BL Harbert to Build the Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care Community

Watercrest Senior Living Group announces its southeastern expansion, with the development of Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care Community in Newnan, Georgia.

The 107-unit, luxury senior living community, designed by D2 Architecture, will break ground in November 2017, featuring resort-style service, extraordinary care and luxurious residences.

Watercrest Senior Living Group is pleased to award construction of the Watercrest Newnan building to BL Harbert International of Atlanta, Georgia. The building contract includes a 92,000-square-foot, luxury senior living community, with single-story and three-story buildings, containing 75 assisted living and 32 memory care residences.

Watercrest Newnan is a signature Watercrest product offering premium accommodations and innovative design. Upon completion, Watercrest Newnan will include a stunning promenade, pool, fireplace, signature water wall, multiple dining venues and children’s play space. It will also feature Watercrest’s uniquely designed Market Street ‘outdoor’ streetscape with salon and spa, barber shop, post office, and newsstand, a highlight and crucial element of their multi-sensory memory care programming.

“During our preconstruction phase, the team at BL Harbert International showed true passion for this project and alignment with our company culture, instilling great confidence in their team to construct Watercrest Newnan,” says Jeremy Cairns, VP of Construction for Watercrest Senior Living Group.

Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care is located at 285 Summerlin Boulevard, Newnan, Georgia, 30265. Watercrest Senior Living Group of Vero Beach, Florida, will serve as developer, construction manager and operator of the project.

With multiple senior living projects in development throughout the southeast, Watercrest principals, Marc Vorkapich, CEO and Joan Williams, CFO, are setting new standards of quality for seniors and their families in the development of upscale, senior living communities.

“As Watercrest expands into multiple markets throughout the southeast, it is imperative that we align ourselves with partners, such as BL Harbert, who not only demonstrate in-depth knowledge of the market, but value relationships and go ‘beyond building’ to make a significant impact in our communities,” says Vorkapich.

Watercrest Newnan plans will be available the week of August 14th. For bidding opportunities, contact BL Harbert at or email
