Whiting-Turner, a national construction company with offices in Dallas since 1996, serves as the lead contractor for the project. The community, designed by Dallas-based D2 Architecture, includes two 12-story towers offering sweeping views of the Dallas skyline.
- 189 independent living apartment homes.
- 38 assisted living apartment homes.
- 26 specialized memory care suites.
- 48 skilled nursing accommodations.
- 24 rehabilitation accommodations.
- Multiple common areas and amenities, including several dining venues, a wellness center with an indoor pool and a Grand Hall multi-purpose space.
“We’re extremely pleased with the response from the community,” said Charlie Wilson, senior vice president for Buckner Retirement Services. “There is a real excitement about Ventana from our future residents about reaching our goal for deposits.”
A fully-staffed Information Center, featuring a 3-D model of the buildings, video virtual tour, full renderings, and site and floor plans is open in One Lincoln Park Building, overlooking the 3-acre property where Ventana will be built. The Information Center is in Suite 725 at 8401 North Central Expressway. The phone number is 214-234-1035.
