​AUSTIN - ​Buckner Villas, a 25-acre senior living community in North Austin, has broken ground on a $29.8 million expansion. 

The expansion will add 122,331 sf to the independent living facility on the campus, called GreenRidge, at 11110 Tom Adams Dr., near Braker Ln. and Dessau Rd., in addition to the renovation of 16,010 sf of communal areas.

The project will add 69 one- and two-bedroom apartments and 70 underground parking spaces and increase capacity by about 35 percent—from about 400 residents a year to 538.

Construction is expected to finish by December 2017. 

Doyle Antle, executive director of Buckner Villas, said the move is framed as a way to prepare for the large number of aging baby boomers. ​

The facility is owned by Dallas-based nonprofit Buckner Retirement Services Inc. ​
