A developer has released a new design illustration of the 200-unit Somerby of Sandy Springs senior housing complex slated to open in December at 25 Glenlake Parkway.

A new illustration of the Somerby of Sandy Springs senior housing complex under construction at 25 Glenlake Parkway.

The illustration shows two peaked-roof buildings, one 5 stories and the other 3 stories. The image was sent with a press release announcing that construction is underway, though in fact the work already began 10 months ago at the 6-acre site near the Ga. 400/Abernathy Road interchange.

“Somerby” is a line of luxury senior housing complexes developed by Alabama-based Dominion Partners. The Sandy Springs location will have 128 independent living units, 48 assisted-living units and 24 “memory care” units, according to the press release. The complex also features a long list of amenities, such as a health center, an art studio, a salon and spa, full dining services. The complex will create 150 jobs, the press release says.

Senior housing is a boom market at the moment. Other local proposed senior living complexes include an expansion of Mansions Senior Living on Spalding Drive and a controversial 201-unit luxury complex proposed to replace the Apostles Church on Hammond Drive.
