Jewish-Sponsored Retirement Community Nears Completion

Construction is well underway on The Legacy Midtown Park, The Legacy Senior Communities’ Jewish-sponsored rental continuing care retirement community.

Recently, the organization celebrated a topping-off of the community’s health care center, which is scheduled to open its doors in summer 2020.

The first floor for the Assisted and Memory Care building was placed following the Fourth of July holiday and sources said they anticipate a new floor being poured in each building every 10 days.

The Legacy Senior Communities broke ground on the $175 million development last summer.

Following the opening of the healthcare center next summer, the assisted living and memory care building is anticipated to open shortly after, followed by independent living in the first quarter of 2021.

Located on 10 acres in the Midtown Park development, The Legacy Midtown Park will be the only Jewish-sponsored rental retirement community in Dallas.

The urban and contemporary retirement community will be part of the Midtown Park development in North Dallas between Meadow Road and Royal Lane near North Central Expressway.

The nonprofit organization says the new community is a symbol of its commitment to Dallas-area Jewish seniors and their families, and it represents the next step in the organization’s 65-year history of providing vibrant lifestyles and high-quality care for seniors.

The community will have 184 independent living apartments and the highest quality of care in 51 assisted living apartments, 36 memory care residences, and 54 suites for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care.

The center also will be equipped with multiple dining options including kosher kitchens, a full-service pub with a billiards table, a golf simulator, underground parking, fully-equipped fitness, aerobics studio, and aquatic center, as well as many other cutting-edge amenities.

“As an organization, we strive to ensure that our services allow us to best serve Jewish seniors and their families,” said Melissa Orth, president and CEO of The Legacy Senior Communities. “Through The Legacy Midtown Park, we are creating an environment where residents can thrive with state-of-the-art resources, innovative
programming, and a deep commitment to Jewish seniors and their families.”

Construction for the project is being overseen by The Belaire Group, which serves as the project’s Owner’s Representative.

The Belaire Group has provided consulting services for The Legacy Senior Communities since the initial planning phase in 2014.

The project team for The Legacy Midtown Park also consists of Brian Schiff & Associates (development consultant), StudioSix5 (interior designers), D2 Architecture, and Talley Associates (landscape architects), who are all working to make The Legacy Midtown Park a reality.
