On Tuesday, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new assisted living facility in Maurice.
The Woodbriar Southern Style Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility officially broke ground at their new location on East Etienne Street and Hwy 167.
The 44,000 square foot assisted living community will consist of 36 one-bedroom apartments and 10 Memory Care apartments. Woodbriar says that apartments will be equipped with the latest technology complimentary to each resident.
The facility will also include a private library, stocked fishing pond, putting green and fully staffed beauty and barber shops.
Officials estimate that the project will be completed between August and October 2020 and cost $6.4 million.
