Construction is set to begin this month in the Five Forks area of Simpsonville on a new senior retirement community called The Crossings at Five Forks, offering independent living, assisted living and memory-care services.
Roanoke, Va.-based Harmony Senior Services, a division of Smith/Packett Med-Com, is developing the 183,000-square-foot community located at 345 Five Forks Road, at the corner of Five Forks and Woodruff roads.
The 172-residence community will be comprised of 100 independent living residences, 48 assisted living residences and a 24-bed memory care neighborhood known as Harmony Square Town Center. The Crossings at Five Forks will be equipped with the latest technology and senior-living design amenities, including spacious one- and two-bedroom residences with full kitchens, a library and computer lab, an on-site fitness center, theater, pub and dining room.
“The Crossings at Five Forks has been specifically designed to provide residents with a true sense of community, which is different than most people think when considering more traditional senior living models,” said Brent Russell, chief operating officer of Harmony Senior Services. “The Crossings will be a state-of-the-art, technologically advanced community that strives to meet the needs of independent living, assisted living and memory care residents in a comfortable and homelike setting, while also offering 24-hour nursing, rehabilitation and therapy services on site, and other amenities should residents’ needs change.”
The community is expected to generate approximately 100 local jobs, and is expected to be completed in fall 2016.
