Vivante Senior Housing


Vivante Senior Housing Project  . . .  as of January, 2019
City reviewing application

Project Overview:  This is a proposal to build a 153-bed, 6-story senior assisted living and memory care facility on the Orange County Museum of Art property in Newport Center (Fashion Island), which was the location of the now-abandoned Museum House condo tower proposal.

Why We Were Watching:  SPON originally understood this project could be built entirely within the existing institutional land use designations and zoning.  The City’s description now suggests approval will require both a General Plan amendment and zoning changes.  Such changes to the voter-approved land use designations are always of concern.  This request is particularly strange because the similar-sounding Harbor Pointe Senior Living project was said to require a change to a “Private Institutions” land use designation, which is the designation the OCMA property already has.
