Apartment Entrance Renovation Update

Construction began this week on our apartment entrance (main lounge).  For the next 13 weeks, this area will be closed so we can make some exciting changes.  Once the refresh is complete, the apartment entrance will have a new look and offer many new ways for residents to connect with their neighbors and guests.

  • Reception desk
  • Resident mailboxes
  • Game room with pool table and more
  • Coffee bar
  • Television
  • 2-sided fireplace
  • Floor-to-ceiling windows
  • Digital event calendar
  • Enhanced kitchen area for social events and food service

While construction is underway, residents and guests can use the main entrance, library entrance, or door 1 (green room) to access the building.

Site Work Has Begun!

Big things are happening at Cedar Crest.  JP Cullen has started the site work for our new apartment and assisted living expansion that will be ready in 2023.  We will be giving regular updates as progress continues.  We are starting meet to with Pioneers (priority depositors) about selecting their preferred apartment.  Upon selecting their next home, they will sign a contract and pay the initial 10% deposit of the entrance fee.  After the Pioneers have made their decision, any remaining apartments will be made available to our wait list and then the general public.  Want to find out more?  Contact us for more information.

Expansion Update 11/16/2021

Refining the scope of our expansion plans.

At the onset of our expansion campaign, we were planning on expanding 4 areas of our campus: Cottages, Apartments, Assisted Living, and Villas.  Taking on a building project of this scale in the midst of a global pandemic has presented a unique set of circumstances for our leadership team.  At this time the board has decided to move the project forward without the Villas.  All of the participants in the pioneer program for Villas have been contacted, and many have decided to pivot to our Apartments or Cottages.

Here is the latest update on our campus expansion:
1) Cottages: We continue to build new single-story ranch homes on the southern end of our campus.  Four are currently under construction and pricing and floorplans for the next two will be available early December.
2) Timeline for Apartments and Assisted Living:  Site work is scheduled to begin spring 2022.  At this point we are projecting that both will be ready for occupancy in late 2023.
3) Apartments:  Changing the scope of the project impacts the cost basis of the expansion, and we want to make sure that the entrance fees and monthly fees reflect the actual costs of the work.  As soon as we have determined this, we will begin to contact pioneers about selecting an apartment and making the initial 10% deposit.
4) Assisted Living & Memory Care: More information will be available in the coming year.  We recognize that at this point we have more demand than supply in this area and the expansion will help us address this need.

September 2021 Expansion Update

When can I pick out my new Apartment/Villa?

Earlier this week, our leadership met all day with our architects and construction partners to review bids and refine what our actual costs will be.  In the coming weeks, participants in the Pioneer Program will have the exclusive opportunity to select their homes in the priority that they joined the Program.  After the Pioneers have had their opportunity to select their homes, any remaining homes will be available for the general public.  We are optimistic that we may be able to start sitework this fall on the apartments.

Our list of Pioneers has grown to 31 as more people decide to make Cedar Crest their future home.  It’s not too late to join our Pioneer Program and secure your priority opportunity to select your new Villa/Apartment.  All it takes is a $1,000 refundable commitment and an approved application (no application fees).  CLICK HERE to find out more.
