The Highlands of Wyomissing will be celebrating the conclusion of a $12 million renovation and expansion project that was undertaken to mark the community's 25th anniversary.
“It was time for an update to prepare for that next generation of seniors,” said Jodi Gibble, director of marketing.
She said the next generation of residents is looking for more activities and choices.
The key enhancements to the facility included a new cultural center to accommodate large programs and group events. This space is divisible for smaller group events and programs. It also will be used for worship space.
The library expanded to include additional space for books, comfortable seating for reading and computers for research.
The expansion was conducted by Wholsen Construction of Lancaster. The design concept included the addition of a one-story structure to the front of the main building, an expansion to support service functions, infrastructure improvements and a significant update and remodel of the existing core of the building with added and expanded services and amenities, including additional parking.
The Highlands will hold an open house Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. to show off the addition.
