$15 million senior living facility planned for Flower Mound

Avanti Senior Living, a developer and operator of senior living communities based in The Woodlands, will build a $15 million, 77,000-square-foot assisted living and memory care community in Flower Mound. The company plans to break ground on Avanti at Flower Mound in January, and anticipates the first of 90 residents in early spring 2016. The new senior community is located north of Cross Timbers Road and Long Prairie Road. Avanti is partnering with architects at PRDG, interior designers at studioSIX5, and brokers and developers at Cypressbrook Company to make the community a reality.

“We are excited to pioneer a whole new concept for assisted living and memory care by combining technology, quality care and innovative design,” said Avanti co-founder and CEO Tim Hekker. “Our goal is to build and manage a community where residents live with independence, choice and endless opportunities to socialize.” Amenities in the community will include a state-of-the-art wellness center with ballet bar and fitness equipment; a theater; a full-service salon and spa; and an art studio with a stone wall for the residents to display artwork. The community will provide 50 assisted living and 40 memory care suites. One- and two-bedroom suites will feature wood flooring, expansive windows, walk-in closets, oversized showers, stone countertops and upgraded finishing on plumbing and appliances. In addition, RFID keyless entry will allow residents to enter and exit their suites without worrying about carrying their keys. Avanti Senior Living was launched in 2013. The company plans to initially build its communities in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to a news release.
