The Arlington is a world-class continuing care retirement community located at Lely Resort in Naples, Florida. It offers residents a resort-style campus providing a comfortable and safe living environment. Upscale amenities include a full service wellness and fitness center with indoor pool and spa, fine and casual dining venues, a marketplace, a chapel, spa services, banking services, and a cinema. The 39 acre campus included 128 independent living apartments; 47 independent living villas; 42 assisted living units; 37 memory care units; and 44 skilled nursing beds. Sustainable elements include the use of native vegetation—eliminating irrigation and reducing maintenance, stormwater management, vegetated roof surfaces, the selection of materials containing recycled content, and daylighting and views.
Numerous facility amenities positioned between the assisted living and skilled care wings—and just off of the upscale lobby/welcome center featuring a hospitality nook and relaxing hearth sitting area—include a bistro, gift shop, salon, administrative offices, large conference room, and chapel (that doubles as a multi-purpose space). Additional second floor common spaces include a library and wellness center.
