AUTHORS Geert De Lombaerde
A regional operator of senior living properties plans to build an assisted-living and memory care campus just east of the heart of Spring Hill.
Independent Healthcare Properties executives said Tuesday their Morning Pointe of Spring Hill project will have the capacity for 80 assisted-living resident and 52 memory care patients. The development will be located on Miles Johnson Parkway south of Duplex Road and be part of a broader, 140-acre community with residential and retail sections.
Construction work on Morning Pointe is expected to start this summer and take about a year. The campus will employ 125 people when it opens. Independent runs 26 senior living campuses in five states. Seventeen of those are in Tennessee, including locations on Wilson Pike in Brentwood, west of downtown Franklin and in Columbia.
“The continued expansion of Nashville into Maury and Williamson Counties on I-65 offers an opportunity for Morning Pointe to serve additional aging seniors,” said Greg Vital, president and CEO of Independent. “With an increasing number of people living longer, Morning Pointe is working to meet the need, giving residents and their families options and choices in quality care and customer service.”
On board helping with the design and construction of Morning Pointe are local firm HFR Design Inc., Gamble Design Collaborative and Kimley-Horn. ETSB LLC of Chattanooga is serving as the general contractor.
