KINGSPORT, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2015) -- Asbury Place Kingsport broke ground this week on its new clubhouse, which officials say will be the centerpiece of a $1.4 million campus enhancement project.

Marge Shonnard, chief operating officer at Asbury, said the 1,900-square-foot clubhouse will be two stories and include space for meetings and social gatherings, a fitness center with exercise equipment designed for people 55 and older and a group fitness room for dance, yoga and aerobic classes.

Shonnard said the fitness room will have a computer system that residents can use to track and monitor their fitness progress.

Construction on the clubhouse is expected to begin within the next two weeks and take about nine months to complete.
