Located near the Central Texas Medical Center and other medical services, plans for a new assisted living and memory care facility are underway.

Aiming to address a growing population in San Marcos, and a growing senior population in surrounding areas, real estate developer Investcor has acquired 800 Leah Ave. for the 71,000-square-foot single story building to accommodate senior citizens.

With 90 rooms—66 assisted living and 24 memory care rooms—and 24-hour trained staff, the new assisted living project is expected to break ground in November. A name for the facility has yet to be determined, but developers expect the project to be completed by December 2019.

The building will feature a bistro, fully staffed kitchen, a lounge area, chapel, media room, salon, fire pit, courtyard and a garden. Senior residents can participate in daily activities, such as gardening and social outings.
