Lenay Ruhl//September 22, 2016

Known as the North Community at Willow Valley, the building was upgraded both inside and out, with new services added for residents of the continuing care community in West Lampeter Township, Lancaster County.

Renovations covered three floors of the building and included 49,000 square feet of inside space and 32,500 square feet outside.

The project cost $4.7 million, according to spokesperson Maureen Leader.

The renovations have been underway for more than a year. The general contractor on the project was West Lampeter Township-based CCS Building Group LLC.

The updates touched nearly every common area in the building, including the kitchen and two public dining rooms. The lobby, piano lounge and reception area were also renovation.

New additions include a demonstration pastry kitchen and a coffee lounge.

Also new is 1,000 square-foot atrium that overlooks a courtyard with a fire pit, outdoor dining, and a barbecue area for residents. There is also a pond  with a waterfall, lighting and a footbridge.

Willow Valley is also in the process of adding a new, five-story apartment building called The Vistas to its property.

The $23.7 million project, which started in the spring, should be completed by summer 2017.
