An Ooltewah development company plans to build a $14 million retirement community on Shallowford Road that will include an assisted living facility, 20 patio homes and a stand-alone office building.

The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency gave Independent Healthcare Properties initial approval for the plan Monday. The proposed development will sit on an almost 10-acre plot at 7721 Shallowford Road.

Independent Healthcare Properties already operates Morning Pointe of Chattanooga just across the road from the proposed development, and the company plans to move that facility to the new site.

The current Morning Pointe of Chattanooga location will then be used solely for Alzheimer's patients and will be called The Lantern at Morning Pointe.
