Senior Quality Lifestyles Corporation broke ground this month on a $36 million expansion and renovation project at its original continuing care retirement community, Edgemere, located in Dallas, Texas.

The project’s first phase will bring a 6,000-square-foot performing arts center to Edgemere’s center courtyard. This performing arts center will feature a bar and lounge, arched ceilings with exposed wooden beams, and a stage for speakers and performances. Phase I also includes renovation of two of Edgemere’s dining venues.

Phase II will add eight assisted living units, 12 memory support suites and 15 private skilled nursing rooms to Edgemere’s health center — The Plaza. This second phase will also create updated courtyard and dining spaces, as well as additional parking.

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2018. Greystone is serving as development consultant, in addition to its role as management and marketing consultant at Edgemere.
