SNELLVILLE – A plan for a senior housing development to be located behind Eastside Medical Center was released today.
Senior Lifestyle Corporation, a privately-held owner, operator and developer of seniors housing communities and its co-developer, Griffin Fine Living, LLC, announced development plans for The Sheridan at Eastside.
The Sheridan’s construction is slated to begin in the fall of 2017 with a projected opening date for residents in late 2018.
The Sheridan at Eastside will feature 81 independent-living and 60 assisted-living apartment homes, 24 independent-living cottages and 32 memory care residences. The 190,000-square-foot retirement community will sit on approximately 15 acres of land a few blocks north of Ronald Parkway on Tree Lane, adjacent to Eastside Regional Medical Center.
“When Griffin Fine Living introduced us to this opportunity, we knew it was the perfect setting for a Sheridan Collection thanks to the property’s naturally appealing scenery, its proximity to a vibrant commercial center, and its location in a city that is arguably the jewel of Gwinnett County,” said Bob Gawronski, vice president of development and acquisitions for Senior Lifestyle Corporation. “One thing that makes our properties stand out is that we complement our upscale amenities and proximity to healthcare and area shopping with exceptional care and hospitality that makes residents feel at home and gives families peace of mind.”
Residents of the community will have access to about 24,000 square feet of common space with multiple dining options, a spa, theater, fitness and wellness center, art studio, business center, various multi-purpose lounges, a swimming pool, and more. In addition, the future retirement community is part of a growing residential zone, with a planned single-family residential development next door. The property will also feature outdoor access to walking paths leading to a 5-acre pond on the campus.
Once fully occupied, The Sheridan at Eastside will directly create more than 100 new full and part-time permanent jobs in the community.
“We are very pleased to welcome Senior Lifestyle Corporation to the Snellville community,” said City Manager Butch Sanders. “Adding The Sheridan at Eastside in an area of town that is increasingly becoming more residential means we are able to provide comfortable, convenient and care-centric residence options for our senior citizens, in proximity to their extended families.”
