater, library, salon, card room, lounge and cafe oriented around a large interior courtyard.
Additionally, the rooftop features additional amenities for residents' use including two fitness pavilions, a swimming pool and a large sundeck. There is access to a cafe for outdoor dining as well as numerous lounging areas.
It's not particularly urban, but senior housing isn't supposed to be. Still, you can count me as a fan of Gensler's design for this project. The Fountainview looks modern and outdoorsy, which is the perfect look for the Westside.
The Fountainview joins another senior apartment development that was announced for Playa Vista in August.
