Wisteria Place Newsletter September

September 14th, 2020

Welcome!

From Community Relations Manager Maureen Fakaro

Hey everyone,

We do hope you are enjoying the last days of summer!

At Wisteria Place, the days have passed quickly and the construction continues to go smoothly.

We have had great coffee chats and our community continues to grow, which is so exciting! The last chat featured two local fitness experts Lynn Walters and Darby Kwan. Both of them will be offering fitness opportunities coming up in the park or on Zoom. In the next coffee chat, September 17th at 10 am, we will reveal dates and fitness resources for seniors. We will also have two more speakers who can share different fitness options and tips. We hope you can join us for this conversation!

The moment many have been waiting for is the revealing of our floor plans and rates. The floor plans are in the final stages of design, and the rates will be available before the end of this month. We will send these out to all who have expressed interest, and we can’t wait to see who will be in our community in the new year. Be sure to get on our Interest List if you aren’t already. We will be contacting people in October for suite selection!


The Development

Construction is going smoothly! Wisteria Place will open in early 2021.
