Cambridge Village Optimal Living Breaks Ground on New Generation of Retirement Living Community

RALEIGH, NC–Cambridge Village Optimal Living® at Brier Creek broke ground on its newest version of Optimal Living®. The Cambridge at Brier Creek will offer 205 spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments designed to showcase the new generation of retirement living.

Most importantly, The Cambridge at Brier Creek offers a state-of-the-art wellness center, Cambridge Fitness.

Cambridge Village Optimal Living® communities offer a unique on-site concierge healthcare approach by providing primary care services as well as MedSpa services through Prime MD. “The Cambridge at Brier Creek successfully merges the elegance of a high-quality boutique hotel feel while teaching people how to live a quality lifestyle, enabling them to be their best and to live healthier and longer,” said owner Kendall Oliver. “Our mission is to provide for all your physical, spiritual and social needs within a single, welcoming community.”

“We pride ourselves in providing to our residents countless opportunities for serving and staying involved, whether serving on a resident committee, volunteering for church service, enjoying our well-appointed courtyard and grand lawn equipped with fire pits and bocce ball, or simply enjoying dinner and a movie,” stated COO Anita Vaughn. The Cambridge at Brier Creek will provide all of these opportunities without having to leave the security of this gorgeous community. The sales office is scheduled to open in March 2020, with the community completed in late Summer 2021.

Phase 1 is located on 6.36 acres of the 12.5-acre site, sitting at the corner of T.W. Alexander Drive and Brier Creek Parkway in northwest Raleigh. The Cambridge at Brier Creek is easily assessible to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport as well as all the niceties the Triangle has to offer. Conveniently located within walking distance to nice restaurants and great shopping, the community is also surrounded by new and expanding commercial and residential developments. More importantly, The Cambridge at Brier Creek is located across the street from WakeMed’s Brier Creek Emergency Care Unit ensuring excellent access to emergency care.

The Cambridge is on track with securing the same partnership to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy with WakeMed at Brier Creek as well.

Phase 1 will also include the construction of the trademarked wellness center, Cambridge Fitness at Brier Creek. Open to both residents and the public, the fitness center will offer over 25,000 sq. ft., of dedicated wellness space featuring an indoor heated lap pool, MedSpa, steam room, group exercise studios, and ample cardio/strength equipment. Full-time exercise physiologists, personal trainers and therapists will be readily available to assist with a variety of services including fitness assessments, group exercise classes, one-on-one training, and monthly health and wellness seminars.

Cambridge Village Optimal Living® was inspired by founder Kendall Oliver’s desire to create an environment where everyone would want to live a proactive lifestyle. Since then, his team has successfully launched retirement communities for active adults who have a high demand for all-inclusive, independent, healthy, active lifestyles and concierge services in both Wilmington and Apex, N.C. This new community is scheduled to open in Brier Creek in late Summer 2021.
