Watercrest of Columbia
Watercrest Columbia is a 92,289 sf, 107 unit assisted living and memory care community. This community will incorporate 75 assisted living units with a mixture of studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom units, as well as 32 memory care units.
The assisted living common area includes a salon, bar area, private dining, community dining, children’s play area, therapy room and an exterior fountain and outdoor pool. The memory care common area incorporates the Market Street concept with a family room, salon, bakery and public dining area. The apartments in the Watercrest communities are larger with a higher end finish level such as tile showers and granite counter tops.
Situated in the capital and largest city in the state of South Carolina, Watercrest Columbia’s surrounding area has been recognized as one of the “best places to retire” (US News and World Report 2009), one of the “10 greatest cities to live in” (Kiplinger Magazine), and one of “America’s most livable communities” (Partners for Livable Communities).
The proposed site is approximately 1.5 miles west of the Village at Sandhill, a 300-acre multi-phase lifestyle center development that incorporates streetscape character with specialty retailers and restaurants intermingled among residential, professional, and recreational settings. The area maintains a balance of commercial, professional, retail, moderate to luxury residential, and cultural engagement, and appears poised for growth.
