LifeSpire of Virginia begins construction of 125,000-square-foot expansion
LifeSpire of Virginia has begun construction on a 125,000-square-foot expansion of its Culpeper senior-living community.
The project, financed in part with an $18 million loan from SunTrust Bank, will allow LifeSpire to build 133 apartments at The Culpeper and offer additional care services.
The new facilities will replace a building constructed in 1951. The 133 new apartments include 54 assisted-living, 32 memory-care and 47 skilled-nursing units, with 16 of those units reserved for short-term rehabilitation needs.
Other enhancements to the community will include an outdoor courtyard, country kitchens, cook-to-order dining options, an on-site clinic, chapel, on-site physical therapy, wellness gym, health and beauty spa and other home-like living spaces.
LifeSpire of Virginia operates four continuing care retirement communities in Virginia: The Chesapeake in Newport News, The Culpeper in Culpeper, The Glebe in Daleville and Lakewood in Richmond.
