Official opening of a new apartment complex for active adults at Campus Pointe

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) – Maravillosa is located steps from the restaurants and entertainment of Campus Pointe, across from Fresno State.

The resort is designed for residents 55 and over who wish to continue leading an active lifestyle. They can enjoy a gym and a swimming pool.

Units help fill a void.

“We need more housing in the city of Fresno,” said Tyler Maxwell, Fresno City Council member. “The increasing demands demand that we meet the housing needs of our community for all age groups.”

Wednesday’s ribbon cut means all 142 units are now available for rent.

Studios will start at around $ 1,100 per month. One-bedroom units start at around $ 1,500, while two-bedroom apartments will start at $ 2,000.

Tracy Kashian believes the proximity to campus will also attract those willing to downsize.

“Take a class, photography, something really fun,” she said. “Take a walk, have dinner or meet friends for coffee.”

Residents will be able to start moving into apartments in January. State and local leaders came to see the finished product.

“I am a big believer in intergenerational housing where seniors can live in communities where they can walk to amenities, restaurants and movie theaters,” said California State Treasurer Fiona Ma.

Maravillosa translates to “wonderful” or “wonderful”.

Many were happy to see that a community garden will be made available to residents to grow fruits and vegetables.

Some of the younger people who visited the units said they wished they were 55 so they could move in.
