Ephrata, PA, September 10, 2013
Hollenbach Construction, Inc. has started construction work on the recently approved Keystone Villa at Ephrata senior living community which is being built on the site of the former Artworks at Doneckers. Demolition of existing buildings is underway, as is selective demolition within the 4-story brick building that once was the home of the Eby Shoe Company but will now be adaptively reused for senior living apartments.
Glenn Ebersole, Business Development and Marketing, said, “We have worked very closely with the Borough’s elected and appointed officials and staff for more than 20 months and are very pleased to see the actual start of construction of this significant project in downtown Ephrata.” The $12 million construction project is expected to take 13 months.
Keystone Villa at Ephrata will be home to about 160 new residents. The four story residence will consist of 139 apartments: 78 Independent Living; 43 Personal Care and 18 Memory Care. The project is approximately 150,000 square feet and includes the adaptive reuse of the existing 4-story building – about 35,000 square feet – and 115,000 square feet of new construction. Hollenbach Construction is the Leader of the Design/Build Team with Muhlenberg Greene as the Architect and McCarthy Engineering as the Civil Engineering firm.
Tim Little, President, said, “The Keystone Villa at Ephrata project continues a very positive long term successful relationship between Keystone Villa and Hollenbach Construction, Inc. This is the 6th and the largest senior living construction project we have worked on with them.”
