WAYNE, Pa. — CA Senior Living LLC, the senior housing investment and development division of Chicago-based CA Ventures, has started construction of Anthology of King of Prussia, a 192-unit senior living community in Wayne, approximately 17 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
The 11-story development is scheduled for completion in late 2020.
The project is located within The Village at Valley Forge, a 122-acre mixed-use lifestyle village. When complete, The Village at Valley Forge will include up to 2,500 residential units, 500,000 square feet of retail space, two hotels and 1 million square feet of mid-rise office and healthcare space. The community is located a quarter-mile from the King of Prussia Mall, the largest mall on the East Coast, and offers easy access to four major highways.
“We are proud to be the first company to bring senior living to The Village at Valley Forge,” says Ben Burke, president of CA Senior Living. “The community’s location within a dynamic mixed-use development means residents can have everything they need and want within walking distance, from specialty dining and entertainment destinations to medical offices.”
Designed by the Chicago office of New York-based Perkins Eastman, Anthology of King of Prussia will offer a total of 97 independent living, 63 assisted living and 32 memory care residences. The independent and assisted living apartments range from 410-square-foot studios to 1,200-square-foot two-bedroom/two-bath units.
“The senior housing market in the greater Philadelphia area is very strong, with occupancy rates higher than the national average,” says Burke.
CA Senior Living’s recently launched operational arm, Anthology Senior Living, will manage the community. Lancaster-based Wohlsen Construction Co. is serving as general contractor.
