Oak Crest Entry Way Gets a New Look

Retirement community receives over 300,000 visitors annually

PARKVILLE, MD---For visitors of Oak Crest, the Erickson Living retirement community located on Walther Boulevard, the entry into the 90-acre campus became even easier. A new internal road design allows visitors to drive directly to the Town Center clubhouse, which houses the sales & marketing office as well as other amenities such as the fitness center and in-house TV studio.  Additionally, the pattern shortens the trip to the employee parking lot. The new road pattern was officially opened at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in August. Joyce Malone is the Director of General Services at Oak Crest.  "Over 300,000 people visit Oak Crest each year.  It is an amazing number of family members, special guests and vendors," stated Ms. Malone.  "The idea for the new design was to provide added convenience for our guests by providing direct access to the Town Center clubhouse, a true hub of our campus, and the Chapel." "Two added benefits were quicker entry into the employee parking lot and a new beautiful landscape design," described Ms. Malone. The project, which took six weeks to complete, was designed by Tesseract Sites, Inc. of Towson; Gray & Son, Inc. was the main contractor for the roadwork and paving.  Oak Crest employees Stephen Adams and George Pattee served as project managers. Additionally, a new front gatehouse at the main entrance is currently under construction.
