Senior Housing News named Ventana by Buckner the winner in the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) category of their design awards program. The Senior Housing News Architecture & Design Awards recognize cutting-edge design, excellence and innovation in senior living. This 6th annual awards contest celebrates unique projects and companies that are improving the lives of seniors through innovative design.
Ventana by Buckner is a premier Life Plan Community situated at the intersection of two of Dallas’ most established thoroughfares. Just north of downtown, Ventana’s twin towers of floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer 360-degree views of the Dallas skyline and surrounding metropolitan area. Each of the two 12-story towers has a modest, yet noticeable, 15-degree bend at their center axes and are positioned as gracefully as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers on Ventana’s compact urban site—maximizing panoramic views.
At its core, the lower five levels of Ventana’s twin towers are linked and share varying levels of living and amenities for its Members. One story of Ventana is dedicated to rehabilitation, two stories are devoted to small house model skilled nursing care and assisted living care, memory support and Alzheimer’s care households are apportioned to the fifth level’s north tower, and Ventana’s remaining floors house independent living residences and amenities. Amenities include a salon and spa, a grand hall for small and large gatherings, an indoor pool and jacuzzi room, outdoor cooking and living areas, wellness yoga and fitness rooms, a rooftop terrace with private patios, green space and raised planters for Member gardeners, putting green, dog park, a sky lounge at the 12th story, and five different culinary venues offering a variety of dining and menu choices.
