Coweta OKs 380-unit senior living complex

The senior living project along Hollz Parkway off Ga. Highway 34 East in Newnan came a step closer to reality on Oct. 17.

Coweta commissioners by unanimous vote approved the rezoning of 14.62 acres from industrial (M) to RRCC (residential retirement community and care district) to combine with the existing retirement complex project.

The applicant has an interested buyer in all of the non-developed RRCC property and will purchase it upon completion of this request for an active lifestyle senior village, county staff were told by JPH Family Investments representatives.

This 14.62-acre portion of the property is being proposed to include condominiums and apartments for sale/rent for the 55 and above active lifestyle community, county staff said.

Project representative Dennis Drewyer said the aim is to have the acreage become a part of the “Senior Village” and interconnected campus for independent cottages, villas, apartments and condos.

Approved in 2014, the initial conceptual site plan was divided into two projects. The “Village Center” at approximately 28.52 acres called for a 48,000 sq. ft. assisted living and hospice center, a community center and 380 senior apartments, ranch-style condominiums and townhome flats.
