Sterling Estates Garners Design Awards for Senior Housing
West Cobb Recognized for Independent Living, Stand Alone Memory Care

Marietta GA (January 6, 2020) – Sterling Estates of West Cobb was recognized in two categories in the recent sixth annual Senior Housing News (SHN) Architecture & Design Awards. The senior living community was awarded second place in both the Independent Living and Stand Alone Memory Care categories.

The Senior Housing News Architecture & Design Awards recognize cutting-edge design, excellence and innovation in senior living, celebrating unique projects and companies that are improving the lives of seniors throughout the U.S. The winning communities are judged based on design and aesthetics; community integration; amenities; and lifestyle and wellness. A detailed description of judging criteria can be found at

“We are honored to have our West Cobb development recognized along with top senior communities from around the world,” said Sterling Estates Managing Partner Mike Brown. “This award is testament to our success in providing positive and meaningful experiences to those living in our community, whether as an independent resident or in our Memory Care Community.”

Sterling Estates of West Cobb is located at 3165 Dallas Highway in Marietta. The community has independent living cottages, garden homes and apartment homes (both independent and assisted living) in a classic neighborhood setting with a large Wellness Center, indoor heated pool, a full service Clubhouse and other gourmet dining, active social calendar, walking paths, a large resident garden, and beautifully landscaped courtyards for complete resident enjoyment. In June 2019, West Cobb opened a new Memory Care Community, The Grande, designed by Rule Joy Trammell & Rubio in consultation with Dr. John Zeisel of the Hearthstone Institute. The Grande is one of only twenty memory care facilities in the country utilizing the ‘I’m Still Here’ philosophy of memory care, a unique evidence-based daily engagement approach to those with cognitive challenges.

About Sterling Estates
We build with more than bricks and mortar – we build Sterling Estates senior living communities with a commitment to provide the finest lifestyle, services and care for our residents.

Each of our communities offers exceptional living accommodations, myriad opportunities for continued happiness, and a warm, friendly environment conducive to making new friends and enjoying family. At each of our communities, we uphold what we feel are life’s most important values: service, faith, dependability, and the one special feeling that everyone in the world holds for the members of their families – hope.

Hope is the common thread that, throughout the ages, has inspired people to pursue the best qualities of life. Family and hope–those are the qualities that make a life “Sterling.”
