A local construction company plans to add hundreds of new homes to specific retirement-focused communities around North Texas.

Roanoke-based construction company Integrity Group announced plans to build roughly 200 homes throughout Ladera retirement communities in 2023.

Ladera facilities are built to serve adults aged 55 and above throughout the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex. The communities are designed around low-maintenance mid-range homes with polished landscaping, according to a company description

“We never ever take it for granted nor take it lightly, but in most cases, this is people’s last home, and we want to make sure it’s an incredible experience for them,” John Delin, CEO of Integrity Group, told The Dallas Morning News.

Integrity Group homes built within Ladera communities usually cost between $400,000-$500,000 and are under planned development in Fort Worth, Little Elm, Mansfield, Prosper, and Rockwall, according to the company.

“Cities have done a phenomenal job of building up, going from the starter home to the move-up home, all the way to the McMansion; and along the way, everybody forgot about what happens when these people are tired of taking care of the home, the pool, the yard, and don’t need 4,000 or 5,000 [square] feet anymore,” Delin said.

“And that’s where we come in.”

Integrity has multiple Ladera construction projects underway or in the works. Ladera’s active adult communities can be found in Prosper, Little Elm, Mansfield (The Reserve), Rockwall, and Fort Worth (Tavolo Park).

Ladera’s community in Prosper is located on North Custer Road north of Highway 380 and features 244 model homes and a multitude of amenities. Amenities include “fitness centers, exercise classes, pickleball courts, pools, [and] putting greens,” according to the company website.

Homes at this location sell for around $450,000.

Ladera’s 263-home community in Little Elm is neatly located on a peninsula in Lake Lewisville and includes identical amenities. Homes in this community range from the $370,000s to $500,000s.

As cities around North Texas continue to expand and grow due to the demand for new developments, Dallas is growing at a slower pace. This is due in part to the City’s failure to optimize its building permit process, which significantly impedes construction progress.
