Wesley Enhanced Living is expanding


Wesley Enhanced Living (WEL) will devote $10 million to renovate, refresh and update its WEL Doylestown and WEL Upper Moreland communities, serving seniors in Bucks and Montgomery counties.

“This investment will modernize amenities at our Bucks County and Montgomery County communities. With this investment being completely resident-focused, we’re updating furniture in lobby and lounge settings, adding on-site restaurants, recreational areas and so much more,” explained President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Petty. “With these up-to-date offerings, we are confident we will better serve, support and accommodate our residents – providing top-notch service while enhancing their quality of life.”

Slated to begin in late September, construction at Doylestown is expected to be completed in March. The 22,100-square-foot community currently includes 216 apartments. The estimated six-month project at Doylestown will include the following renovations:

- addition of an upscale restaurant, providing an outdoor eating option;

- new indoor main street Bistro and Pub food lounge;

- brand new lobby and refreshed Welcome Center to better accommodate residents and guests;

- expanded and renovated auditorium area for resident recreation;

- completely renovated lounges and community spaces, featuring new furnishings; and

- spacious apartment homes with choice of finishes.

Currently underway, comparable renovations at Upper Moreland are expected to be completed by year’s end. The Montgomery County senior living community includes a combined total of 200 apartments and cottages in a total of 184,000 square feet. Construction at Upper Moreland includes development of a movie theater, featuring comfortable seating and wide-screen projection, as well as a fireplace lounge for resident use and creation of a TV lounge.
