The Legacy Senior Communities, a not-for-profit charitable organization, officially broke ground on The Legacy Midtown Park rental continuing care retirement community in Dallas.
Construction on the entire community will officially start next month. The community expects to begin opening Fall 2019 with long-term care and short-term rehab, and independent living and other levels of care will open in 2020.
The organization celebrated the milestone with board members, donors and invited guests. Once completed, the total project cost of The Legacy Midtown Park will be $175 million, and will create approximately 350 jobs.
The community will have 184 independent living apartments, the highest quality of care in 50 assisted living apartments, 36 memory care residences and 54 suites for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care.
“A community is judged by the way it cares for its elders, and it is our responsibility to build a campus that provides a wonderful lifestyle, offers the highest quality of care and meets the needs of the community,” said Carol Aaron, co-chair of the capital campaign committee and chair of the board of directors of The Legacy Midtown Park. “I am thrilled to reach this historic moment in our organization’s history, and I want to personally thank all of our donors who stepped up to make this community a reality.”
