An academic senior village nestled in the Rincon Valley will soon have room to grow its unique population.

The Academy Village was founded about 20 years ago by former University of Arizona President Henry Koffler with a vision to provide retiring professors, scholars and artists a place to retire from work, not life.

Residential development around the Arizona Senior Academy floundered during the housing crisis but a team of local developers have reignited home construction.

Developer Dabdoub Acquisitions and homebuilder Miramonte Homes have broken ground on the first of 110 planned homes in the village, near Old Spanish Trail and Camino Loma Alta.
