COVID-19 has changed nearly everyone’s way of life with quarantines, masks, and social distancing becoming our new norms. Everyone has altered plans, and some businesses have even closed. But, Willow Valley Communities reports an atmosphere of optimism among residents and prospective residents for the future of senior living communities in Lancaster and beyond. Work on our newest construction project, SouthPointe at Lakes, continued throughout 2020 and is on schedule—much to the anticipation of its newest residents, who have started moving in.
SouthPointe at Lakes, located at the southernmost end of Willow Valley Communities’ beautiful Lakes Campus, features 88 modern, yet classic, villas. In addition, 120 new deluxe apartment homes are coming soon to the community, known as SouthPointe Village. Construction of the new apartments is anticipated to begin in the first quarter of 2021.
SouthPointe at Lakes is our last construction project on our 210 acre campus in Lancaster County. Selections of the 88 SouthPointe villas began in April of 2019 and sold out within 6 months. The first new SouthPointe residents moved into their brand new villa homes in early August. These new residents met each other during SouthPointe future resident holiday socials and during a celebratory groundbreaking champagne toast before the emergence of COVID-19. Now that they are moving in, these new residents are forming a new, warm neighborhood community—all while following safety protocols.
SouthPointe Village will consist of five, three-story buildings with eight apartments per floor. These 120 residences are specially designed and appointed with a variety of distinctive high-end finishes and smart floor designs. Residents will be able to choose either a 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath floor plan or a 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath with study floor plan. The newly constructed apartment homes will also feature easily accessible underground parking, protected from the elements.
SouthPointe at Lakes residents will enjoy all the benefits of the maintenance-free, exceptional lifestyle that Willow Valley Communities is known for. Award-winning amenities across our campus include:
- An exclusive Design Studio offering complimentary design services to customize the finishes of any residence style.
- An 80,000 square-foot Cultural Center with 500-seat Performing Arts Theater, Art Gallery, Fitness and Aquatic Centers, and Day Spa.
- A 30,000 sq. ft. Clubhouse, a hub of intergenerational engagement with its outdoor pool, Har-Tru tennis courts, vintage arcade, bowling alley, golf simulator, and gourmet restaurant.
- Twelve different culinary venues to satisfy every palate.
At Willow Valley Communities, residents also appreciate the financial predictability and security of our “Type A” Lifecare contract that promises long-term care, if needed in the future, without an increase to their monthly service fee. Willow Valley Communities is the only exclusively Lifecare community in Lancaster County.
