Northside Hospital Forsyth in Cumming, Ga., will soon have an eight-story hotel and conference center, as well as a multifamily housing development, designed to provide patient families a place to stay and lure more millennial workers to the area, according to Forsyth County News.

The hotel and housing development are being planned "in close consultation with Northside," according to the report.

The housing development would include 336 apartments adjacent to the hospital and create a "pedestrian-oriented environment" with room for commercial space. It would also include a "luxury clubhouse" and fitness area, swimming pool and outdoor deck, according to the report.

Marietta, Ga.-based Lynwood Development Group presented the plans to the city council this week. Atlanta-based architecture firm Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates is designing the hotel.
