The new 3-storey addition houses 37 residential units to add to the 92 units in the primary building. The first floor features and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for independent seniors, while the third floor offers a choice of all-inclusive studios and suites. The second floor will offer private and semi-private assisted-living rooms.

“We have expanded 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 West Wing is connected to the existing Riverdale Terrace by way of a sky-walk. The $8.8 million new development, which includes underground parking, took several months to complete.

“We encourage people to book an appointment for a guided tour,” says Tracy Jones, Executive Director of Riverdale Terrace. “We’re really excited at the lifestyle options we have created for our residents.”

Riverdale Terrace received support from the City of Cornwall via the Brownfield Community Improvement Program.
