Nonprofit opens Plano seniors’ community with country homes and apartments
Construction is underway in a Plano community that will have hundreds of seniors’ apartments and cottages.
Forefront Living, a Dallas-based nonprofit owner and developer, this week opened The Outlook at Windhaven, a retirement home development in Plano. The approximately 530,000 square foot gated community will include 153 apartments and 30 country homes for independent living, as well as 32 assisted living apartments and 24 memory support suites.
The community is expected to bring more than 120 new jobs to Plano.
Tim Mallad, CEO of Forefront Living, said in a statement that the community is already over 70% pre-sold. Construction is expected to be completed by 2024.
The community will be on 18.2 acres of creekside property at West Spring Creek Parkway and Windhaven Parkway, near Windhaven Meadows Park. It is part of the redevelopment of the Haggard family farm.
Three Living Architecture designed the project with a material palette that pays homage to the Texas Hill Country.
“The design is inspired by the beautiful grove of trees existing along a small stream on the farmland where we are building,” said Carl Ede, principal and principal designer of Three Living Architecture, in a statement. “Cottages and other units are oriented so that large windows provide views of the tree-lined setting.”
The project team also includes development consultant Greystone Communities, Andres Construction, landscape architect TBG Partners, interior design firm Bridget Bohacz + Associates and civil engineer Kimley-Horn. BC Ziegler provided the funding.
Forefront Living is the parent organization of Presbyterian Village North, Faith Presbyterian Hospice and T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center.
New senior communities are springing up all over North Texas. Irving-based JPI also just opened a senior rental community in Anna.
