The concept of Broadview – Senior Living at Purchase College began taking shape in 2002, when a plan was developed for a senior living community on the college campus. This retirement community would not only serve the needs of a growing senior population in the greater Westchester County area, but also provide unique opportunities for intergenerational learning, creativity and mentoring.
We’re excited to announce this plan is now moving forward. The initial phase of the proposed community will include 220 independent living apartments and villas for seniors ages 62 and older. In addition, assisted living apartments and memory care suites will be available on site.
Residents will have a full range of amenities on campus, including dining venues, a fitness center, pool, salon, library and movie theater. A landscaped area between the main independent living apartment building and villa neighborhood will include walking paths, gardens, an outdoor dining area and amphitheater – the perfect spot to enjoy a performance on a summer’s evening.
The design for Broadview also includes a unique “Learning Commons,” a 12,000-square-foot space where residents and students can learn from each other or simply exchange views over a cup of coffee. Classrooms, art studios, a performance space, culinary classroom and a café are all included in this collaborative meeting and learning space.
Residents who wish to participate will be able to audit classes on the Purchase College campus and attend theatrical and cultural events at the Performing Arts Center and Neuberger Museum of Art for a modest cost.
Local restaurants, shopping and attractions can be found just off campus in White Plains, NY, while Rye, Scarsdale, Armonk, Harrison and Greenwich are within 5 miles. Some of the country’s top golf courses – including Old Oaks, Century, Westchester Country Club, and Blind Brook – are also nearby. Plus, Manhattan is less than an hour away by car or train.
