A development of ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, Inc., Lanier Village Estates in Gainesville, Georgia sets the standard for premier Continuing Care Retirement Communities. Nestled amidst the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, Lanier Village’s outdoor features are among many enticing lifestyle amenities that instill a resort-like feel for this community’s residents to enjoy. The 58,000 square foot Clubhouse and Wellness Center provide ample space for resident socialization, but the carefully designed outdoor spaces are what really make this Project special. Outdoor walking trails, water features and lakeside picnic areas are favorites for residents, as well as the tennis court, putting green, and garden areas.
Lanier Village Estates wanted a phased community. They were looking for a mountain lodge feel with warm, inviting, centralized interiors and flexible dining venues. Additionally, the design achieved connectivity between the differing levels of resident care; however, each maintains its own identity and interaction with various exterior environments. THW Design vigilantly executed architectural styles that reflect the ambiance of the surrounding mountain, stream, and lake features.
Lanier Village prioritizes resident satisfaction through various design choices and program implementation, and as a result, they are acknowledged as a leading not for profit Continuing Care Retirement Community.
