As the visionary behind the Century Village concept, I am very proud of our rich history which began more than fifty years ago with the philosophy that by offering affordable housing and providing top quality recreational services, people would have an enjoyable way of life.
When I embarked on this endeavor, the idea of Century Village was very clear-cut. The concept was instead of 'going' on vacation, everyday life would be a vacation.
In the last five decades we have built four locations housing about 50,000 residents. We began as an affordable community that offered an array of amenities that included entertainment, athletics, and transportation in a secure, gated environment. We now have communities with baby boomers enjoying the Century Village way of life.
What has remained constant throughout the years is my concept and vision, the ability to have an affordable, enjoyable, and safe amenity-rich community. Our motto was and is: "Adding years to your life and life to your years."
To meet the ever-changing needs of residents, the clubhouses, each of which are over 100,000 square feet of space and are the centerpiece of every community, have been modernized. For fitness enthusiasts, there are state-of-the-art gym facilities, exercise classes, indoor and outdoor pools, shuffleboard, bocce, pickleball and tennis courts. Our residents can immerse themselves in computer classes, arts and crafts, hobbies, and enjoy over 100 Broadway-style live shows and current movies. In fact, except for Disney World, we have grown into the largest bookers of entertainment in the Southeast. In Pembroke Pines, a beautiful 18 hole golf course is yours to enjoy. Security services are provided to ensure residents can feel safe as they enjoy all the amenities Century Village has to offer. A transportation system is available for residents within the community, as well as outside the community to shopping and other activities located nearby each community. All these amenities are overseen by Cenvill's devoted and specially-trained management teams and their staffs.
I am humbled by our accomplishments and the fact that we strive to continuously improve the lifestyle of our ever-changing population.
It has been my privilege to watch the Century Village concept blossom from an innovative idea into a way of life for thousands of our residents.
