MCKINNEY, Texas — Architecture firm Three has completed design and started construction of Touchmark at Emerald Lake, a seniors housing community in the northern Dallas suburb of McKinney.
Located on 81 acres, the community will be built in two phases. The first phase will feature 149 independent living apartments, six casitas (duplex residences), 84 assisted living and 32 memory care residences. Thirty-two of the assisted living homes will be studios offering a smaller neighborhood environment and higher resident-to-staff ratio.
A future phase will add a health and fitness center with pool, spa, salon and dining along with more homes, bringing the retirement community’s total number of units to more than 400.
The first phase is scheduled for completion in 2023.
The project team includes Andres Construction as general contractor, interior design by StudioSIX5, Kimley-Horn as the civil engineer, and landscapes design by Talley Associates. Touchmark project executive Mike Harral will manage the development and construction.
