Placemaking for minorities and older adults

By Chris Arnold

Inspired community living for older adults

Today's episode features Arun Paul, Founder of Priya Living, where he and his team create places where hearts sing and spirits soar. Arun started his place-making career at The Irvine Company, where he helped create best-in-class residential communities throughout coastal California. He then spent many of his formative years in the resort industry, where he co-founded two companies, both of which created several of the world’s most acclaimed resort communities.

Arun brings his unique experience with placemaking to his most personal project yet, Priya Living, a company he founded so that his own parents, and other immigrant families like his, would have a place to call home.
