Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Winter Construction has begun building the new Canterfield Senior Living facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. The facility will include three floors and 74,000 square feet of total space.

Atlanta-based Medical Development Corp selected Winter Construction as the general contractor to build the new, cost-efficient Canterfield community in Kennesaw, and similar facilities in Franklin, Tennessee, and Bluffton, South Carolina. The expected completion date for the first phase of Canterfield Senior Living of Kennesaw is spring 2017.

MDC launched the Canterfield luxury senior living brand in 2011. Because MDC is involved in hotel and restaurant properties, the Canterfield concept utilizes both the continuum of healthcare and the services and amenities of the hospitality industry. Canterfield facilities also allow the resident to age in place, a benefit many communities do not offer, while satisfying each individual’s needs and desires in a country club-like setting.

Canterfield Senior Living of Kennesaw is positioned to take advantage of the growth of Cobb County, Georgia. Nearby Kennesaw State University recently consolidated with Southern Polytechnic State University to become one of the 50 largest universities in the country. The Atlanta Braves baseball team is building its new stadium in Cobb County, and expects to move there in 2017.

Atlanta-based architecture firm Corcoran Ota Group designed the Canterfield model with construction pricing efficiency in mind. Future maintenance cost-reduction is also a primary focus of initial building design.

“The Canterfield projects that are underway in Tennessee and South Carolina exemplify the productive relationship we have with Corcoran Ota and Medical Development Corp,” said Winter CEO Brent Reid. “We’re excited to begin the Kennesaw edition of Canterfield Senior Living here in Georgia.”
