A new senior lifestyle apartment community, owned by Civitas Senior Living LLC, will be breaking ground in Austin. Ledgestone Senior Living will offer not only independent and assisted living apartments, but also a memory care cottage; the complex will enter the construction phase in June 2015, becoming the seventh property in the company’s portfolio.

Trepex Construction Inc. will be the general contractor, with its founder Brent Hammond, a Dripping Springs area local resident, leading the construction team. Once finalized, the managing responsibilities will be handled by Civitas, under the leadership of Wayne and Misti Powell, the president & CEO and vice president of clinical services respectively.

The development’s architectural plan includes 120 independent senior lifestyle apartments, approximately 60 assisted living studios and one-bedroom units, and 10 private and semi-private memory care units. The community’s amenities will include a pool, gym, spa, wellness center, walking trails, club house, and landscaped grounds. The independent units will feature balconies, island kitchens, and several floor plans of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments with walk-in closets.

Ledgestone Senior Living will be privately owned. “Our small company platform allows us to provide large company services with the attention to detail of a local owner,” said Wayne Powell, President of Civitas Senior Living.
