Emerson Lakes, a brand-new Erickson Senior Living community coming to Lakewood Ranch, Fla., in 2026, is accepting Priority List applications! 

By joining Emerson Lakes' Priority List, you are able to explore your retirement living options with peace of mind, while holding your spot in line for a maintenance-free apartment home. 

"Demand for the vibrant Erickson Senior Living lifestyle is at an all-time high, but people like to consider their options carefully and even discuss them with family members," says Adam Zubowsky, Emerson Lakes' sales director. 

"Plus, it's completely risk-free to join!" he adds. "A onetime $1,000 deposit, which is fully refundable at any point, grants you right of first refusal on your desired apartment home. If you like what you're hearing and seeing about Emerson Lakes, it's definitely a good idea to join."

Proactive planning

While construction is set to begin soon, retirees are already starting to imagine what their living spaces will look like in Emerson Lakes' modern apartment homes. 

"We already have floor plans drawn up for one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath; two-bedroom, two-bath; and two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath apartment homes," says Zubowsky. "By visiting the Sales and Information Center to see our quartz countertops and cabinet packages, you will get a sense of the high quality finishes we'll be offering." 

Zubowsky, who was previously on the sales team at Avery Point, the Erickson Senior Living community in Richmond, Va., has found that people who join the Priority List have a better experience with planning and moving. 

"By being proactive and joining the Priority List," he explains, "you have more time to envision your life here and learn more about everything the community has to offer."

Stay informed

Ready to get the inside scoop on all things Emerson Lakes? The Priority List has you covered. 

Members can preview renderings of the state-of-the art amenities, including a fitness center, walk-up bar, and kayak launch; hear from company leaders about the community's top-notch dining and financial strength; and receive regular construction updates via email. 

"As we get updates on floor plans, pricing, building details, and timelines, we share information with Priority List members," says Zubowsky. "But if you're interested in speaking with a sales team member to learn more, schedule an appointment at the Sales and Information Center."

Stop on by

Located just a short drive from the Emerson Lakes construction site, adjacent to the Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Outpatient Care office in Bradenton, Fla., the Sales and Information Center is staffed with knowledgeable sales experts. 

By scheduling an appointment for an initial visit or attending an informational event (for the first time), the $150-per-person, nonrefundable Priority List processing fee is waived--if a commitment to the Priority List is made the same day. 

"If you're unsure about joining, no worries! You can continue to visit the Sales and Information Center to learn about community updates, but you'll have to pay the processing fee if you decide to join the Priority List later on," says Zubowsky. 

Don't wait!

The Sarasota-Tampa area was named among the top 10 places to live in the country and the top spot in Florida by U.S. News & World Report.

"Demand for housing here is extremely high, and prospective residents from all over the country have expressed that Emerson Lakes is the perfect place to spend retirement," says Zubowsky. "You don't want to miss out!"

Peter and Mary Zimmermann are glad they secured an apartment home at Siena Lakes, a sister Erickson Senior Living community located in North Naples, Fla., when they did. 

"We were one of the first to commit to living at Siena Lakes, and everything we have experienced at this one-of-a-kind senior living community has been beyond our expectations," says Peter. 

Zubowsky notes that, like Peter and Mary, many Erickson Senior Living residents across the country are thankful they acted sooner than later.
