Wichita Presbyterian Manor recently began the final phase of a two-phase, $35 million campus transformation project. Expected to be complete this November, The Westerly Residences will feature 90 brand-new independent living residences in a variety of floor plan options, with amenities including multiple dining venues and an array of social, cultural, educational, and spiritual programs and activities.
Greystone is providing financing, development and marketing support for this final phase of the project. Greystone provided financing and development support for Phase I of the redevelopment.
The Westerly Residences will be a part of the Wichita Presbyterian Manor community, giving all residents access to on-site health care.
The Westerly Residences has already pre-sold more than 75 residences. Throughout the next few months, future residents will begin personalizing their homes and building relationships with their soon-to-be neighbors during regular social events. While many seniors who will soon call The Westerly Residences home currently live in the Wichita area, the community has also attracted older adults from out-of-state and elsewhere in Kansas.
The Westerly Residences’ construction partners are general contractor Paric, based out of St. Louis, Mo., and MKEC Engineering Consultants, based in Wichita, Kan..
The first phase of construction at Wichita Presbyterian Manor began in February 2014 and includes 48 modern assisted living apartments, 24 assisted living memory care suites, 50 skilled nursing suites, a PATH® (Post-Acute to Home) rehabilitation wing, and new health care common spaces, including a main kitchen.
The Westerly Residences and Wichita Presbyterian Manor are part of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, Inc., a not-for-profit, faith-based organization comprised of 18 affiliated senior living communities in Kansas and Missouri. PMMA has been serving seniors since 1949, and today serves more than 2,500 residents.
