Edgemere celebrates expansion

Edgemere in Dallas is beginning a $36 million renovation that will include skilled nursing rooms.

The community's project will add up to 40 new full-time jobs to the economy, the company said.

In the first phase, there will be the addition of a performing arts center in the center courtyard, which will include a bar and lounge. Dining venues will be renovated.

There are plans to add eight new assisted living apartment homes, 12 new memory support suites and 15 new skilled nursing private suites. An underground parking garage also is scheduled.
