The Oconee County Code Enforcement Office issued a building permit on Thursday for construction of the 70-unit Thrive senior living facility on Virgil Langford Road in Resurgence Park.
Construction of the $6 million, upscale, assisted living facility to be known as The Village at Athens is expected to begin in two weeks and be completed by the end of July of 2015, according to the building permit.
Construction workers continued site preparation at the 4.9-acre lot today. The site has frontage on 316 but will have its entrance from Resurgence Drive, the loop road connecting Resurgence Park with Virgil Langford Road.
Paragon Athens LLC, the Oakbrook, Ill., owner of the site, was granted 5,250 gallons per day of sewage capacity despite earlier concerns on the part of the county that the facility might require expensive updates to county sewage infrastructure.
