The public can get a peek at the newly constructed The Meadows at Glenwyck independent living community during an open house Friday and Saturday.
The $20 million project, which features 110 apartments for residents ages 55 and older, sits on nine acres of land on Dutch Meadows Lane down the road from Wal-Mart.
Although construction work is not entirely finished on the three-story complex, tenants began moving in June 2. Already, about 30 apartments are occupied.

The Meadows at Glenwyck, 150 Dutch Meadows Lane, Glenville, will hold an open house from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. On display will be one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as the facility’s common areas. For more information, call 380-1988 or visit www.meadowsatglenwyck.com.
Residents’ ages range from the mid-60s to 80s, according to Scott Bryant, senior living consultant for the complex. The complex was built and is managed by Summit Senior Living LLC.
Tuesday morning, several tenants were enjoying coffee and cinnamon rolls at a wooden table in the complex’s tavern, the smell of fresh paint and new carpeting in the air. A long wooden bar is positioned along one wall in the tavern, but there won’t be a bartender since the facility doesn’t have a liquor license, said Bryant. Instead, residents can stow their alcoholic beverages in one of the tavern’s 60 liquor lockers.
“I think the tavern was really designed to get folks together socially, so they can come in, and if they want to do their own happy hour on a Thursday or Friday night, they can do it,” Bryant said.
Down the hall from the tavern is a bright community room with a fireplace, breakfast bar and grand piano. A patio that will include a firepit is accessible from there.
Workers were busy Tuesday constructing the indoor heated pool, situated in an airy room with a cathedral ceiling. Multiple sets of sliding doors open to a patio where outdoor furniture will soon sit. The pool room also has a hot tub and cedar-lined sauna.
The complex has a workout room with six exercise machines. Next door is a space where fitness classes will be held.
A salon, still under construction, will offer manicures, pedicures, massages and hairstyling.
An in-house movie theater will show feature films on a 120-inch screen. The room has a high-definition projector, surround-sound speakers and 18 reclining chairs.
The complex’s one-and two-bedroom apartments range from 715 to 1,065 square feet and cost between $1,580 and $2,400 a month. Each is outfitted with carpeting and tile flooring, granite countertops, full-sized washers and dryers and central air conditioning. Each also has its own patio or balcony.
Rent includes cable TV and Internet; water, sewer and trash services; and access to educational programs and health and wellness activities. Also included is transportation to shopping and medical appointments and a daily continental breakfast.
A wireless medical alert system is installed in every bathroom. Each apartment also comes with a 4-by-3-by-7-foot storage locker.
All facilities are handicap accessible.
Thirty-eight garages are available, on a first come-first served basis, for an additional $125 a month.
The pet-friendly complex offers annual leases. There are no monthly maintenance fees or dues.
