History

 

Capstone Village first opened in 2005, occupying 24 acres along the eastern edge of The University of Alabama campus. The facility’s prime location and gracious amenities made it a preferred living option for active seniors including published authors, working artists, retired couples and a wide variety of others who chose to focus on everything life had to offer beyond the necessary maintenance and routine chores that accompany home ownership.

The University of Alabama purchased Capstone Village in 2009 with a vision to further integrate it into the campus community while strengthening opportunities for residents through University partnerships.

This growing list of value added amenities includes:

  • 24-hour security
  • Access to UA facilities such as the Recreation Center and campus libraries
  • Access to classes offered by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
  • Membership to the University Club
  • Access to campus transit and Capstone Village complimentary transportation
  • Opportunities to attend Crimson Tide athletics events
  • Tickets to campus cultural events

The 228,000-square foot Capstone Village continues to differentiate itself from other retirement communities by providing a lifestyle option that connects lifelong learning with the fulfillment of the real needs and wants of retirees, such as full apartment maintenance and chef prepared cuisine. With 108 apartments, 22 garden homes, 13 assisted living suites and 16 memory care studio apartments, as well as recent renovations to improve health care and dining options, Capstone Village is A LEGENDARY PLACE TO CALL HOME.
