SNELLVILLE – A 24.73-acre senior housing development on Highway 78 has been approved by Mayor and Council.
The project by Ridgecliff LLC, calls for a mixed-use senior citizen development including retail and restaurant space, medical buildings, 225 Independent Living units, 55 Assisted Living units, 24 memory Care units and 85 single-family townhomes for those 55 and older.
The project, located at 1672 Athens Highway at Crestview Drive, will be one of the few in the region which combines senior housing options with retail and restaurant space and fills a void for senior housing options in the city, officials said.
“This is a win for the City of Snellville,” Planning and Development Director Jason Thompson said. “There are few, if any, senior housing options in the area that offer doctor’s offices, retail and restaurant space on a campus for seniors which offers varied levels of care and living choices. We have identified a need for senior housing and this will do just that.”
Dubbed The Villas @Crestview, the campus will include two parks, a community center and recreation space.
Construction is expected to take place soon and is expected to be completed within two years, city officials said.
