LCB Completes Residence at Bala Cynwyd Adaptive Reuse Project in Pennsylvania

by Jeff Shaw

BALA CYNWYD, Penn. — LCB Senior Living has opened The Residence at Bala Cynwyd, a seniors housing community built on the former site of Lee’s Shoddy Mill in Bala Cynwyd, a suburb of Philadelphia.

Built in the 1850s as Benjamin Schofield’s West Manayunk Woolen Mills, the site eventually became known as Lee’s Shoddy Mill, named after the heavy fabric created from recycled wool and cotton. Just steps away from the Cynwyd Heritage Trail, this new community is reflective of Bala Cynwyd’s history and pays homage to that history through its design.

The Residence at Bala Cynwyd offers independent living, personal care and memory care accommodations. Units are available in studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floorplans.

Adam Rice is the community’s executive director.
