Square Footage 330,000
Location Acworth, GA

Independent Living Facility

The resort-like independent living facility, which totals 243,000-SF, features a convenient five-story parking deck. The exterior offers an exquisite mountain-lodge feel combining heavy timber balconies, an entry drop-off, outdoor dining, and pavilion area. An asphalt shingle mansard roof mirrors Dogwood Forest of Acworth Assisted Living with a TPO roof well hiding most of the mechanical equipment from view. Residents can enjoy a recreational and therapy pool, media room, on-site spa, and delicious cuisine at the dining facility and bistro.

Assisted Living Facility

Nestled in the “Lake City” of Acworth, GA, the three-story Assisted Living building totals 85,000 SF and is comprised of 92 units, 46 of which are memory care units for residents with Alzheimer’s disease.

Offering programming and services for seniors at all levels of activeness, Dogwood Forest’s amenities provide for a high standard of living. Residents can enjoy a cup of tea in the bistro, stroll through the lush landscape, participate in an exercise program in the fitness center, or stop in for a haircut in the barbershop/salon. Residents have the building and gardens at their disposal to enjoy dining, activities and interacting with family and friends. Cozy nooks, a corner in the garden, or their own residential suites provide solitude and privacy. Other features include a resident theater, dining room with full commercial kitchen, common area living room, sitting areas, and covered, screened porches located throughout the community.

Layout and architectural features are designed to ensure safety and mobility. Interior design plays an important role in creating a calming and sophisticated setting, and color schemes help define locations and create situational awareness. Craftsman-style cottage finishes create a comfortable, warm atmosphere, including nine stone fireplaces. Previously home to a car dealership, extensive demolition and site work is required.
