Vivante Celebrates Year One

Luxury Retirement Living at its Finest

Orange County’s hottest retirement community, Vivante on the Coast, celebrated its first anniversary in October hosting an impressive Evening of Elegance. Over 300 people, including community residents, their guests and families, and Vivante staff members came together to celebrate the success of Vivante’s first year with a party befitting of such a luxurious community. An elaborate buffet featuring sushi, lobster, prime rib and a grand seafood tower lined the perimeter of the Mélange Restaurant lobby, and waiters passed hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Guests danced the night away to the sounds of a five piece jazz band.

With over 160 current residents and more scheduled to move in before year-end, Vivante is buzzing with life. “It’s thrilling to see our vision come to fruition,” said Cory Alder, President of Nexus Development Corporation, which is the developer of Vivante. “When we imagined the type of community we wanted to create, it included a lively atmosphere, happy residents, families and grandkids visiting, and fantastic food and entertainment, and we are happy to have achieved all of this in our first year.”

Resident satisfaction speaks for itself. Says Genevieve, a founding Vivante resident, “I’m the happiest person in the building. There is nothing about Vivante I don’t like. I love it all!” Pat, another founding resident shared, “I was one of the first residents to move into the new community. My apartment is just what I wanted, its home. So many amenities are provided you don’t need to even leave unless you choose. They offer transportation that takes you to appointments and other outside activities. The staff is always helpful, courteous and pleasant and able to answer your questions. All your needs are taken care of….I definitely made the right decision!”

Located near Hoag Hospital, Vivante is a state-of-the-art retirement community designed to meet the lifestyle and healthcare needs of Orange County’s aging population.

Another important part of the community is The Shores at Vivante on the Coast, a secure memory care facility located within the property, featuring 40 suites. The Shores provides specialized care for residents with cognitive impairment.

“What’s so surprising to people is that Vivante is actually something they can afford,” said Jennifer Kornmann, Vivante’s Executive Director. “I can’t tell you how many times I hear from prospective residents that Vivante’s rates are on par with those of other local communities they’ve toured. Resident satisfaction is our number one priority, and offering a luxurious living experience at an affordable price is something we are proud to do.”
