A $12.5 million project is underway to build a senior living center on the former campus of Saint James School in Montgomery.
Crews are demolishing an old gym at 2005 N. Country Club Drive to make way for the new development. The campus off Carter Hill Road in midtown was used by the school starting in the 1970s before Saint James moved to its current location on Vaughn Road.
“There’s an aging population of seniors. We saw a need for affordable housing there,” said Tom Champion, an executive with co-developer Gulf Coast Housing Partnership.
Called Country Club Estates, the project will feature 62 units of “affordable independent living” for people 55 and older, spread over a 67,000-square-foot, two-story building.
In Montgomery County, 800 rural acres will soon be home to a massive 350,000-panel solar array.
The project, a partnership between local utility company Alabama Municipal Electric Authority and Lightsource BP, will bring a large-scale, utility-sized solar development to the River Region. Utility leaders say several recent factors have made solar power a realistic energy source, and they expect others to follow suit shortly.
