Calder Woods, a not-for-profit Buckner Retirement Services, broke ground last week on a $25.9 million, 80,000–square-foot expansion and 51,000-square-foot remodel of the senior living community.

Construction begins this month, and the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. Renovations include adding a private short-term rehab space, and a gym, indoor pool, bistro and additional activity spaces to the independent living common areas. Green House Homes also will be available for long-term care residents.

Buckner Retirement Services is a division of Buckner International. Calder Woods opened its doors in October of 2000 and is the only continuing care retirement community in Beaumont, TX.
