Tapestry Runnemede is the proposed adaptive reuse of an existing closed hotel to senior housing and adult day care. The original hotel configuration was 176 hotel rooms. The new proposed configuration consists of 120 units comprised of studios, one and two bedroom units. Two baths are included in both the one-bedroom and two- bedroom plans. Many of the existing rooms will be combined to create one and two bedrooms. Bathrooms will be renovated with new walk-in showers. Granite vanities will be the standard.
All units will be renovated to include new full kitchens, appliances and simulated wood floors. The first floor contains a full kitchen and generous common spaces. All first floor areas will be renovated to accommodate independent senior living and adult day care. A use variance was to senior housing by the Borough and of Runnemede on September 12, 2018. The property is classified as a Residential Health Care Facility based on New Jersey regulations. The property will operate as an independent living facility with services.
Because of the strong demand for additional services, Tapestry will construct an addition connected to the renovated facility for 64-assisted living and memory care units. The property will be licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health. The facility will also offer other services as a licensed Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility (CORF) that include outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic, and restorative services. CORF care is commonly known as outpatient rehabilitation care. CORFs must provide medical care, therapy, and certain social or psychological services.
