BENTONVILLE — The developers of a 48-acre senior living campus near downtown Bentonville will have a "construction commencement" ceremony.
Legacy Village will begin the celebration of the start of construction at 12:30 p.m. today on the property at the corner of John Deshields Boulevard and Northeast J Street.
Named Legacy Village, the planned unit development’s first phase includes construction of 33 garden homes with two parks and a clubhouse. The development will be owned by Northwest Arkansas Senior Services Inc., a nonprofit organization of Rogers and Bentonville residents interested in addressing the housing needs of seniors in the communities, according to a news release.
The garden homes will range from 1,400 to 2,900 square feet and will include private patios and two-car garages.
The future phases include cooperative and independent apartments, an assisted-living facility with a wing for Alzheimer’s patients, a 120-bed nursing-care center and a future development area where the housing will be determined by market demand, according to preliminary plans.
