Dogwood Forest of Grayson officially opened its doors Thursday—the model room doors that is. The community scheduled to open in summer 2017, hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of its community model rooms. Visitors can now get a first look at the design aesthetic of the Dogwood Forest of Grayson community. The event brought out many in the Gwinnett business community along with local residents eager to get a first glimpse of the long-awaited project.
Grayson Mayor Allison Wilkerson and members of city council were attendance. The Greater Eastside Chamber of Commerce in Gwinnett hosted the ribbon cutting ceremony for the two apartments designed to give both genders design ideas. One of the apartments showcased a softer aesthetic with lighter colors and tasteful florals—while the other designed with a more masculine aesthetic and richer hues.
Chief Operating Officer for Dogwood Forest, Vickie Curl anticipation about the new senior community was conveyed during ceremony remarks.
“We are excited not only for what we are building here, but we are excited because we are now part of your community.” Curl said. The model rooms highlight one of the primary focuses for the Dogwood Forest brand whose mantra circles around community environment.
