Buckner International Announces 'Ventana by Buckner' Senior Living Community in North Dallas

DALLAS, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Buckner International today announced plans for Ventana by Buckner, a 314-apartment North Dallas senior living community scheduled to open in 2018. Ventana by Buckner will further the missions of both Buckner International and Buckner Retirement Services.

Ventana by Buckner, a new senior living community in the heart of Dallas, will feature twin 12-story high rise buildings with 314 distinct apartments, three dining areas, a wellness center and a host of other amenities. The new senior living community will help build upon the mission of Buckner International and Buckner Retirement Services, Inc. to help enrich the lives of senior adults through strong Christian values.

"For more than 135 years, Buckner International has been dedicated to transforming lives and building strong families," said Albert Reyes, president and CEO of Buckner International. "Through Buckner Retirement Services, we're able to enrich the lives of senior adults and their families while they maintain independence and dignity. Ventana by Buckner will build upon our core values by serving senior adults and offering residents opportunities to thrive."

The twin 12-story high-rise buildings, designed by D2 Architecture of Dallas, will measure approximately 450,000 square feet and sit on nearly three acres of land in Dallas' North Park neighborhood, just west of North Central Expressway and across from NorthPark Center. Ventana by Buckner will be a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) with 182 independent living residences, 36 assisted living apartments, 24 memory care apartments, 48 skilled nursing apartments and 24 short-term rehabilitation apartments.

In addition to the 314 apartments, the community will include three dining areas – formal, casual and bistro; a wellness center featuring a fitness room with weights, cardio machines and a host of other amenities, including a pool, aerobics room, chapel, movie theater, roof terraces with gardens, business center, library, day spa, 24-hour security and indoor parking.

Even before its groundbreaking, Ventana by Buckner is hosting informational meetings and accepting deposits for its Priority Club. Priority Club members will have the opportunity to reserve their apartment, have priority choice when selecting their residence, and have input on its design and amenities. Interested parties can schedule a meeting with the Ventana by Buckner team by calling 214-888-2084.                                 

As a Buckner Senior Living community, Ventana by Buckner will focus on enriching the lives of senior adults through strong Christian values. The mission of Buckner International and all of its ministries is to transform the lives of children and enrich the lives of the senior adults they serve. Buckner began serving the senior population shortly after the Buckner Orphans Home was established in 1879. In 1954, Buckner opened its first CCRC in Dallas, providing a more formalized approach to serving seniors.

Throughout Buckner's history, its purpose as an organization has been to meet the needs of vulnerable people "from the beginning to the ending of life." Today, Buckner International is a global faith-based ministry that remains true to its founder R.C. Buckner's vision of serving people of all backgrounds and walks of life.
