BRADENTON, Florida - The $15.9 million second phase of Water’s Edge of Bradenton celebrated its Grand Opening on Wednesday, December 14 with an event and a ceremonial Christmas tree lighting.
National Church Residences broke ground on the three-story expansion in December 2014, less than a year after acquiring the building from Florida Christian Homes.
The Water’s Edge of Bradenton Phase II building offers 80 units of Independent and Assisted Living in a 77,589 square foot building. The entire third floor of the new facility is dedicated to residents who require Memory Care services for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Among those who were featured speakers at the event were Manatee County Commissioner Charles Smith, National Church Residences President and CEO Mark Ricketts, and Chairman of the National Church Residences Board of Directors, Al Rupiper.
Water’s Edge of Bradenton is a three-time winner of the Bradenton Herald People’s Choice Award for Favorite Retirement Community.
