Thrive at Brow Wood
Thrive at Brow Wood has begun the process of hiring a director and a person responsible for community relations. One of the two-bedroom townhomes will serve as an office, and Thrive expects to open that office next month. The other three townhomes will be available for occupants by December 1, when all landscaping is complete and the main road has its final coat. The townhomes are unfurnished but come with all appliances. Monthly rental will include all utilities, property taxes and insurance, cable, landscaping, and garbage collection. There is no housekeeping, health care, renter’s insurance, or food service. Thrive expects that their office in the townhome will be needed until some point early in 2016 when the State issues a certificate of occupancy for the Assisted Living Facility.
Once Thrive’s personnel are on the site, they will have the monthly lease agreements for the Townhomes and for Assisted Living or Memory Care. Each lease must be accompanied by a non-refundable deposit. Thrive has the Independent Living rate and expects to have rates for assisted living and memory care next month.
Brow Wood is maintaining a list of people who would like to be contacted when Thrive’s director is on the job. If you would like to be on this list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and specify whether your interest is for the Townhome or Assisted Living or Memory care.
Four homes are finishing up. As of today, three of the four are already occupied. Three or four homes are getting ready to start.
A couple from Savannah is building a house on Brow-view lot 4. Less than four weeks after breaking ground, the house is already under roof.
A couple from Wisconsin has signed a contract and staked out their lot, Brow lot 1, the northern-most lot. Construction should begin in a few weeks.
As soon at the site work on the Wisconsin house is done, site work will begin on Brow lot 22 for a couple from Charlotte.
There is a possibility, subject to financing, that another model home may soon be going up on one of the Brow-view lots.
Thanks to the great work of some of the homeowners and some family members and Covenant College students, the Gazebo at the pond is complete except for painting the deck. The Gazebo was designed by Amish and came as a kit. The pond is really looking great; the fish are growing. They hungrily wait for the automatic feeder that goes off every day at 5:30. At the rate they are growing, we will be able to fish by next spring.

Monthly Rental Woodland Side Update
What a difference a month makes! Curbs and sidewalks are in. The entrance is paved. Landscaping has begun. The four monthly rental two-bedroom townhomes are finished—just waiting for the first occupants. One townhome will be used as a model and one will be used for an office until the main building is open later this year. If you are interested, please send an email to email@example.com, so we can add you to the list of people who would like to be contacted regarding availability and rate. Thrive at Brow Wood will contact you when their community relations person arrives. You can see more pictures at www.facebook.com/thriveatbrowwood
Independent Living Brow Side Update
Another house is going up on a Brow-view lot. We are excited to welcome this couple moving from Savannah to Brow Wood.
Now that the community garden and pavilion are finished, the pond is becoming the focus of the third community gathering place. One of the homeowners built a swing bench, which is facing a soon-to-be-built gazebo on the opposite side, covering the concrete outlet.

If you are a prospect, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Depending mainly on weather, it takes about 6-9 months to build a pre-designed home.

Chattanooga is ranked as one of the top retirement destinations in the country, and being next to a college makes Brow Wood an even more desirable destination.

Thrive at Brow Wood
Thrive at Brow Wood is the name of the new assisted living facility with memory care that is under construction at Brow Wood. There are actually two buildings. The larger one is a full service facility that will serve three meals a day as part of other health services. The second smaller building has four two-bedroom monthly rental townhomes. In August, if not sooner, Thrive will open two of the townhomes, one as a model and one as an office. Their customer service representative will then be able to answer the many questions (types of rooms, rates, and services) we are currently getting. Thrive Assisted Living expects to be open by Christmas.
On the brow side of Scenic Highway, in August four new homes will be finishing up and ready for the owners to move in. Construction on another home begins this week, and plans for three more homes are nearly complete. The community areas, the pavilion, the pond, and the community garden (with fresh blueberries) are all attracting many visitors, which we welcome. We are working on plans for a gazebo at the fishing pond, which is now stocked.
Starting with this email, we are beginning to be more active in posting pictures so everyone can see the progress. We are especially aware that many are interested because of family members that live out of town, and the easiest way for them to keep up and see pictures is by clicking this link:
Many cars drive through every day. We are always happy to have visitors at Brow Wood and are excited that we now have regulars who enjoy the peaceful one-mile walk on Brow Wood Lane. The more adventurous are reaching Brow Wood through trails in the woods behind Thrive at Brow Wood that lead to Covenant College and beyond.
