LAS VEGASMorningStar Senior Living and Confluent Senior Living have achieved a significant milestone as the project partners broke ground on MorningStar Senior Living at The Canyons, the joint venture’s first development in the state of Nevada.

The 196,000-square-foot Las Vegas property is a four-story senior living community comprised of 168 total units, inclusive of 95 for independent living, 49 for assisted living and 24 for memory care. The community is slated to open to new residents by summer 2024.

“This groundbreaking represents another notable achievement for our team and our project partners at MorningStar. Not only have we officially established a presence in this high barrier to entry market, but we overcame obstacles to ensure this project remained on track in delivering a first-class option to a region in need of this type of luxury residential experience,” said Matt Derrick, vice president of development at Confluent Senior Living.

MorningStar and Confluent are recognized as industry trailblazers behind the “Whole Health Standard,” a design and development approach that implements comprehensive, holistic measures prioritizing the latest protections for residents’ physical health while advancing features essential to mental health. As the partners commence construction, this standard-setting initiative will characterize The Canyons.

“Since our inception, MorningStar’s unique mission ‘to honor, to serve, to invest’ has set us apart from other senior living companies,” said Matt Turner, managing partner at MorningStar. “The Canyons reflects these core values and the foundation of our partnership with Confluent. The community is designed from the ground up to offer Vegas’ seniors elegant, comfortable suites, luxury amenities, and a compassionate, responsive hospitality and care team.”

MorningStar at The Canyons draws upon contemporary architecture and design elements to create a modern and inviting space for community life. Welcoming common areas allow seniors to comfortably age in place, including indoor and outdoor dining venues, pool and spa, fitness center and clubroom terrace with views of the Vegas Strip and mountains to the west. A complement of wellness programs based on the Whole Health Standard will meet residents’ social, intellectual, physical and spiritual needs.

The Canyons is located adjacent to the master-planned Summerlin community on the westside of Las Vegas. TPC Las Vegas, an 18-hole championship PGA TOUR golf course, is located to the immediate East, with the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area minutes away. The Summerlin Hospital Medical Center is nearby, while downtown Summerlin offers dining,
shopping and entertainment venues. The sights and sounds of the Vegas Strip are just 20 minutes away.

Confluent Senior Living, a subsidiary of Denver-based Confluent Development, serves as the project owner and MorningStar Senior Living as operator. MorningStar at The Canyons will represent the 14th joint venture across six states for the co-developers and project partners.
