MorningStar Senior Living on Thursday announced plans to enter the Texas markets via a project in Houston with real estate firm Hines.

The 112-unit MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at River Oaks has an anticipated groundbreaking in the first quarter of next year and is expected to be completed in September 2021, according to the company. MorningStar and Hines will co-invest, co-develop and co-own the community.

“We continue to establish the MorningStar brand in fast-growing regions in step with the expanding need for quality senior living, responsive to the desire of seniors to stay in their neighborhood, close to family and friends and the attractions they’ve come to enjoy,” MorningStar founder and CEO Ken Jaeger said in a statement.

The company currently has communities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico and Oregon.
