The new Riverview Manor will have 36 more beds than the current home houses. There will also be wider hallways, more home-like dining and lounge spaces, and privacy for residents will be improved by having only one- and two-bed rooms.

The new home will also surround a spacious courtyard complete with a walking loop paved with an “elder-friendly surface,” patio seating and a sandbox for visiting children to enjoy.

The new Riverview Manor will be built on a plot of land OMNI has secured on Langton St. in Peterborough’s north end. Construction on the home is expected to start this fall and will be complete by December 2022.
