PinPoint Commercial, LP, Outer Marker Properties, LLC (“Outer Marker”), and FTC Architects announced the upcoming ground breaking of The Legacy at Georgetown, a 95,000 sq. ft. assisted living and memory care facility in Georgetown, Texas.
With an anticipated opening for the spring of 2012, the Legacy at Georgetown will be positioned on approximately 4.5 acres of land and is designed to contain 120 total units, with approximately 80 units dedicated to assisted living and 40 units devoted to memory care.
“We have been scouting several markets for quite some time and honestly believe this is one of the best locations we have ever discovered,” described Charles Turner, Principal of PinPoint Commercial. “Our ability to meet the needs of Sun City residents and other surrounding communities, as well as partner with local medical providers, offers us an unprecedented opportunity.”
The expansive property of The Legacy lends itself beautifully to walking trails which have been designed along two enclosed courtyards. The interior layouts incorporate the latest trends in the industry—elegant, yet still comfortably designed for today’s generation of seniors.
“Technology was central to our design of The Legacy at Georgetown, both in amenities offered to residents and in the care provisions we are implementing,” explained Jeramy Ragsdale, co-founder of Outer Marker Properties. “Residents will have access to technology stations, allowing them to communicate with loved ones via easy-to-use, web cam computers.”
The Legacy’s memory care suites will be equipped with unobtrusive monitoring technology such as motion sensors and bed weight sensors, both of which allow residents to be cared for comprehensively while also respecting their privacy.
Outer Marker’s management team has extensive experience in managing assisted living and memory care facilities throughout the Southeast. As it relates to memory care facilities specifically, they have partnered with local architectural firm, FTC Architects and consulted with notable researchers regarding design components proven beneficial in improving quality of life and stimulating cognitive activity in residents.
“Many of our design influences can be traced back to years of research and consultation with leaders in senior health,” added Francisco Choi, founder of FTC architects. “It also helps that my wife, Maryann Choi, is one of the leading geriatricians in the state of Texas. Her influence on this project has been invaluable. The design elements of The Legacy will showcase the next evolution in the care of seniors and those struggling with memory impairment.”
The momentum for this development was facilitated in large part by the City of Georgetown itself. In recent months, The Legacy team has worked diligently with various departments in the City office to keep this project on its positive trajectory.
“I want to convey my utmost appreciation to the City of Georgetown for all of their efforts on this project,” expressed Mr. Turner. “We are grateful for the involvement of Mark Thomas in the Economic Development Office, Mayor George Garver, as well as the participation from the City Council Members and the Engineering and Planning Departments. Their steadfast work had helped make The Legacy at Georgetown a reality,” Mr. Turner added. “As an out-of-town developer, it is refreshing to work with a city that sincerely believes in facilitating responsible growth.”
