Project News: IMC Breaks Ground on Arbor Terrace, a New Senior Living Community in Exton, PA
IMC Construction, Capitol Seniors Housing, and Arbor Terrace Senior Living hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the new assisted living and memory care community in Exton, PA. The 78,000-square-foot community will have 86 apartments. Located at 100 Oaklands Blvd., Arbor Terrace Exton will be located near major medical facilities, restaurants, and shopping locations. The senior living community is scheduled to open in the winter of 2020.
Designed by the Meyer Senior Living Studio, Arbor Terrace Exton’s exterior draws inspiration from local structures and farmhouses, incorporating iconic elements such as stone, shutters, and welcoming open porches. The overall form of the building was influenced by the evolution of a farmhouse, with massing that represents additions being added over time to a beloved home. The interior design seeks to capture the unique features that create an inviting atmosphere often found in traditional farmhouses: built-in niches, reclaimed wood mantels, ceiling beams, and fireplaces. A neutral color palette paired classical detailing such as cased archways and a prominent barrel-vaulted lobby ceiling create a timeless aesthetic. Purposeful pops of color will be brought in through fabrics as well as whimsical artwork which will add a lively flair that will invigorate this community and its residents.
Amenities will include a grand lobby, bistro, clubroom, library with children’s nook, salon, theater, and a multi-purpose art room.
