Construction begins on The Pond On Fulling Mill, a 55+ community

A new community for those ages 55 and over, recently broke ground in Lower Swatara Township.

The Pond On Fulling Mill broke ground earlier this month at the corner of Nissley Drive and Fulling Mill Road. When all three phases are completed, The Pond On Fulling Mill will have 83 homes, a combination of California quads, townhomes and duplexes. The neighborhood will also have walking trails, a pond and a community center.

The Pond On Fulling Mill is being developed by Sierra Glen Partners V. Ian Castaneira of Sierra Glen Partners V in Highspire says that there are a lot of communities for those ages 55 and over being built but, Castaneira says that one of the main goals behind this community is not only to have a nice place to live but, one that is affordable.

“We thought it would be nice to supply a good quality home, a little bit more affordable,” he said.

The price range for the homes will be from $199,000 to $269,000.
