Presbyterian Senior Living adding more senior housing in Lancaster, PA
Named Westminster Place, the building will have 61 income-based independent-living units, campus administrator Paul Taylor said.
The organization based in Dillsburg, York County, purchased a 13-acre tract from Highland Presbyterian Church, adjacent to the church’s grounds on Oregon Pike, he said.
“We had previously been affiliated with a home in Lancaster and wanted to get back into the area,” Taylor said.
Presbyterian Senior Living purchased the Long Home, a Lancaster personal-care facility at 200 N. West End Ave., in 2009 and plans to move the 32 residents to the Long Community.
The first building at the community will be completed in December and will contain the personal-care living space as well as 52 apartments, Taylor said.
Westminster Place is slated to be finished in summer 2012, he said.
A third building is planned; the organization is working on approvals through Manheim Township, Taylor said.
Taylor said he could not provide the total cost of the project.
Presbyterian Senior Living hopes to complete all three buildings by the end of 2013, he said. The nonprofit owns 24 campuses; 21 of them are in Pennsylvania.
Benchmark Construction Co. Inc. in West Earl Township, Lancaster County, is the general contractor. Noelker & Hull Assoc. Inc. in Franklin County designed the buildings.
