Expansion Planned for Harbor Campus
Capri Senior Communities has announced its plan to acquire and expand Harbor Campus, a 130-unit independent, assisted, and memory care community in Port Washington.
"Capri and Harbor Campus share a philosophy of care and community that focuses on people, and both of us believe this transition is an excellent fit for residents, employees and the Port Washington area as a whole," said Jim Tarantino, founder and principal of Capri Senior Communities. "Gus Antonneau and his team have established a solid track record of success, which provides a strong foundation for the future at Harbor Campus."
Gus Antonneau, who has owned and operated Harbor Campus since 1955, said, "It is important - to me personally and to our residents and employees - that our campus remains in the very best hands. I'm confident we've found the right fit for our future."
A three-phase plan is in place to upgrade and expand the campus. This includes a new, 62-apartment independent living building addition, a new grand campus entrance, additional memory care units, and development on currently undeveloped property.
Both Capri and Antonneau are committed to a smooth transition, Tarantino said, including preserving jobs. Additionally, Stepping Stones Children's Center and the Metro Model Railroad Club, longtime tenants at Harbor Campus, will remain on site after the sale.
"Stepping Stones and the railroad club are valuable parts of this community, providing wonderful opportunities for intergenerational activities and recreational enjoyment," said Tarantino. "We have also begun to meet with residents, families and employees to introduce Capri and our plans. On all sides, there is a lot of excitement about the future."
