Oxford Grand Assisted Living & Memory Care to open in McKinney, Texas

Oxford Senior Living has started construction on another new assisted living and memory care project, this time in McKinney, Texas.

“It’s going to be very similar to what we’ve done in Wichita at the Oxford Grand,” says Coryanne Graham, director of marketing and brand.

“We’ve had huge success at the Oxford Grand in west Wichita,” she says. “It’s a great product.”

Kansas City-based CBC Real Estate Group is partnering with Oxford on the $15 million project in McKinney, which is north of Dallas.

The 70,000-square-foot McKinney Oxford Grand Assisted Living & Memory Care will have 51 assisted living apartments and 22 memory care suites, which are for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

There will be restaurant-style dining, a coffee bar, a fitness center and a demonstration kitchen, among other things.

This makes Oxford’s second combination assisted living and memory care project.

The company’s Oxford Glen Memory Care product is solely for people who have Alzheimer’s and dementia. There are two Oxford Glens in Texas with one more under construction there and another in the works in Oklahoma.

The McKinney Oxford Grand is expected to be ready in September 2016.

Crossland Construction is the contractor, and LK Architecture is the architect.

Graham says market data showed McKinney is a good market for the Oxford Grand product.

“It was a natural fit.”
