Horst Selected to Convert, Preserve, and Expand one of Collegeville’s Most Memorable Places


Horst Construction is excited to announce that it has been selected as the General Contractor for a new Providence Place Senior Living Community in Collegeville, PA. Construction is scheduled to begin fall 2017.

The site is the former Collegeville Inn, located at the intersection of Germantown and Ridge Pike in Lower Providence Township. Locals fondly remember the Inn for its smorgasbord restaurant, banquet facility, and of course, the carved bear that welcomed guests. The site is both nostalgic and scenic. Its proximity to the Perkiomen Creek will create a peaceful setting for future residents.

Horst will be restoring and remodeling the existing 39,000 sf building and adding 96,000 sf of new construction. The existing building, once restored, will serve as the main dining room and activities space for residents, as well as offices for the staff. The new construction will include 113 resident apartments adjacent to the Inn. The two-story addition will offer a variety of apartment sizes and styles—all with private baths.


Some of the newly created spaces within the renovated building will include a spa, community room, resident pub, activities room, and deck overlooking the creek.
