May 12, 2017 – Shepard Health and Cobalt Seniors broke ground this week on Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters and Pooler Physical Therapy near the intersection of I-16 and Pooler Parkway.

The 124-resident development is the first in Georgia for the Shepherd and Cobalt partnership, and will span 10 acres, and include two single-story buildings totaling 86,000 sq. ft. of living space and facilities.

“This is a great day for the City of Pooler,” said Pooler Mayor Mike Lamb. “Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters is the premier senior community in the Coastal Empire and will not only benefit our 55 and older residents, but be an economic boon for our entire area.”

The project will create approximately 200 jobs throughout the construction period and, once completed, approximately 65+ additional jobs for permanent operations.

Residents will be able to access a host of amenities, including gourmet farm-to-table food, fine wine storage, a full- service salon, a greenhouse and numerous gardening opportunities, private kitchens, animal therapy, extensive walking trails and landscaping throughout the large grounds, and even a tavern, according to the company.

The wellness lifestyle at Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters also includes daily classes ranging from meditation and gentle yoga to aerobics and circuit training. Certain amenities, such as the spa, wellness center and classes, will be open to members of the public age 55 and older. Others, such as the restaurant and many social activities, are open to those of all ages.

According to Shepherd Health co-Founder and CEO Christine Menedis,  “We have created a new breed of community. Thoughtfully designing our projects to engage the entire regional population, we look at the lifestyles of an area and understand how we can serve to enhance them and simultaneously create continuity for seniors. It’s one of the many reasons Pooler and the broader Savannah region is such a natural fit for us. The area shares many of our core values, such as family, community, a rich food, art, and wellness culture, as well as a sense of history and a desire to give back and engage with neighbors.”

Pooler Physical Therapy will provide on-site services to Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters residents, as well as serving the needs of the broader community of all ages. In addition to working with local physicians and practices, Pooler Physical Therapy will engage with business to provide direct-contracted, on-site care for their employees. “SEDA (Savannah Economic Development Authority) and the local chambers of commerce have been very welcoming and we look forward to exploring new and unique ways to serve their local members,” says Erik de Vries, Principal and President of Cobalt Medical Development.

Shepherd Living at Savannah Quarters expects to begin pre-leasing activities in Nov. 2017.
