SUGAR LAND, MISSOURI CITY - Two new communities for seniors are coming to Sugar Land and Missouri City, where City officials say there will be a growing demand for such accommodations.

In Missouri City, The Huntington at Sienna Ranch is in the planning stages at Sienna Ranch Rd. west of Hwy. 6 with 149 units for residents age 62 and older. 

Situated in Imperial Market in Sugar Land off of Hwy. 90, an active adult luxury living community called Overture at Sugar Land is under construction and expected to open at the end of this year. 

The community will feature 200 units for residents age 55 and older.

The Huntington at Sienna Ranch apartments will feature amenities including a pool, fitness facilities, a senior activities center, community space, on-site transportation and single-story cottages that have either one or two bedrooms and garages.

Project developers anticipate construction to take about 14 to 15 months and for some of the first units to be available January 2018.

Neither the latest Huntington nor The Overture will have any skilled care for its residents because both communities are strictly for independent living.

In 2010, 15,571 residents age 55 and older were living in Missouri City, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. By 2014, census estimates projected 17,685 were living in Missouri City.

In Sugar Land, 20,300 residents age 55 and older were living in the city in 2010 compared with 22,584 in 2014, according to the 2010 Census and its 2014 estimates, respectively.
