Anthology of King of Prussia

Anthology of King of Prussia is a state-of-the-art senior living high-rise located within a new mixed-use community in Montgomery County, PA. Wohlsen Construction provided preconstruction and construction management services to construct the 11-story building spanning 187,600 square feet, seamlessly integrated with a three-story, 68,000-square-foot parking garage. The design, courtesy of Perkins Eastman, encapsulates visionary aesthetics and meticulous planning. The senior living community houses 192 total units, offering residents a spectrum of living options, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care beds, complemented by indoor and outdoor amenities. The project execution demanded immense coordination as the team navigated numerous challenges, such as building on a tight site with unsuitable soil, material delays due to a global pandemic, and the pursuit of top-notch quality. Despite these hurdles, the team’s collective efforts culminated in the successful delivery of a modern senior living facility that harmoniously blends urban and suburban living, providing residents with comfortable homes, an engaging lifestyle, and captivating views of the city of Philadelphia.

Bridging City and Suburban Living

Anthology of King of Prussia stands as a testament to the vision of blending city and suburban living. Nestled in a unique 1.4-acre site, the project was born out of a desire to bring a luxury senior living community to the suburbs of Philadelphia. Its strategic location near the King of Prussia Mall, the East Coast’s largest shopping destination, ensures residents have easy access to retail, dining, and entertainment options.

The community prides itself on offering luxury and independence, bridging the soft, quiet countryside to the active, bustling city life. Anthology of King of Prussia provides seniors the best of both worlds in retirement.

Constructing a High-rise

Quality and craftsmanship were critical to the success of building the new high-rise senior living facility. Preinstallation meetings were held with all subcontractors to ensure compliance with all design details and the quality installation of materials. This extra step to ensure quality was critical as the apartments had high-end finishes throughout. Best Building practices were employed, including a six-month BIM process to finetune mechanical and electrical design and the creation of mockups to determine the best way to meet design specifications and quality standards. The immense preparation for this project facilitated efficient construction and excellent results.

Building on a Tight Site

The construction of this project presented a unique challenge, as it was built on a tight site during a global pandemic. The limited areas of disturbance called for innovative methods to meet the demands of a tight schedule, and the compact nature of the site necessitated strict adherence to safety guidelines for the construction team and visitors. The Wohlsen team provided special training to subcontractors and team members, focusing on understanding the site, soil, movement, and installation of materials for the 11-story building. The site was meticulously prepped well in advance for construction, a critical element of the project. Despite these challenges, the team’s dedication and innovative approach ensured the successful completion of the project.

Luxury Senior Living

Anthology of King of Prussia is the epitome of luxury in senior living. This high-rise community offers an expansive 20,000 sq. ft. of amenity spaces for residents to enjoy. The building houses multiple dining options, including a dining room, café/bistro, and private dining space, all complemented by a commercial kitchen. Additional amenities include an indoor pool, theatre, chapel, fitness center, salon, game room, and various activity rooms. A three-story parking garage accommodates parking needs, and memory care units were thoughtfully constructed above it. The 11th floor features two sky decks, providing breathtaking views. The ground level is designed with walking paths, courtyards, and gardens for residents to enjoy the outdoors. Every angle of this luxurious high-rise offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and the skyline of Philadelphia, making it a truly exceptional place for senior living.
