Presbyterian Senior Living (PSL) and Springwood Real Estate Services recently held a ground breaking ceremony for Westminster Place at Stewartstown. Westminster Place at Stewartstown is a $16.2 million dollar, 96-apartment affordable housing community that will offer 71 one bedroom and 25 two bedroom apartments to seniors 55 and over. The project was designed by Murphy and Dittenhafer and Hogg Construction served as the general contractor for the project. Support for the project came from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, Fulton Bank, the Pittsburgh Federal Home Loan Bank Affordable Housing Program Grant, the York County Planning Commission, and federal stimulus funds provided through the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency. The development, a new collaboration between Presbyterian Senior Living and Springwood Real Estate Services, will re-use the 100-year-old, 3-story Hopewell Furniture Factory building as its focal point, adding two new 3-story wings to create a total building of 111,660 square feet and is expected to be completed by November of 2010.
According to Stephen Proctor, CEO of Presbyterian Senior Living, “Presbyterian Senior Living is pleased to work with Springwood Real Estate Services to bring this much needed project to the Stewartstown area. Westminster Place will be a caring community, where people with limited incomes can live in safety and security.”
