Open House Planned This Spring at Luther Acres’ Renovated Muhlenberg Apartment Building

Luthercare is excited to share the completion of the extensive renovation project at the Luther Acres Muhlenberg Apartment Building with the greater community!

On Thursday, April 6, from 3 to 6 p.m., Luther Acres, the Luthercare community at 600 E. Main Street in Lititz, invites the public to a special Afternoon Celebration & Open House. Guests will have the opportunity to tour the newly renovated 120-residence apartment building, which also includes 70 personal care residences, and all of the new spaces.

The makeover includes a new restaurant, The Round, which features waited table service, booth or table seating, a salad bar and a brick oven, and the addition of Coffee & Cork, a coffee bar offering breakfast sandwiches and specialty hot beverages. Coffee & Cork is awaiting the confirmation of a Pennsylvania state liquor license to provide residents with the opportunity to enjoy a drink before dinner.

The space also includes a new library, salon and spectacular lobby area featuring floorto- ceiling windows to let in plenty of natural light, as well as a unique bubble wall.

The bubble wall, the only one of its kind within a 100-mile radius, creates mesmerizing patterns when air bubbles released inside the wall are illuminated by color-changing LED lights. The lobby and adjacent library serve as a gathering place for residents, families and friends.

The renovations also include the hallways and lounge spaces in independent living and personal care, along with the creation of Community Kitchens for allday dining for personal care residents. The Community Kitchens feature table seating or diner-style counter seating and enable Dining Services team members to create fresh meals as the residents watch, wait and take in the aromas.

“Changes to the space have transformed the experience for our residents,” says Sally Groome, Vice President – Marketing & Communications. “In addition, we are receiving tremendous feedback from prospective residents who are enjoying the opportunity to dine at The Round and imagine the day when they will share the space with their friends and families.”

The two-year project began in 2015 and wrapped up with the final phase, an exterior facelift to the Muhlenberg Apartment Building. This was the first major renovation to the building since it opened in 2000.

Members of the greater community are invited to stop by the Open House and enjoy the new spaces. Visitors are welcome to tour spacious one- or two-bedroom apartments, sample foods from The Round, visit the remodeled personal care and see all that Luther Acres has to offer.
