In collaboration with Watermark Retirement Communities and The Freshwater Group of Tucson, The Weitz Company is pleased to announce the groundbreaking of Hacienda at the River. Weitz is serving as general contractor for the $21 million project.

“The Weitz Company was honored to be selected to build this progressive retirement community that will provide the best possible care for its residents,” said The Weitz Company Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Harrison. “We look forward to working with Watermark Retirement Communities, The Freshwater Group and the many talented men and women who will apply their time and talents to complete this impressive facility.”

Once complete, the new community will feature a 74,000-square-foot, two-story healthcare center offering short-term, long-term and hospice care. Hacienda at the River will include a 50-bed rehab unit, 12 long-term nursing care beds and 12 hospice beds. Also included are 69 residences (offering assisted living and memory care) spread over a village of 43,000 square feet of the single-story homes.

The property will also house a 1,600-square-foot stable building for equine therapy available to the residents.

Full site development of the 6.5-acre site located on East River Road in Tucson began in October 2015.
