Atlanta-based senior living innovator Galerie Living recently opened its highly anticipated senior living community, Corso Atlanta. The state-of-the-art community layers human-scale design with technology to maximize flexibility, independence, and wellbeing for residents and their families.
“Today’s senior living communities must be high-touch, high-tech, and focused on flexibility,” said Tim Gary, Founder and CEO of Galerie Living. “We’re excited to launch the Corso wellness concept here in Atlanta and look forward to reaching new markets.”
Located in Atlanta’s West Paces/Northside neighborhood at 3200 Howell Mill Road NW, Corso Atlanta is now leasing city homes, independent living, assisted living, and memory care homes. Residents’ monthly lease includes complimentary access to the community’s 12+ dining and entertainment venues, hosted social events, transportation, and more while “behind the scenes” wellness services can be discretely added to any unit should care needs arise. The complexity of Corso’s design, scale, and service not only demonstrates Galerie’s commitment to excellence but the company’s dedication to driving the senior living industry forward.
Galerie Living is quickly scaling to meet the wants and needs of the growing senior population. With all Baby Boomers reaching 65+ by 2030, modern senior living is a pressing need for these 73 million Boomers and their families. Corso’s completion is a milestone for Galerie Living and for the future of senior living.
Galerie’s emphasis on connection and flexibility is evident throughout Corso Atlanta’s lifestyle, care, and financial models. The campus showcases local favorites loved by residents and guests of all ages including a second Lucy’s Market location, Sugarcoat Nail & Beauty Bar, and onsite flower boutique, Flowers of Giverny. Corso’s intentionally designed dining and entertainment venues keep seniors at the center of social connection. Should family members move due to changing jobs or circumstances, Corso’s leasing model provides a hassle-free move-out process, giving seniors the flexibility to easily relocate with loved ones.
“The need for senior living communities that proactively promote wellbeing and keep residents close to families has never been greater,” Gary said. “We built flexibility into every aspect of Corso because we want our residents to stay connected with what and who they love. Social connection, especially with loved ones, is as critical to healthy living as medicine.”
Galerie Living’s in-house design, operations, and technology teams have worked to build moments of “unexpected happiness” throughout Corso’s 500,000 square feet of residential and common space. The team recognizes the multifaceted approach between infrastructure, programming, and technology as critical to building proactive wellness environments.
This balance of form and function is largely based on human-scale design principles. Human-scale architecture focuses on creating people-centered environments that foster positive interaction and connection. Corso’s human-led architecture and programming is informed by decades of developing, owning, and operating communities for seniors. The minds behind Corso understand that the way people interact with spaces often shifts with age. Senior Living Consultant Kim Linder has helped many seniors overcome the fear that downsizing their home means downsizing their quality of life.
“When I’m working with seniors planning for their next home, I ask them to consider two questions: ‘Does this add value to my life?’ and ‘What do I want my life to look like now and when I need care?’ Searching for a senior living community requires different considerations than searching for a typical home. It’s less about square footage and more about the services, experiences and relationships improving your everyday life.”
While the community is filling up fast, Linder and the entire Corso Atlanta team are eager to help Atlanta’s seniors and families plan for a home that fits their wants and needs. To schedule a tour or learn more about Corso Atlanta, visit CorsoAtlanta.com or call (404) 891-9190.
