Caddis to Develop Heartis MidCities

Caddis setting a new standard with fifth Dallas/Fort Worth community

About a month after the grand opening of Heartis® Arlington, three months after opening its popular Heartis Eagle Mountain community and a year after the grand opening of Heartis Cleburne, Caddis is again setting a new standard for senior living in Dallas/Fort Worth. Caddis is developing its fifth senior living community near the metroplex and its 12th in Texas – Heartis MidCities.

The 178-unit, 178,530 square foot Heartis MidCities independent living, assisted living and memory care residence is being built on the northeast corner of Highway 121 and Bedford Road in Bedford, about 14 miles northeast of Fort Worth. The community, which will offer a host of first-class amenities, is expected to be completed in winter 2017.

In August, Caddis held a grand opening of the 89-bed, 67,000 square foot Heartis Arlington senior community, which features a bistro, Internet café, large fitness center and other amenities. In addition, in May, Caddis completed the development of a new Heartis senior residence in Eagle Mountain, a suburb on the north side of Fort Worth. That assisted living and memory care community is 61,125 square feet, offers 89 beds, and is close to Eagle Mountain Lake.

Also, in October 2015 Caddis opened the 89-bed, 61,125 square foot Heartis Cleburne, the company’s second high-end senior community under the Heartis brand name. Caddis’ first senior community was Orchard Park of Murphy located near Plano, Texas.

“All of Caddis’ senior living properties near Dallas/Fort Worth have been well received and are meeting an important need for new senior living options in the DFW area,” says Caddis CEO Jason Signor. “We are now raising the bar again in the Mid-Cities, developing another much-needed, amenity- and feature-rich senior community that will really appeal to local residents. Heartis MidCities will be a beautiful, vibrant community with all of the comforts of home and a supportive, caring staff.”

Katie Csobaji, Caddis Senior Vice President of Senior Living, notes, “For every Heartis community, we carefully choose the best locations in the country. Bedford is a beautiful city with thriving retail and healthcare sectors, including HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital and Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital which are near the new community. Heartis MidCities also will be easy to access from nearby Highway 121. In addition to the attractive and convenient location, we want prospective residents and their families to know that Heartis MidCities will be a fun, inviting community where seniors can live life to the fullest.”

Heartis MidCities will offer a wide variety of amenities, including large, secured courtyards; outdoor walking paths; beautifully landscaped grounds; game and activity rooms; a beauty and barber shop; relaxing common areas; a large dining room offering delicious, chef-prepared meals; stimulating daily social and recreational activities; and luxurious finishes. Ongoing services include 24-hour emergency call system, housekeeping and laundry services and assistance with the activities of daily living.

The residence will be managed by Frontier Management, a senior living operations management company headquartered in Portland, Ore. The architect for the project is Austin, Texas-based Katus LLC and the general contractor is EBCO, which is headquartered in Cameron, Texas.
