Plantation Village – Wilmington's Retirement Living Leader for 25 Years – Announces Expansion and Renovation Plans


Community adding 27 residences, new amenities and enhanced common areas, as demand increases for active senior living with the security of a health care plan; Groundbreaking Celebration Planned for Mid-Summer 2013

WILMINGTON, North Carolina (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

Plantation Village, Wilmington's pioneer in the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) concept, is expanding its community to meet growing demands for active senior living. The 68,825-square-foot expansion includes a 27-unit apartment building, new dining venues, a 350-seat auditorium and a new Wellness Center with a 20-meter lap & therapy pool and beauty/barber salon, among other amenities.

In addition to the expansion, Plantation Village will remodel approximately 22,000 square feet of common areas, including a larger library with computer stations and an expanded living room to accommodate the community's thriving social scene.

“We're continuing to grow a community where active seniors can live a maintenance-free life to its fullest in every way,” explains Greg Woodward, Executive Director at Plantation Village. “This is a busy, vibrant neighborhood of people who enjoy social gatherings, fitness, fine dining and classes of all kinds – from painting to learning new languages to woodworking and much more. We refer to our residents as 'active seniors,' and I would say it's a bit of an understatement for many of them!”

Located on 56 beautifully landscaped acres just 15 minutes from downtown Wilmington and the beach, Plantation Village stands alone as a retirement community that offers an active lifestyle along with guaranteed access to all levels of health care. Residents can choose from a range of living options, including cul-de-sac neighborhoods, newly renovated apartment homes, villas and duplexes with a variety of floor plans for independent living, while having access to assisted or in-home care services if needed.

Construction on the expansion is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2013. New residences will range from 917 square feet for a one-bedroom to 1,491 square feet for a two-bedroom home. Residences are designed to ensure plenty of natural light –with large windows (some with water views), as well as spacious closets and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms.

Amenities added or enhanced with the expansion:

  • New dining venues
  • New Wellness Center with expanded fitness rooms, a lap therapy pool and a beauty/barber salon
  • New auditorium to seat 350 people
  • Redesigned Resident Care Center
  • Expanded library with computer access

The architect on Plantation Village's expansion project is SFCS, headquartered in Charlotte, NC. SFCS is one of the leading architectural, engineering and interior design firms in the country that specializes in designing for seniors.

Continuing Care
Plantation Village is Wilmington's pioneer in the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) concept. Residents are able to transition to and from independent living to assisted or in-home care services – or even skilled care from a nurse temporarily (after surgery) or long term.

Continuing care: a complete package of all-inclusive amenities and services:

  • Guaranteed access to 5-star rated Davis Health Care Center and Champions Assisted Living, complete with a memory care unit.
  • 30 days of temporary care every year at no added cost, starting from day one.
  • 25% discount on future health care.
  • Tax deductions – due to Plantation Village's non-profit status, a portion of entrance fee and monthly fees are tax-deductible.

This kind of security makes Plantation Village a popular choice among seniors who don't want to worry about unpredictable costs or unplanned moves. Whether they strain a shoulder on the golf course or need long-term assistance, they have access to the very best care at Plantation Village.
