STONECREST, GA—City officials recently celebrated the grand opening of StonePointe Senior Living apartment homes with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the upscale community. The new development—the city’s first approved by the Stonecrest Housing Authority—features resort-style amenities and is located at 6757 Covington Highway.
City Councilman Rob Turner, who officiated the ribbon cutting ceremony, praised the complex, saying it is a welcome development in District 2, which he serves, and for the city at large. Turner was joined for the Feb. 2 celebration event by Mayor pro tem George Turner and Councilwoman Jazzmin Cobble.
“It is a beautiful, quality community that Stonecrest is very proud of. Affordable housing, locally and around the nation, has become a critical issue, especially for many of our seniors living on fixed incomes and this project is a great example of the kind of development that is needed in our city,” said Councilman Rob Turner. “These are upscale apartment homes that provide many amenities that seniors will enjoy.”
StonePointe offers 238 units—1 to 3 bedrooms with market rents ranging from $835 to $1,128 per month.
