The Team

A team of architects, engineers and senior care specialists is working to create a high-quality care facility that fits the character of the surrounding neighborhood and provides outstanding service for residents and their loved ones.

The team is led by John DeWald, who is based in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. John specializes in creating lifestyle communities that bring sustainable features to urban and rural development. John’s portfolio includes senior care facilities, single-family homes, transit-oriented and mixed-use developments and “agrihoods,” a type of cooperative community that centers around a farm. Most of John’s projects are located in North San Diego County, San Diego, Hawaii and the Midwest. John serves on the boards of trustees for the San Diego Botanic Garden and the Pacific View Academy of Arts and is a former president of the Downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association.

He has assembled a team of highly-experienced designers and senior care experts. Many of them live and work in North County and understand its unique charms and sensitivities. The team includes:

Douglas Pancake Architects - Care Facility Architect (Costa Mesa)

Pasco, Laret, Suiter & Associates - Civil Engineer (Solana Beach)
