The project on its campuses on Guilford College Rd. and Friendly Ave. include the expansion of Friends Homes West that will add villas, townhomes and cottages, and the addition of one-story townhomes at Friends Homes Guilford, News & Record reports.
The west campus will get 11 3-bedroom cottages, eight 2-bedroom townhomes and three buildings that will contain 54 villa apartments. All the apartments and homes, ranging from 1,400 to 1,900 sq. ft., will feature open floor plans, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and multiple views. Plans call for 20 townhomes, some 2-bedroom units and another type of 2-bedroom units with a den to be added to the Friends Homes Guilford campus.
Plans also include an expanded wellness center with more fitness options and a new sports court at Friends Home West. In addition, a new bistro, a pizza oven and an outdoor dining area are planned for the Friends Home West campus.
