DAYVILLE — After 20 years of planning and the last 18 months of construction, Country Living at Westview Commons, a new 75 unit independent and assisted living facility on Ware Road, opened its doors Sept. 14.
To celebrate the opening, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the facility with local town officials and members of the Northeast Connecticut Chamber of Commerce.
The $19,500,000 project touts a 115,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art two story building including a lower level indoor parking garage, a large two-story great room for dining and entertainment, café.
There is also an Irish pub, movie theater, family gathering center, library, outdoor gazebo with walking trails, gardens and a large exterior water feature at the entrance.
“We greatly appreciate all of the support we have received for this significant investment in our community,” said David T. Panteleakos, executive vice president and one of the owners of Westview Commons.
“Dating back to 1999, we began the quest for establishing this type of housing and services for the retired citizens in our region.
"Through the years, we have been so impressed by our local town officials for their assistance with navigating and guidance in establishing such a significant property in our local area.
"Also, working with Provost & Rovero, Inc. and Engineered Construction International, Inc. out of Plainfield, for our architectural/engineering designs and construction management services made all the difference for us. Their expertise and coordination with local contractors was perfectly executed; and they delivered the building ahead of schedule.
"Additionally, working with Michael Alberts, vice president and senior commercial loan officer at Jewett City Savings Bank for the financing of this significant investment in our local area could not have been any smoother.
"Lastly, we are truly grateful to our neighbors for being so patient with the many disruptions and inconveniences that go along with a construction project of this magnitude.”
Residents officially began moving into Westview Commons Sept. 14. For more info: or call (860) 428-2230.
