Third St., will be torn down in the fall to be replaced by a retirement community.

By Dec. 1, a San Diego-based developer plans to open a sales office for luxury townhouses, condominiums, and apartments.  Montage Senior Living will be “a very high-end, five-star retirement living community” on nine acres, developer Joe Pinsonneault said.  Units could start at $600,000 and could be as much as $2.5 million, Pinsonneault said.  [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
