Oasis at Scholars Landing

Atlanta GA

The Oasis at Scholars Landing is a 60 unit Assisted Living Residence located on the western side of the city of Atlanta, GA adjacent to several college campuses, and directly across the street from its sister building – a recently completed Independent Senior Residence. This “senior campus” was developed by the Integral Group out of Atlanta, Georgia, and funded by Low Income Housing Tax Credits administered through the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA). Scholars Landing is one of the first projects of its kind to provide affordable Assisted Living services to a vastly underserved segment of the community.

The apartment units are designed as fully Independent residences, with full private living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. The common areas providing the Assisted Living services include a large, communal Dining Room, a Commercial Kitchen, Activity Rooms, TV Lounge, Exercise, Salon, Computer/Library, Resident Care Office, and Personal Care suite. An exterior Dining Porch and an entry patio that includes a gazebo, with connections to a winding walking path, encourages residents to enjoy the outdoors and provides opportunities for additional exercise. Warm colors and rich textures on the floors, walls, and ceilings provides a welcoming, homelike experience to residents, guests, and staff.

Energy efficiency is also a key factor in the design of the project, with the building meeting the strict requirements of the Georgia DCAs Sustainable Building Certification. High levels of insulation with energy efficient doors and windows, Energy Star rated light fixtures, low flow plumbing fixtures, high efficiency HVAC systems, and low VOC building materials keep the residents comfortable while enjoying a safe, healthy indoor environment.
