Dallas-based Merriman Anderson/Architects has been chosen to build one of the first communities in North Texas for adults with special needs.
Daymark Living will be a 144,852 square-foot community with day programming and full-time living offerings for adults with learning differences or intellectual delays, according to the Waxahachie Daily Light.
“The Daymark Living project is important in so many ways,” maa Founder Jerry Merriman told the Daily Light.” It fills a need for families with adult children who need to transition to independent living with opportunities to learn and grow while allowing the parents peace of mind that their children are well cared for.”
“Our team is honored to be part of a new destination that is paving the way in a much-needed sector for adults with special needs.”
The Waxahachie community at Cantrell Street and Interstate 35 East can house 200 residents with a list of amenities including resort-style pools, sports courts, fitness centers, computer labs, and green space, according to the newspaper.
“Our team is honored to be part of a new destination that is paving the way in a much-needed sector for adults with special needs,” Merriman said.
Daymark Living is one of many special needs projects on the horizon for North Texas.
Denton County will be home to a new 7,100-square-foot community center focused on catering to the needs of adults with autism. Plano-based My Possibilities is expanding as well, building a campus for its Lifelong Learning Program, which is designed for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
