Seniors in the East Cobb area will soon have a new option, now that construction is underway for The Solana East Cobb. The 94-unit assisted living and memory care community will be located at 1032 Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta.

St. Louis-based general contractor S. M. Wilson & Co., is building the 78,000 square foot, three-story community. Atlanta-based Formation Development Group is owner and developer; The Arbor Company, also based in Atlanta, will operate the new community.

The new community will feature 66 upscale senior assisted living apartments and 28 apartments in a specialized memory care neighborhood designed for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or forms of dementia. New residents will be able to choose from a variety of apartment floor plans, including studio apartments, one bedrooms, one bedrooms with dens and two bedrooms, ranging from 353 to 761 square feet per unit. Pricing will start at $3,995 per month.

The new community will also bring new jobs to the East Cobb area — the equivalent of approximately 75 construction jobs during the building of the community, and then about 80 staff positions once the community opens.

Amenities in the new apartments will include built-in shelving, linen nooks and other unique  interior features. Private terraces are available in some apartments and residents who choose shared apartments will have separate vanities.

Residents will enjoy a large fitness room and wellness center, both with direct access to an outdoor terrace and equipped for both physical and occupational therapy. Residents may also gather to play cards or board games in the card room or catch a new release in the theater.

The Solana East Cobb is scheduled to open in late fall of 2017. An information center for interested residents will open on-site in June 2017. For more information, visit
