Harbor Retirement Associates (HRA), a regional senior living development and operating company based in Vero Beach, Fla., continues its strategic expansion by opening four new communities this year with 13 more in the works. New planned communities in Delaware, New Jersey and Washington DC will expand HRA’s geographic footprint and add to its diverse portfolio of senior living communities. All the new construction and community openings represent a large expansion of the growing senior living company.

“We’re excited to continue rolling out our distinctive brand of senior living to new cities and markets,” said Tim Smick, CEO of Harbor Retirement Associates. “This latest expansion demonstrates our commitment to offering the very best in senior living to families across the country. All of these communities will provide meaningful jobs for local citizens, and we are very much looking forward to adding more residents and associates to the HRA family.”

Recent communities opened by HRA include HarborChase of Sarasota in Sarasota, Florida, HarborChase of Shorewood in Shorewood, Wisconsin, HarborChase of Naperville in Naperville, Illinois, and HarborChase of Plano in Plano, Texas. Nine additional HRA communities are currently under construction, including: HarborChase of McKinney in McKinney, Texas, HarborChase of Southlake in Southlake, Texas, HarborChase of Palm Beach Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, HarborChase of Park Cities in Dallas, Texas, HarborChase of Long Grove in Long Grove, Illinois, HarborChase of Mandarin in Jacksonville, Florida, HarborChase of Wildwood in Wildwood, Florida, HarborChase of Wilmington in Wilmington, Delaware and HarborChase of Wellington Crossing in Wellington, Florida.

Our new residents are going to joyfully discover new homes where they want to live, rather than somewhere they have to go.” 

Additional communities are also in the works. These new communities will add additional geographic areas to HRA’s regional footprint.
