Bell Pavilion will feature nine never-before-seen layouts that all boast granite counter tops, upgraded flooring and open floor plans.These stunning new homes include special features like expanded kitchens, heightened ceilings, screened-in balconies, and large laundry rooms. The homes offered range in size from one bedroom, one bedroom with a den, to two bedrooms, or two bedrooms with a den.


The new building will add a brand new restaurant, fitness center, two bocce courts, courtyard with fireplaces, and the popular amenity of resident community gardens to campus. A climate-controlled walkway will connect Bell Pavilion to Union Square where multiple dining venues, an all-season pool and fitness center, medical center, art studio, library, theater, and salon are located. The community also has secure underground parking and concierge services. In addition to independent senior living, Lantern Hill offers assisted living, sub-acute rehabilitation, nursing care, and memory care in its continuing care neighborhood located on campus.


At the event, guests enjoyed refreshments, mingled with residents, viewed the layouts of the new building and an aerial video of campus, and met with members of Lantern Hill's staff. Personal Moving Consultant Jennifer Kohan offered information about Erickson Realty and Moving Services, a complimentary program for people moving to an Erickson Living community that coordinates all the details of your move.

"We can't wait to welcome new residents to the Lantern Hill family next year," said Executive Director Patricia Swan-Jacobs.
