Legacy At Willow Bend In North Texas Receives Multifamily Architecture Award

The Dream Home Awards recently bestowed the Best in Multi-Family Living — Southern United States Award to DiMella Shaffer, architect of the Legacy at Willow Bend.  The Legacy at Willow Bend, Plano, Texas’s first and only life care retirement community, is situated on a 28-acre site and offers resort-style services and amenities for active, independent seniors, as well as all levels of health care services on-site.  The community features 103 independent living apartment homes, 12 custom independent living villas, 40 assisted living apartment homes, 18 memory support suites, and 60 private skilled healthcare suites.


“Building an award-winning senior living community requires an immense amount of foresight, care, and collaboration among everyone involved with the project,” said Michael Ellentuck, president of The Legacy Senior Communities, Inc. “Our primary goal when looking for an architect to design The Legacy was to provide our members with an environment that inspired new heights of growth and self-discovery, and we feel that Dimella Shaffer more than exceeded those ambitions.”
