The 2.5-story building will be 196,000 square feet according to President and CEO Keith Frndak. “Our community will be located on one of the highest points in Allegheny County, so the views should be spectacular,” he said. The new community will be named Highpointe at Rebecca.
Construction will begin the last week of June to be completed and ready for move-in by August 2017. Architect R. W. Larson and Associates has designed a state-of-the-art life plan community for seniors age 68 or over. Each of the one, two and large two bedroom apartments will range in size from 840 square feet to 1500 square feet and feature open concept living, a balcony or patio and a laundry. In addition to an upscale transportation system, the expanded service package will include deli lunches, chef-prepared dinners, a state-of-the-art security system, free Wi-Fi and continental breakfasts. Common areas include a bistro lounge/deli with outdoor seating, circular drive around the building, restaurant style dining area with chef, library and computer center, beauty shop, wood shop, billiards room, pub, fitness center, guest room, several lounge areas and multi-purpose rooms and chapel.
“Concordia embraces aging in place and we believe this concept allows our residents to remain in their retirement living apartments two to three years longer,” said Frndak. “Already 25 individuals or couples have selected the apartment of their choice,” he noted.
