Presbyterian Senior Living opens Vista Ridge in Chester County
Presbyterian Senior Living, a nonprofit based in York County, will hold the grand opening of its Vista Ridge project June 5.
Vista Ridge is part of a $24.5 million expansion of the Ware Presbyterian Village continuing care retirement community and is in Oxford, Chester County.
The new Pavilion Club House features restaurant and bistro-style dining, as well as private dining rooms. The community space also includes a cultural arts auditorium.
An adjacent building offers 31 one- or two-bedroom apartments, each with one underground parking space. The expansion also includes eight “carriage home ” style independent living duplexes, adding to the community’s existing 79 independent living villas, 52 assisted living apartments and studios and 137 skilled nursing accommodations.
“As we continue to expand and evolve our campuses, sustainability efforts are a major factor incorporated into our plans because of the long-term benefits,” said Rodney Fenstermacher, corporate director of construction and planned assets at Presbyterian Senior Living. “Vista Ridge uses geothermal heating and cooling – an investment that is expected to deliver a return of five to eight years. We’ve also included a system of 30 underground storage areas to manage storm water runoff.”
Presbyterian Senior Living provides services to approximately 6,000 seniors in 29 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and Delaware, with a range of health care, housing, and other related community services directed primarily to people 55 and over.
