With The Vistas at Providence Park, Willow Valley introduces  its most unique apartment residence to date

When it comes to senior living, Willow Valley Communities has developed a simple recipe for success:
“We build for people, not just seniors,” says John G. Swanson, president of Willow Valley Living, the development and management company for Willow Valley.
“We look at what’s been successful and we use what we know to anticipate what might be desired in the future. We seek inspiration everywhere,” Swanson continues, “and then we think about how we can take it to the next level and apply that to our communities.”
With that formula in mind, Willow Valley is introducing The Vistas at Providence Park, its most unique apartment residence offering to date.
The five-story complex on Willow Valley’s Manor Campus will include 52 luxury apartments in four floor plans, ranging in size from 1,720 to 1,991 square feet.
Construction is expected to begin in mid-2016, with move-ins anticipated in mid- to late 2017.
Upscale features include finely crafted finishes, top-of-the-line appliances, granite countertops, spa-style master baths and room-like balconies
As the name suggests, the new apartments will also offer beautiful views from their hilltop location – the downtown Lancaster skyline on one side and the picturesque Willow Valley campus and surrounding farmland on the other. And each apartment will include floor-to-ceiling windows to thoroughly capture the surrounding vistas.
Other amenities at The Vistas include an underground parking garage, exercise room, library, community meeting rooms and a catering kitchen for residents to use for private parties. The third-floor lobby and other common areas will also offer spectacular views.
Residents of The Vistas will also enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast, and concierge service.
Vistas residents will work with a Design Consultant through Willow Valley’s extensive design center to customize their living spaces.
The Vistas embody Willow Valley’s mantra, “Live life forward,” says Kim Daly Nobbs, Chief Marketing Officer, catering to those who look at senior living not as an end, but as a beginning.
“We believe in creating possibilities,” says Nobbs. “We know from experience that age itself does not have to be a limiting experience.”
And for residents of Willow Valley Communities, the possibilities are endless, in amenities and activities and in the size and style of living space.
Between its two campuses, the community offers 11 dining venues featuring locally sourced ingredients; an 80,000-square-foot Cultural Center with fitness and aquatic centers, day spa, art gallery and 500-seat theater; and the new 30,000-square-foot Clubhouse, featuring a bowling alley, vintage arcade, outdoor pool and tennis courts. The Clubhouse features Willow Valley Communities’ newest dining experience at Local Table, with its farm-fresh, innovative offerings.
There are also more than 100 clubs, craft and art studios, woodworking shops, gardening plots, stocked fishing ponds and model railroad platforms for those who want to follow their passions or find new ones.
“We see people who finally have time do to the things they want to do,” Nobbs says. A key component of the program at Willow Valley Communities is Lifecare, which entitles residents to the care they may need without a change in their monthly fee.
Entrance fees for The Vistas at Providence Park start at $370,000, with an additional $21,000 for a second person and an additional $18,000 for top-floor apartments. Monthly fees start at $3,280. A portion of both the entrance and monthly fees qualifies as a medical expense tax deduction because it is considered an investment in long-term care as part of Willow Valley’s Lifecare program.
“It allows people to have an exceptional life now, while planning for the future,” Swanson says.
Those who may be interested in The Vistas at Providence Park are encouraged to contact Willow Valley soon-more than 55 people are on the Priority Program, and reservations are now being taken. Occupancy is open to those 55 and older.
On Oct. 17, Willow Valley will participate in a county-wide open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-770-5445 or email TheVistas@willowvalley.org.
