WASHINGTON, D.C. and EXTON, Pa. (December 12, 2019) – Capitol Seniors Housing, a leading senior living investment and development firm, has started construction on Arbor Terrace Exton, an assisted living and memory care community in Exton, PA., near Philadelphia. 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.

“We’re very excited to break ground on another development with The Arbor Company that will bring a best in class senior living community to the township,” said Scott Stewart, Managing Partner of Capitol Seniors Housing. “Exton is a family-oriented, close-knit community, with top-rated schools, fabulous restaurants and retail. Arbor Terrace Exton will fit perfectly in the Exton community and enable residents and their loved ones to receive the care they need while remaining in the community they love.”

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.

“We’re very appreciative to community leaders and residents for their support,” said Joe McElwee, Principal – Development, Capitol Seniors Housing. “Exton is a wonderful township, and we’re confident that Arbor Terrace Exton will become a valued asset to the community.”
