Presbyterian Senior Living broke ground on a $10 million expansion project at Windy Hill Village, a retirement community in Centre County, Pa. According to the Central Penn Business Journal, R.S. Mowery & Sons Inc. is the constructor of the four-story building. The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency approved $7.7 million in tax credits to support the project.
Located at 225 Dogwood Drive, just off Route 322, Westminster Place at Windy Hill Village will include 37 one- and 11 two-bedroom units. Eight of the 48 units will be market-rate apartments and the remainder will be tax-credit rentals with income limits applied to applicants. The four-story building will be one of less than 50 buildings in the U.S. to incorporate the so-called passive house design, which means reduced energy consumption and energy-efficient equipment. The existing community currently serves 179 seniors, age 55 and over, in residential living, personal care, memory support, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, as well as affordable housing options.
Westminster Place at Windy Hill Village is expected to be completed by the middle of 2018.
