Beacon Hill at Eastgate has now moved into Phase 2 of their construction project.

This expansion includes 130,000 square feet for 56 independent living apartment homes, a Garden Café that will feature garden-to-table cuisine from the site’s half-acre garden, 10,000 additional square feet devoted to increasing the existing dining space, a Center for Arts and Worship designed for entertainment and faith-based programs and one that brings the Eastgate neighborhood into the senior community, and finally converting the Mary and Martha Health Care Center’s semi-private suites into private suites allowing guests to be treated in a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center.

Senior living communities and exceptional dining are rarely mentioned together, but at Beacon Hill it is a cornerstone of their philosophy and differentiates their community from others. A key area of the expansion will be the new dining and common areas, which will include 10,000 square feet devoted to enlarging the current dining room and adding a new dining venue called the Garden Café. It will seat close to 40 and will offer garden-fresh dishes from Beacon Hill’s award-winning executive chef, Timothy England, and his professional culinary team.

Of course, the expansion’s primary purpose is the 130,000 square feet for 56 independent living apartment homes, which will vary in size and amenities including one bedroom, two bedrooms, and a deluxe two-bedroom model.
