Luxury senior living coming soon to Rice Village

Bridgewood Property Company announces luxury senior living coming soon to Rice Village.

The Village of Southampton, a luxury senior housing community, is projected to begin construction 1 block from Rice Village in late 2017. The community is being developed by Houston-based Bridgewood Property Company. Jim Gray, as founder and owner of Bridgewood, has focused exclusively on developing senior living communities for more than 20 years. In addition to the development, Mr. Gray’s management company, Retirement Center Management, will be responsible for the operations of The Village of Southampton upon completion of construction.

The Village of Southampton will have seventeen floors of apartment homes with beautiful skyline views of Downtown Houston, Rice University, Herman Park and The Texas Medical Center. The state-of-the-art senior housing community is expected to be completed in 2019, bringing independent living, assisted living and memory care options to the Rice Village neighborhood.

“It’s unique to have a senior’s site in the densely populated urban core, particularly within a well-known area minutes from The Texas Medical Center, Rice Village, Hermann Park and religious institutions,” said Mr. Gray. “When we looked at the five-mile radius around the site, it was clear that this long-established Houston submarket was very much underserved in quality senior living options.”

The Village of Southampton will serve the residents of Southampton, West U, Bellaire, Rice University and Braes Heights. The Village’s premier location and close proximity to Rice University will provide the opportunity for the community to have an educational exchange program and keep residents engaged with the academic and athletic programs at Rice University. The Village of Southampton amenities will include an indoor heated pool & spa, a fitness center, a movie theater, full-service salon, outdoor terraces, secured garage parking for residents and guests, valet and concierge services, formal & private dining, Bistro and sky lounge/bar with numerous additional living areas to encourage socialization and ensure that residents Live Life Well®. Shuttle service to the Medical Center will also be provided.

“We are excited about our plans for The Village of Southampton and expect to receive positive response from prospective residents and adult children who live in the area and are looking for a seniors’ facility in close proximity to their longstanding neighborhoods, friends and families,” said, Lynn Wallace, Sr. V.P. of Sales & Marketing for Retirement Center Management.
