WesleyLife to break ground on new $29.5M senior living community in Johnston, IA.

On the coat tails of their 70th anniversary celebration, WesleyLife is scheduled to break ground this fall on a new $29.5 million upscale senior living community in Johnston, IA. The facility will be the fourth in the local metro area of Des Moines, and the eighth in the state of Iowa.

The community’s name, Brio, a WesleyLife Community for Healthy Living, carries significance for the community’s future residents and to WesleyLife’s President and CEO, Rob Kretzinger.

“Brio means ‘gusto,’ which is defined as ‘vigor or vivacity of style or performance.’ No matter a person’s stage in life, he or she is entitled to live with spirit and vigor. We couldn’t be more excited to offer Iowans another option to live this phase of their lives as healthfully, actively and purposefully as they desire.”

Pope Architects collaborated with WesleyLife in developing the master plan for this 120-unit community.
