Capitol Seniors Housing, a Washington, D.C.-based real estate developer, has finalized the development of a new $22.5 million senior living facility, Arbor Terrace in Exton, writes Natalie Kostelni for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

This latest addition furthers the gradual transformation of Oaklands Corporate Center from a 1980s office park into a mixed-use community.

The facility was designed by Ardmore-based Meyer Design. Since the building was under construction during the pandemic, the designer was also able to incorporate new health and safety measures into the blueprints, as well as implement some future precautionary features.

Some of the alterations included antimicrobial surfaces, flexible furniture and touchless doors, and outdoor access on all floors.

Aesthetically, these changes have not compromised the hospitality aspect of the facility or the architectural features inspired by its Chester County location. Arbor Terrace boasts farmhouse sinks, rolling countryside images, and faux ruins, along with a fire pit and many other homey details.

“We want residents to feel they belong here and relate to it,” said Shannon Remaley, a principal at Meyer and its senior living practice leader. “At the end of the day, this is their home.”
