Anyone who has driven by the Porter’s Neck area recently is certain to have noticed the ongoing construction at Plantation Village, Wilmington’s first and only not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community. The new apartment homes at Plantation Place are now complete and residents have begun moving in. The construction has been due to the community’s expansion project, which includes a new auditorium, a wellness center with a saltwater pool, and a new bar and bistro. All are to be completed by summer 2015.
The new fitness and wellness center is set for completion in March 2015. It will offer a variety of workout machines as well as ample room for classes – from Zumba to tai chi to yoga – so that residents can enjoy one another’s company and appreciate the sense of community that comes from exercising in a group. There will even be a dedicated wellness coordinator on-site to assist residents with customized fitness programs.
The new auditorium is also slated to receive its finishing touches in March 2015. Designed to comfortably accommodate up to 375 people, the new auditorium will host nationally recognized musical acts and speakers, live bands emulating the residents’ favorite artists, and a variety of fun activities, all aimed at sparking conversation, friendship and laughter.
Certain to be a social hub for all residents is the new bistro and bar at Plantation Village. When it is finished in July of this year, the bistro and bar will offer a lively venue for resident happy hours and get-togethers with its offerings of beer, wine and cocktails. Residents can also enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, made-to-order sandwiches and wraps, soups, salads and more.
The expansion project is just a small part of the benefits and amenities that are provided for the residents of Plantation Village. With a successful track record spanning more than 26 years, Plantation Village has consistently reinvested its earnings into refining the services, programs and amenities it provides for residents.
