Covenant Village of Cromwell to Celebrate Expansion with Groundbreaking Ceremony
CROMWELL, CT–Covenant Village of Cromwell, a faith-based not-for-profit senior living community owned and operated by Covenant Retirement Communities (CRC), will be celebrating the expansion of its Cromwell community with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for Thursday, February 21.
To help mark the occasion, CRC President and CEO Terri Cunliffe will be joined by Cromwell Mayor Enzo Faienza and Cromwell Town Manager Anthony J. Salvatore for the ceremony. Others in attendance will include Covenant Village residents, as well as future residents of the expansion.
“This will be an exciting day in the history of Covenant Village of Cromwell which dates back to 1964 when the very first residents moved in,” said Cunliffe. “The expansion represents our long-standing commitment to serving older adults in the Cromwell area by providing quality housing and amenities to create a better way of life.”
The $48-million expansion at Covenant Village of Cromwell, which has received overwhelming support from the Town of Cromwell leaders, includes 54 new one-and two-bedroom apartment homes and a new Town Center with three dining venues, lobbies, a game room, an art studio, a wellness center, and event center. To date, 87-percent of the new apartment home have been sold.
“We conducted a great deal of research and talked with many prospective residents about our plans for the expansion to ensure our project included what they’re looking for when it comes to retirement living,” noted Cunliffe. “The end result of our plans is the product of their feedback which will carry us well into the future.”
The development team for the expansion includes C.E. Floyd Company out of Middletown, CT; THW Design from Atlanta, GA; Milone & Macbroom from Cheshire, CT; JFW, Inc., Gaithersburg, MD; and Dowley and Associates, Middletown, CT. Construction is scheduled to begin in March with an anticipated completion in the fall of 2020.
Covenant Retirement Communities is the nation’s fifth largest not-for-profit senior services provider, serving over 5,000 residents at 16 retirement communities nationwide and is a ministry of the Evangelical Covenant Church.
