Legal & General expands its urban later living business with new site in Walton-on-Thames
Guild Living, Legal & General’s new operator and developer of urban later living accommodation, announces the acquisition of a prime 2.5 acre town centre site in Walton-on-Thames (‘Walton’). Having launched in Q2 2019, this site represents the third scheme currently under development for Guild Living, as it aims to deliver over 3,000 new homes in the next five years to meet the UK’s longevity and urbanisation needs. Subject to planning, the Walton site will deliver around 300 new age-appropriate homes for the local area.
Set in vibrant urban environments, Guild Living is striving to make a real impact on the way we age in UK cities, stepping out of the mould of traditional retirement operators and developers. Not only will its communities combine beautiful architecture and interiors, but it will focus on ground breaking and academically-accredited wellness programmes and activities, to support ageing happily, healthily and enabling members to live their best later lives. Members of a Guild Living community will be able to live independently, with flexible and supportive care available if and when needed.
