Presbyterian Village North (PVN), a premier nonprofit senior living community, is pleased to announce a new expansion project is underway. While still in the early planning stages, the community plans to add a new independent living building featuring 102 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes, some with lake views. Seniors joining the Priority Program will have first pick of units with lake views. Bryan Cooper, executive director of Presbyterian Village North, made the announcement.

“We are thrilled about the opportunity to continue PVN’s legacy and look forward to eventually welcoming new residents into our family-like community,” said Cooper. “We received a great response from the 2016 expansion, and most of those residences are now occupied. With this new expansion, we seek to address more market demands by providing senior housing that meets the desires and needs of today’s seniors.”

The new building will take the place of an older, outdated building. It will be positioned over an underground parking garage and will connect to the Corrigan Building, the main hub of the campus which houses many of the amenities and much of the residential activity. Amenities accessible through the Corrigan Building include a café, beauty salon with spa and massage area, onsite doctor’s clinic, game room, auditorium, mailroom, spiritual life services, library, wellness center and a pool. The new building will feature signature designs and contemporary finishes evocative of current multifamily developments. Each residence will come complete with full kitchens and their own washers and dryers. The pet-friendly building is near PVN’s dog park. In addition, PVN plans to enhance commons areas.

“The goal of the project is to stay at the forefront of industry trends and to give our community a competitive edge over other senior housing providers in the area,” said Cooper. “We have welcomed many new faces these last two years since the completion of the previous expansion, and we look forward to having many more Dallas-area seniors join us in the years to come. I had the privilege of speaking with one of our newest residents who spent three years searching for the best senior living community. He described PVN as ‘an oasis amongst the chaos,’ indicating that our campus was the perfect place for serenity within a large metropolitan city like Dallas. We sit on 66 lush acres, and we are excited for this opportunity to serve more seniors in the Dallas area.”

Construction is expected to start in the first quarter of 2020, and the community anticipates it will begin move-ins in 2021. Currently, PVN is conducting a Priority Program Seminars to provide information about the project and what it will offer.
