Legend Senior Living® continues construction on its latest Pennsylvania community, Legend® of Allentown. The single-story residence will include 47 personal care units and 37 units dedicated to innovative memory care for seniors with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Wohlsen Construction, based in Lancaster, is the general contractor. Legend® of Allentown is set to open in June 2018. Special events, including a ribbon-cutting and media tours, will be scheduled soon. During construction, the community’s Welcome Center will be located at 5940 Hamilton Blvd.
The building site, 6043 Lower Macungie Road, is the former site of Lower Macungie Elementary School. Legend will include elements that honor the school’s history, including historic photos and a brick from the former school building that will be placed near the residence’s flagpole.
This will be the third Legend Senior Living® residence in Pennsylvania. In March, Legend® partnered with Signature Senior Living to own and manage two newly opened residences in Lititz and Lancaster.
