Cornwall Ontario – One of Eastern Ontario’s most popular retirement destinations will soon offer more lifestyle options.

Riverdale Terrace - Cornwall

Construction has begun on a major expansion of Riverdale Terrace, a retirement residence complex that overlooks the St. Lawrence River in Cornwall’s west end.

“We are expanding to better serve the needs of seniors in our community,” says JC Godard, who owns Riverdale Terrace with his wife Suzi. “When seniors are ready to leave the responsibility and hassle of owning a home they can move in to Riverdale Terrace with the comfort of knowing they are in a secure facility where services are tailored to their needs.”

The project entails a new 3-storey addition that will house 37 residential units. The first floor will feature and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for independent seniors, while the third floor will offer a choice of all-inclusive studios and suites. The second floor will offer private and semi-private assisted-living rooms.

“We strive to provide the best quality of life we can for our residents,” notes Mr. Godard. “This is their time to sit back and enjoy their lives which we can make happen now by offering these three levels of services.”

The new building will be connected to the existing Riverdale Terrace by way of a sky-walk. The new phase will also include underground parking. The $8.8 million new development is expected to take eight months to complete.

“We encourage people to book an appointment for a guided tour,” says Mr. Godard. “We’re really excited at the lifestyle options we have created for our residents.”
