Refurbishment to be Completed on Touchmark at Coffee Creek
EDMOND, OK–Residents living at Touchmark at Coffee Creek will be putting up with some dust and disruption over the next several months but are excited about the changes as work progresses to upgrade the full-service retirement community.
“It’s a bit of a mess now, but you have to keep your eye on what it’s going to look like when it’s all done,” said Doris Schnuelle, a Touchmark resident who is also the Resident Council President. “It’s going to be really nice when finished!”
A new gathering spot—Thunder Alley Pub—will be ideal for watching OKC Thunder games and visiting with neighbors. Outfitted with casual soft seating, TVs for sports viewing and dining tables, the new area will include a variety of beverages and a menu of food choices prepared by Touchmark’s Executive Chef and Dining Services team. The Pub will be available for private events, as well, and will occupy the current library, which will move to the second floor.
The new library will include a Wi-Fi-connected computer and magnifier station along with the wide selection of books.
All common areas including lobbies, cafe, grand hall, salon, activities room, exterior, balconies and exterior lighting are being renovated. Charley’s, a casual café located adjacent to the lobby, will be updated and feature more food options.
“When it’s done, people will walk in the door, and it will feel like a new space, because along with updating the carpet, paint, lighting and furnishings throughout the building, we’re organizing the space differently,” notes Executive Director Michael Stockman. He says residents are excited about the new finishes, which contemporize Touchmark’s look and provide new life-engaging areas to enrich people’s daily lives.
A new health and fitness studio that featuring state-of-the-art exercise equipment, furnishings and a group exercise room was completed last year. Starting in early spring, classes will be open to the public.
The project is expected to be completed later this year. Timberlake Construction Company, Inc. is the general contractor.
Touchmark at Coffee Creek is part of the Coffee Creek 638-acre planned residential development, which includes recreational centers and walking and biking trails for Coffee Creek homeowners. A full-service retirement community, Touchmark at Coffee Creek offers a wide range of single-family and apartment homes and lifestyle options.
