York County-based Presbyterian Senior Living on Thursday broke ground on a $10 million expansion project at a retirement community in Centre County.

Westminster Place at Windy Hill Village will include a 48-unit senior rental apartment building. The project will expand on a community that already serves 179 people in residential living, personal care, memory support, skilled nursing and rehabilitation and affordable housing options.

Being built by Silver Spring Township-based R.S. Mowery & Sons Inc., which does business as Mowery, the Philipsburg facility will be one of less than 50 buildings in the country to incorporate a so-called passive house design. The design reduces energy consumption through better insulation and energy-efficient equipment, among other factors.

According to Presbyterian Senior Living, the building will require 86 percent less heat and 46 percent less cooling than a standard building. Utilities per unit are estimated to cost $50 per month, about half the expense of a conventional system.

The four-story building will include 37 one-bedroom units and 11 two-bedroom units. Eight of the 48 units will be market-rate apartments with rents ranging from $811 to $1,086 per month. The remainder will be tax-credit rentals with income limits applied to applicants.

The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, a state-affiliated housing agency, awarded $7.7 million in tax credits to the project.

Westminster Place is expected to be done by late spring or early summer 2018, officials said.

Presbyterian Senior Living, a nonprofit organization, serves about 6,000 senior citizens in 30 locations in the Mid-Atlantic region.
