ACWORTH — Six years after originally planned, the roof of Acworth’s newest senior living center is complete.

The Alpharetta-based management company, Trinity Lifestyles, has almost completed construction of the center, which is expected to open in April 2014 on Main Street in downtown Acworth.

Atlanta-based Choate Construction has built the structure for roughly $22 million.

Dogwood Forest will be the first assisted-living community of its kind within city limits and will include 93 units for seniors.

The facility is expected to bring more than 70 jobs to the city, according to a news release.

Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood is excited for the city to become a destination for seniors, and for the jobs that will come with the development.

“This assisted-living community brings a whole new type of lifestyle for our aging population,” Allegood said.

Future residents will have multiple options for transportation around the city, he added, which will further enchance the city’s growth.

Construction of the three-story, $22 million, 87,000-square-foot facility began in January 2013, when the first residents will move in, said Nicolle Williams, a spokeswoman for Trinity Management.

As of the month of December, 30 percent of the rooms in the community have been leased.

The Acworth location is one of eight Trinity assisted-living properties, Williams said. Others are in Buckhead, Dunwoody, Alpharetta and Gainesville.

On Friday, the project’s developers, Solomon Development, and representatives from Trinity Management met to plant a tree to celebrate the completion of the structure’s roof.
