A Faith-based nonprofit developer called Forefront Living seeks approval from Plano City Planning Officials for it's proposed $180 million senior community in West Plano. The proposed community, now going by the name “The Outlook at Windhaven", would accommodate up to 190 independent living residences and include an upscale 160-unit apartment building with underground parking and 30 cottages.
The community is designed for seniors who want “a vibrant, exciting lifestyle and enjoy living in well-appointed homes,” Mallad said in an interview with the Dallas Business Journal. He called the location “ideal for Forefront Living and for Plano. We’ve been on a journey for the better part of three years looking for a site in Plano,” Mallad said. “If you could have a bull’s eye on the location we wanted to go, it would be there, and we were able to secure it. For us, it’s a realization of a lot of planning and a lot of work.”

The Outlook at Windhaven will also have a 64-unit building for assisted living and memory care services. The campus is planned with a clubhouse that includes a dining hall, fitness center, entertainment area, and other amenities. The developers are seeking zoning approvals for the project. Construction isn’t scheduled to start until late 2022.

Until Forefront living gets the go-ahead from Plano City Officials, nothing is set in stone. As exciting and beneficial as a new senior living facility sounds for the community, everything is still in the planning stage until permits are granted and construction starts, and with construction expected to start two years from now, this proposed upscale facility is still a tentative thing to look forward to in 2022.
