The Lodge at Columbus, Magnolia Manor's Newest Jewel
Magnolia Manor Corporate Office, Americus, GA, October 25, 2019 - Magnolia Manor Senior Living Community, a non-profit organization headquartered in Americus, would like to announce its plans to begin building its tenth campus! By October 2020, we expect to enter the construction phase of this new location in Columbus, GA.
On October 23, the board of directors gave its blessing to launch this ambitious 20-month construction project at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and Pierce Chapel Road. Sitting on 41 acres of rolling hills in North Muscogee County, the new location will be called The Lodge, a Magnolia Manor Community. “The Lodge” will be a beautiful community for older adults who want an all-inclusive lifestyle that can enhance their social, spiritual, mental and physical well-being. The facility will include a spa with hair, nail and massage services. It will also feature a fitness center and an inspiring chapel. Along with the serene, well-maintained grounds, residents will have the luxuries of participating in regularly scheduled educational, recreational, cultural, and spiritual experiences at The Lodge. The Lodge will also offer services to handle their housekeeping, maintenance, and transportation needs.
Together with the city of Columbus, ground-breaking is scheduled to commence in October 2020. We anticipate that it will be completed in mid-2022, allowing residents to begin moving in. The city will be constructing a sewage line that must be completed before construction crews can begin on the property.
The community will consist of 304 residences including 100 independent living apartments, 24 cottages, 30 assisted living memory care suites, 48 assisted living apartments, 72 long-term care residences as well as 30 private short-term rehabilitation suites. From the smallest private suite to the largest two-bedroom cottage, there are several spacious floorplans for residents to choose from. In addition to a variety of housing options, The Lodge will also include numerous dining venues and gathering spaces. A number of amenities along with an outdoor deck overlooking the property will provide an attractive setting for the residents to indulge in.
Magnolia Manor, founded in 1963, draws on its roots in the Methodist Church to give seniors a loving, Christian environment to thrive in the 21st century. Its mission is “to serve all through love and support for a lifetime.” Through its mission, Magnolia Manor saw a need to expand its reach to a segment of the community in Columbus, which was underserviced. This desire to serve gave birth to the vision for “The Lodge.”.
Magnolia Manor creates a Christian based community where compassion and respect can be felt by each resident. This nurturing and loving Christian environment is the embodiment of the mission at Magnolia Manor and is sure to establish a homelike atmosphere that will help residents enjoy life, family, and friends for generations to come.
Headquartered in Americus, Georgia, Magnolia Manor is a faith-based, tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization affiliated by covenant with the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Magnolia Manor was established in 1959 and serves more than 1,300 senior adults daily throughout South Georgia. Services at our nine locations are open to all persons, regardless of denominational affiliation. We provide various levels of care including Independent Living, Catered Care, Personal Care, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing, and specialized Memory Care.
