Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm to Open Near The Summit Shopping Center
By John Lynch
The Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm retirement community might be the ideal spot for astute, on-the-go seniors looking for upscale amenities and an ideal location in the heart of Lexington’s shopping, dining and entertainment district.
Located at the corner Nicholasville Road and Man o’ War Boulevard, Legacy Reserve, which opens in 2017, will feature 114 units for Independent Living and will add 38 Personal Care and 15 Memory Care units.
Highlights of the new community will include the only heated, indoor, salt-water swimming pool in Lexington, a sports bar, day spa for hair and nail appointments, exercise room and all-day dining.
The community will feature high-end features unique to a retirement community, according to Jacqueline Kennedy, Director of Sales & Marketing at Legacy Reserve.
The company also has hired Carol Brinegar as Executive Director. The women have 50 years combined experience in the elder care field, including the past 14 years together at Richmond Place in Lexington.
“Legacy Reserve will appeal to very independent seniors who are vibrant and active, and are looking to downsize in a safe and secure environment that will augment their busy social life,” Kennedy said. “It will feel like living in a resort.”
She called the location optimal because it is across the street from The Summit retail development that will feature high end shopping and dining when it opens next year.
“Not only will we offer a busy social calendar at the community, but our residents will keep their connections with the community and stay just as active as their peers without having to worry about cooking and cleaning and yard work,” Kennedy said.
The location also offers a unique relationship with another retirement community – The Willows at Fritz Farm, which is only steps away from Legacy Reserve and will offer skilled nursing care.
“We will have a working relationship with The Willows, which could benefit our residents if they should need higher levels of care,” Kennedy said.
Atlas Senior Living officials believe their new community is an ideal fit for the needs of people living in the Bluegrass.
Said Scott Goldberg of Atlas Senior Living: “We have been working tirelessly to capture the true essence of Lexington’s distinct culture and are excited to offer an independent senior living experience unlike any other in the area.”
Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm will be an upscale Independent Living retirement community with high-end amenities and the only indoor, heated salt-water pool in Lexington.
