A new Palm Springs senior living community that will cater to the LGBTQ community is aiming to create an inclusive, resort-style environment where residents won’t have to carry the burden of hiding their true selves.

Living Out is the vision of Los Angeles-based developers Loren S. Ostrow and Paul Alanis of KOAR International, who have a history of hotel and casino projects. They're joined by LuAnn Boylan, who with Ostrow sits on the board of directors of the LA LGBT Center and will head up sales and marketing efforts.

Construction will begin in January with the aim of a summer 2021 opening. The project sits on about 9 acres along East Tahquitz Canyon Way between South Avenida Caballeros and South Hermosa Drive, and will include 105 condos with either one or two bedrooms.

L.A. developer building 105 Palm Springs condos for LGBTQ seniors

As developers try to meet the needs of the growing 55-plus homeowner market, a Palm Springs project is using a novel twist.

Living Out Palm Springs will be what developers are calling a “first of its kind” for Southern California: a 105-unit condo complex on 9 acres in at Tahquitz Canyon Way and Hermosa Drive in Palm Springs, targeting LGBTQ seniors. KOAR International, a Los Angeles-based builder, will offer units in either a one-bedroom/one-bathroom configuration or two-bedrooms/two-bathrooms. Prices start just under $700,000.

Living Out will feature the “iconic Mid-Century Modern style for which Palm Springs is famous” and include community features such as poll, spa, fitness center, pickleball courts and a coffee bar/lounge.

“Knowing that too many LGBTQ seniors live in unsafe or even openly hostile environments, we wanted to address this issue that is near and dear to us by creating a safe and beautiful community for those 55 and over,” said KOAR owner Loren Ostrow. “Living Out Palm Springs was designed by, invested in and created by members of our community who recognize the unique needs we face as we begin the next chapters of our lives.”

Ostrow hopes this is the first of many Living Out complexes to be built nationwide around major LGBTQ communities.
