Greet the New Renaissance at Pine Run!
April, 2018


All of life is an art. Why not live yours in the galleries emerging now in the NEW HUB at Pine Run? Scheduled to open in late June, the construction for Phase 1 of the 36,000 SF project continues to be on pace, and the milestones completed to date, such as the dramatic porte cochere, serve to heighten anticipation throughout the community.

Beginning with the vaulted entry and handsome stone fireplace, the elements of design, construction, and lighting create a balanced synergy of tradition along with a new sense of liveliness.

Beyond the beauty of the intimate living room and open passages, Pine Run Villagers will be drawn to move through a series of themed dining galleries and take in the panoramic views of Pine Run’s campus. Sure to be popular is The Grill & Pub featuring healthy options along with upscale sandwiches and action stations serving carved meats, pasta, burgers, pizza, and other zesty fare. This exciting venue is positioned in close proximity to the outdoor deck overlooking the pond.

The interactive scene on the main level, quite generous in scale, means billiards, book discussions, classes, and conversations over cocktails will all be within easy reach. Amenities such as the beauty salon and country store are also accessible here.

The architects, AG Architecture of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, have successfully infused the space with the warmth of a Bucks County welcome enriched by many months of planning and spirited interaction with our Villagers, Associates, and Gorski Engineering. Established in 1992, AG Architecture’s widely respected team has been commissioned to design and build senior living communities across the nation.

Generations of residents have always turned to Pine Run for the certainty of comforts and services. We hope you agree that life remains inspiring where you really can find it all – at Pine Run Continuing Care Retirement Community, one of the many stars of Doylestown Health!
