Continuing Care Retirement Community - CCRCs are so named because they address the entire continuum of care with healthy seniors moving into independent living apartments, but having the security of knowing they can "age in place" thanks to assisted living and skilled nursing services on site. The number of CCRCs nationally has risen sharply over the past 25 years from 274 in the early 1980s to 2,240 in 2005, according to the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

When Lenbrook, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), opened in 1983, two-bedroom units averaged 1,000 square feet.

Now the campus, which is just five blocks north of Phipps Plaza, is undergoing a nearly $165 million expansion including a 25-story tower and garden apartments ranging up to almost 3,000 square feet, plus lavish amenities -- including a spa, a gym, four dining rooms and a movie theater, said Martha Jane Hudnall, the marketing consultant for the community.

Lenbrook is one of three Buckhead CCRCs either expanding or under development.


AARP The Magazine has ranked Atlanta among the top five places in which to retire.

"A sophisticated metropolis with southern charm, Atlanta offers abundant volunteer and cultural opportunities," the magazine said. "Retirees also appreciate the wide range of housing options."

Completing the top five are Beacon Hill in Boston; Chandler, Ariz.; Milwaukee, Wis.; and Portland, Ore.

"The places we chose are ahead of the curve in providing services for empty nesters, active retirees, and everyone in between and we're thrilled to recognize them for their efforts," said Steve Slon, editor of AARP The Magazine. "City living may cost a bit more, but urban communities also deliver peak value in the form of culture, work options, mass transit and fitness opportunities, and this year's selections really cover the spectrum."

AARP The Magazine said its selections focus on livable community characteristics in each location including mass-transit systems so residents can drive less, expanded sidewalks to encourage walking, better health care, and a wide range of mixed use housing. These qualities attract members of the 50-plus age group, a segment that spends more than $2.2 trillion on goods and services each year and is expected to grow in size by 32 percent in the next 15 years.

Atlanta Condo News

According to an article in the Atlanta Business Chronicle" Several major condo projects are expected to be completed in 2008, with many appealing to Atlanta's baby boomer population. (See box above for a list of units under construction.)

"A growing trend in the condominium market is developers of new high-end towers offering luxury services to residents that save time, such as auto detailing, pet services and other concierge perks," the report stated. "Target buyers of new construction are primarily retirees and move-up professionals who can afford these services."

According to Haddow & Co., the supply of condos in Atlanta should meet demand for another 31 months. As a result, some condo developers have reversed their plans to apartments, due to local market conditions and the credit squeeze, the report stated.
