CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Independent Healthcare Properties (IHP) and Morning Pointe Senior Living announce the approval by the Hamilton County government for the construction of the Morning Pointe of East Hamilton senior living campus in the 9700 block of East Brainerd Road, just past the intersection of Ooltewah-Ringgold and East Brainerd roads. Site work will begin in the next 45 days.
The $35 million, 24-acre campus consists of three phases, beginning with a 73-unit craftsman-styled assisted living community. Phase two will be a 60-unit freestanding Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence – a secured environment dedicated to the care of residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory care needs. The final phase will feature a 120-unit independent living center on 11 acres to compliment the full range of services designed to meet the needs of the 55+ population.
Morning Pointe expects completion of the first phase by fall of 2019. The development team for the project includes Nashville architect HFR Design, Harrison-based East Tennessee Specialty Builders and Alzheimer’s memory care architect Neuhoff Taylor Architects. Chattanooga-based MAP Engineers will be providing civil engineering.
The senior campus will offer high-quality amenities including walking trails, exercise paths and beautifully landscaped grounds. The communities will also feature fine dining with local, farm fresh foods through Morning Pointe’s “Farm to Table” program, life enrichment and professional health and wellness services. Daily activities will feature innovative therapeutic programs, including the Meaningful Day™ program and physical and occupational therapies, to ensure the highest quality of care for residents.
