Morning Pointe Announces Development Team For Chattanooga Assisted Living Community

Sunday, September 1, 2013

Independent Healthcare Properties (IHP) and Morning Pointe Assisted Living have named the development team that will participate in a construction and renovation project to include a new Morning Pointe of Chattanooga and The Lantern Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, both on Shallowford Road.

“Nearing completion of the zoning and permitting process, we are excited to move forward with this project and break ground in October,” said Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of IHP and Morning Pointe. “The development team is comprised of many Chattanooga-based companies that we have worked with on previous projects throughout the Southeast.”

Providing professional services are Neuhoff Taylor Architects, PC; East Tennessee Specialty Builders, general contractor; and CityScape Development Services, project manager. Other companies include civil engineers MAP Engineers, landscape architects Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc., and environmental engineers Thompson Engineering.

Phase one includes the new $9-million assisted living community on Shallowford Road that will offer 77 assisted living apartments in a 62,000-square-foot building situated on almost 10 acres. Upon completion, residents of the existing Morning Pointe will relocate across the road to the new facility.  Phase two will include a $2-million renovation of the current building, which will become The Lantern Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence. The construction and renovation projects are anticipated to take about two years, with the new Morning Pointe opening estimated for January 2015. Plans also call for future construction of a medical-related office building. “This project will create about 200 temporary construction jobs,” Mr. Vital said, “and create 85 new careers for the Chattanooga area.”
