Ivy Creek retirement opens in Concord

The Ivy Creek retirement community officially opened on Sunday. The official name, Ivy Creek Gracious Retirement Living boasts 142 rental rooms with 45 already leased and 70 more secured by a deposit.

Concord Township Council Vice President John Gillespie reads a proclamation during the opening dedication of Ivy Mills.

Ivy Creek’s parent company is Hawthorn Senior Living, from Vancouver, Wash. Director of Operations Bob McConnell said the company chose Concord Township because it’s a great location for seniors with nearby shopping and medical facilities. In addition to the 142 rental units — from studios to two-bedroom apartments ranging in price from $2,495 to $4,800 per month — there is also a mini theater, three chef-prepared meals per day, housekeeping and laundry services.

On hand for the opening were Dominic Pileggi and John Gillespie, president and vice president of Concord Township Council. Gillespie read a proclamation naming Sunday, April 28, 2019, as Senior Citizen Day.

Ivy Creek is on Franklin Drive behind the Shops at Brinton Lake. For information, phone 610-981-2740.
