Senior living apartments under construction in Leland area | WilmingtonBiz – Greater Wilmington Business Journal

Construction on a senior living development in the Leland area is underway and expected to be complete later this year, possibly by September.

Developer Bobby Harrelson and Abe Walston, a Wilmington doctor, have partnered with Kernersville-based Ridge Care Senior Living on Arbor Landing at Compass Pointe, a project adjacent to the master-planned community of Compass Pointe, according to a news release.

The community will include 100 one- and two-bedroom apartments, at monthly rental rates, with full kitchens and screened-in balconies, the release stated.

Assisted living services will be provided by an on-site home care partner, according to the release, allowing residents to add assistance as needed.

Amenities include dining rooms, resident lounges, a fitness studio and a movie theater.

“When we decided to venture into the senior living arena, we knew that it would be critical to find the right partner,” said Harrelson, developer of Compass Pointe, in the release. “After much searching, we determined that Ridge Care was who we wanted to be associated with because they know and care about seniors.”

Arbor Landing at Compass Pointe is located at Compass Pointe’s west entrance at 2771 Compass Pointe South Wynd NE in Leland, according to the release.

The development is Ridge Care’s third community in the Wilmington area; the others are in Ocean Isle Beach and Hampstead.

In March, Liberty Senior Living, a division of Wilmington-based Liberty Healthcare, announced its plans to build rental apartments and townhomes for active seniors at Brunswick Forest.
