McShane Starts Construction of 198-Unit Active Adult Community in Metro Atlanta

COVINGTON, Ga. — McShane Construction Co. has started work on Legends of Covington, a 198-unit active adult community in the Atlanta suburb of Covington.

The four-story property sits on 13 acres and is scheduled for completion in February 2021.

“By the end of the year, the entire baby boomer generation will fall into the 55-plus category,” says Scott Hoppa, senior vice president of McShane’s Southeast region. “As this generation makes up nearly 40 percent of the nation’s population, demand for senior living residences is going to continue to rise, making Legends of Covington a valuable asset for the city.”

Dominium hired McShane during the permitting stage of the project, enabling the contractor to go through final design meetings and pricing before beginning construction.

The architect of record for Legends of Covington is Martin Riley Associates.
