The Legacy Willow Bend, the flagship community of nonprofit senior living provider The Legacy Senior Communities, will add 30 mid-size IL units to meet demand in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The expansion will include new luxury apartments and villas, along with 10 luxury flats with design by HKS Architects and Design. The expansion features low-density, condominium-style buildings, according to a press release announcing the addition.
