Construction is scheduled to start in early 2020, a news release said. The community will have a total of 231 units comprising 175 independent-living, 40 assisted-living and 16 memory care units.
Atlas expects to hire over 100 people full-time for the community, the release said.
The site for the project has been identified and is soon to be under contract, but Atlas is not publicizing the location yet, President and CEO Scott Goldberg told Community Impact Newspaper in a follow-up email.
Birmingham-based Atlas Senior Living operates 11 retirement communities in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky, offering independent living, assisted living and memory care services, the release said. In 2020, Atlas will expand into Florida and Texas.
