Iris at Park Pointe completed

Posted on by

Located on the former Meriwether Homes housing project, this is the second phase of the redevelopment of the site.

The first phase was the Oaks at Park Pointe, an 84-unit townhome development which opened in 2016.

Iris at Park Pointe is an 85-unit senior community development at 859 Park Pointe Drive in Griffin, between the Oaks at Park Pointe and the Griffin Police Department.

The $10 million development encompasses over 78,000-square feet of residential space in one three-floor building, offering 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units, with a grand community room, indoor arts and crafts space, wellness and fitness center, a gazebo park, and more.

Like the Oaks at Park Pointe, the senior community is also certified as an “Earthcraft” energy efficient community.

Griffin Housing Authority CEO Bob Dull said residents will be moving in next month and the building is 100 percent rented already.

“We’re excited,” Dull said. “It’s a beautiful site.”

Capstone Building Corporation served as the general contractor, with Pennrose Properties, LLC of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the developer and Kitchen & Associates as the architect.

“We are very excited to announce the completion of this modern senior community in Griffin, Georgia,” Capstone Building Corporation President & Chief Executive Officer Jay Chapman said in a press release. “The many unique assets of this development — including the indoor arts and crafts space and the energy efficient feature, make this senior community a special place to live.”

Dull said a grand opening celebration is being planned but a date has not been sent. Work continues on the Housing Authority’s next public/private partnership by City Park, which is the third phase of the redevelopment in the former Meriwether Homes area.

That effort begin with the Oaks at Park Pointe as the first phase and Iris at Park Pointe is the second phase. The next phase extends into the surrounding are
