Mennonite Village blessed the building site Thursday for its newest
neighborhood. The not‐for‐profit Continuing Care Retirement Community will add 45 Active Living residences to its 159‐acre campus in Albany.
Mennonite Village anticipates completion of the first five homes in March 2009. The remaining 40 homes will be built progressively through 2011. When complete, the Active Living portion of the community will offer 288 homes and 48 apartments to persons 55 years of age and greater.
“This new housing development is in response to the many folks who have been waiting to move to our campus,” said Mennonite Village President/CEO, Ron Litwiller. “We appreciate this opportunity to serve more of our area’s seniors, and we’re grateful to have the continued support of the surrounding communities.”
The building site for the neighborhood fronts Oak Creek and features views of Marys Peak, the Cascades, wooded oak groves, meadows, and acres of open space. The campus offers hiking trails, fitness facilities, expansive gardens, and RV parking, among other amenities geared toward today’s more active retirement population.
“Residents of these Village residences will enjoy the freedom of independent living and the security of a continuum of care,” adds Bob Johnson, Vice President Operations. “Mennonite Village offers them not only the comforts of home, but a healthy and caring approach to living.”
Residents can choose from five new, innovative floor plans ranging in size from 1,500 to 1,900 square feet with two or three bedrooms, two baths, and a den or sunroom. Standard home amenities include vaulted ceilings,
white oak or alder cabinetry, solar natural light tubes, Milgard® energy efficient windows, central heating and air, a fully-equipped kitchen, a spacious walk‐in closet, covered patio and porch, and a single‐ or double‐car garage with room for a workshop. Life lease entrance fees range from $240,000 to $305,000 with a minor monthly service fee.
The public can now apply and make reservations for new two‐ or three‐bedroom homes at Mennonite Village. For information and a personal tour, interested parties can call (541) 928‐7232 to speak with a marketing representative.
