The City of Tega Cay announced Charlotte, N.C.-based Senior Living Communities will construct a $30 million premier retirement community, named Wellmore, in the Stonecrest Development located on SC Highway 160 near Wal-Mart. The community is expected to create nearly 130 local jobs in health care and management, with sitework and landscape design contracts awarded to local firms.
The Wellmore size is nearly 130,000 square feet, with residential accommodations and a 25,000-square-foot-clubhouse and wellness center. Senior Living Communities hopes to begin construction as early as July 2012 and open the community in January 2014.
The Tega Cay center will offer skilled-care, Alzheimer’s care, rehabilitation services and two levels of assisted-living units.
Before the Wellmore can be built, Senior Living Communities must apply for a Certificate of Need to operate skilled nursing services with the SC DHEC.
