Senior living has a new look and it’s coming to Miami, as Allegro opens it newest building in Downtown Dadeland.
Allegro, a leader in the senior living industry for more than a half-century, will open the luxury residential building this spring, creating a vibrant and amenity-heavy space for Miami’s growing senior population. In addition to the upscale apartment offerings, residents will have access to multiple dining options, pool deck, rooftop terrace, fitness center, full-service salon and more.
“Allegro, as a company, does everything very purposefully, and it’s a value-based business,” says Linda Price, executive director for the Dadeland location. “It’s all about people, and that is a top-down practice, from the CEO on down. We will focus on inspired experiences for our residents.”
And for Allegro and its team, an inspired lifestyle is a focus that starts from the very beginning. Price says she and her senior living advisors meet with each and every potential resident to gauge their needs and expectations, building a diverse lifestyle program, classes, outings and social events. Price says resident culture will include everyone from doctors to artists. “We want to deliver a true independent lifestyle and culture in this community,” she says. “Residents create the community, but we’re here to help shape and build.” That means an in-house Lifestyle Director, whom Price says leads the charge in creating a “robust curriculum,” and giving residents a chance to pursue passions that may have passed them by in the daily deluge of work and family. “It can be hard. We get caught up in life,” says Price. “We want to allow people to continue to dream and pursue those dreams.”
Price also says that Allegro always has an eye toward creating a luxury space that is welcoming for families, building a community culture that embraces adult children and grandchildren, thanks to a game room, theater and private dining spaces that encourage socialization with families and grandchildren. “Our goal is always to have families come, to have the grandkids come,” she says. “Allegro will be their home and we encourage families to spend time here.”
Price herself brings another level of service to the space, blending a deep background in five-star hospitality as well as time within the senior living community to build a luxe residential experience in the Dadeland location. “It’s luxury that is meant to be lived in. Tasteful, contemporary and understated with each space encouraging an active and independent lifestyle,” says Price, who also notes that Allegro brings the latest dining trends to the community. “Residents will enjoy dining spaces with different menus and identities including a chop house concept, bar and bistro with casual fare and outdoor dining spaces. Each menu is expertly crafted with unique, fresh ingredients and appreciation of local culture.”
Location, too, was a key factor in creating the community. The building sits within walking distance of both Dadeland Mall and Publix and is just a short ride from Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Coral Gables’ Miracle Mile, multiple parks and top-notch medical facilities. Apartments span from one-to-three bedroom options (as well as penthouses) and offer a variety of floor plans, with each boasting high-end finishes and balconies. Apartment amenities include spacious gourmet kitchens, ample storage and expansive terraces and patios. Fitness options, too, focus on an active lifestyle. Residents will have access to a comprehensive class schedule of strength, balance, yoga, aquatics and more. “From a wellness perspective, one of our goals is to inspire residents to stay active and preserve a higher quality of life,” says Price. “We want to empower our residents to exceed their own expectations: mentally, physically and emotionally.”
For potential residents, visits are by appointment only and include a meeting with a senior living advisor and tour of the property. “We love getting to know people and welcoming them into our Allegro family,” says Price. “We’re always aiming to create a truly inspired experience.”
