The COSTCO warehouse club store now under construction at Fischer Crossings on Ga. Highway 34 in east Coweta County near Peachtree City will soon get a new neighbor.
A proposal to establish a residential retirement community in the northeast quadrant of the Fischer Crossings commercial area was approved June 18 by the Coweta County Commission.
Commissioners approved the proposal by Fortress Ventures to establish the retirement community on 13.5 acres immediately to the north of the COSTCO store now under construction.
The approval to rezone the property to RRCC (residential retirement and community care district) came on a 5-0 vote. The project includes 162 units, with 90 independent units for those age 55 and older, 40 assisted living units and 32 memory care units.
Building elevations show the memory care building, with its own interior courtyard, at one-story, the assisted living building at two stories and the independent living building at four floors. The buildings will be majority brick.
Coweta County Community Development Assistant Director Angela White said the project conforms to the county’s comprehensive plan and to the future land use plan.
White said the project received letters of support from property owners to the north and east of the project site.
Commissioners were told that the $50 million development will have 120 employees with an expected annual payroll of $4.2 million.
The property, considered a transitional area, is situated on the northeast corner of the Fischer Crossings commercial development, with COSTCO to the south and single-family homes to the north on Fischer Road.
