Scott J. Hoppa, Senior Vice President - Southeast Region of McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has been selected by developer, The Integral Group LLC, to provide comprehensive construction services for the Oasis at Scholars Landing, a new affordable and assisted living residence for seniors.
The 60-unit, three- and four-story complex will be situated on a 2.1-acre site at the intersection of John Hope Drive and Parsons Street in Atlanta, Georgia. McShane Construction formed a joint venture with IBG Construction Services, LLC to complete the construction of the new development that is slated for delivery in late first quarter 2015.
Oasis at Scholars Landing will be comprised of 65,193 square feet of fully-featured assisted senior living space that has been carefully designed to accommodate the well-being of residents through the incorporation of numerous tenant amenities and services. Along with 60 one-bedroom units, the complex will feature a fitness center, hair salon, commercial kitchen and dining room, two activity rooms and a covered patio for outdoor entertainment.
The residence will also incorporate an artfully clad exterior utilizing a blend of brick and HardiePanel® elements, parking for 30 vehicles and generously landscaped grounds. Oasis at Scholars Landing will be constructed to meet EarthCraft Certification through the use of numerous sustainable design and construction features such as low VOC and Energy Star appliances. The project is being partially funded by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs’ Low Income Housing Tax Credit program and the Atlanta Housing Authority.
As part of the assignment, McShane Construction and IBG Construction will complete sitework and public improvements to the portion of John Hope Drive where the property is located that will include additional landscaping, exterior lighting and the installation of sidewalks.
“McShane Construction, in partnership with IBG Construction Services, is delighted to have been selected by The Integral Group to provide high-quality construction services to benefit the growing demand for affordable, assisted living for seniors,” remarked Hoppa. “Through our decades of experience in constructing a wide variety of senior living environments and our vast expertise within the multi-family market, we are confident that the completed project will align with the goals of our client to provide a fully-featured and affordable living environment for the development’s senior residents.”
