Wildlight is adding senior housing to its portfolio of residential, commercial and industrial properties in Nassau County.

The 16-acre Fellowship at Wildlight will be a senior housing community with 125 independent living units, 48 assisted living units, 24 memory care units and six cottages. It falls under the 2,900-acre first phase of the Wildlight’s development, a press release said.

The Fellowship at Wildlight is being developed by The Fellowship Family and Ambling Property Investments, both of which are based in Georgia. The Fellowship Family operates five Georgia senior living complexes and one complex in Sebring. England-Thims & Miller, Stewart & Conners Architects, Niles Bolton Interiors and Elkins Construction have been selected for project design and construction. 

Work at the site will begin in 2023 with an expected completion by 2025. Pre-leasing will begin in 2024.

“Our goal at Wildlight is to create an extraordinary sense of place for community residents and families in every life phase,” Wildlight Vice President Wes Hinton said. “The addition of Fellowship at Wildlight will bring a new sanctuary for seniors with a range of living options and support services available, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with the family-owned Fellowship Family to offer this level of care.”

There are about 2,000 homes currently under development at Wildlight. The addition of 1.5 million square feet of industrial space was announced last month.
