Stoneridge Creek expansion complete

Project includes 151 new homes, additional amenities

An expansion project at Pleasanton’s Stoneridge Creek senior living community has ended after more than three years of development and construction.

The expansion has added 12 villas (single-story homes), 56 Garden Terrace homes and 83 apartment homes, as well as a new fitness center, dining venue and an outdoor heated lagoon-style pool to the 50-acre complex in eastern Pleasanton that is already home to more than 750 seniors.

The additions to the complex, which finished construction this fall, was done in order to not only improve the quality of life at the center but to also accommodate the growing number of seniors as baby boomers age through their senior years, according to Stoneridge Creek officials, who noted that all of the new units are occupied or set to be claimed by wait-listed seniors.

“It’s an exciting time for Stoneridge Creek to grow our mission, serve more seniors, and help provide them and their families a secure future,” Zeke Griffin, executive director for Stoneridge Creek, said in a statement.

Stoneridge Creek first opened in 2013 just down the road from the El Charro Road-Stoneridge Drive intersection, excavation work on the expansion project began in fall 2015, with the actual building construction work started in the later half of 2016.

“Residents have waited years to move into this second phase of the community, and we’re thrilled to have it fully completed,” Griffin added. “Stoneridge Creek brings together all the elements to maximize independence and provide life-enriching services and wellness for seniors living in the Bay Area.”

Stoneridge Creek also offers its residents a movie theater, dog park, putting green, bocce ball court, indoor swimming pool, business center and a new rose garden.

This is a beautiful complex. Unfortunately it's for the wealthy. There is NOTHING in town for middle income seniors. We don't qualify for lower income complexes like Ridgeview Commons and the other option is Stoneridge Creek. Too bad.
Once again..it's for the rich.
Shame on this town that was once a lovely place to live, raise a family and grow old.

Apples, what you state is so sadly TRUE. It’s a shame. P-town ain’t what it used to be, especially these days with catering to the wealthy!

I would love it if the staff at Pleasanton weekly added a link to the main topic of conversation, in this case Stoneridge Creek.

Thank you!

Prior: Would I want to live in Union City, after Pleasanton, ? No
Acacia Creek in Union City is a 305 acre campus off Mission Blvd, and yes, it is my choice of a place to spend our retirement years.
Call me, set up a tour. You may be surprised cost are similar to Stoneridge Creek.
