Frisco (Collin County) — Presidium announced Tuesday the start of construction on Artistry at Edgestone, the first senior living community of its kind to be developed in Frisco.
Once completed, the 188-unit project will be the city’s only age-restricted luxury community with freestanding independent living cottages.
Artistry at Edgestone is on 18 acres. It will be a gated community designed to balance the needs of today’s seniors who desire an active, maintenance-free lifestyle. More than 25 percent of the site will be open space.
It is located near just west of Legacy Drive, across from William and Abbie Allen Elementary School, and south of Stonebrook Parkway. It is near Plano’s burgeoning Legacy West development and a short driving distance from The Star, The Gate, Ward Park, Frisco Town Square, Stonebriar Centre and Frisco Station.

The development will consist of a 133,898-square-foot one three-story residential building with elevators, and seven one-story bungalows with cottage units. It include 198 parking spaces, of which 60 will be garage spaces and 12 dedicated for the handicapped.
The cottage units range in area from 4,050 to 5,100 square feet and will feature open floor plans with 9-9.5-foot ceilings, granite countertops and tile backsplashes, wood plank and ceramic tile flooring, energy-efficient appliances and light fixtures, washer and dryer connections, walk-in closets, and private patios and balconies.
Additionally, this project is designed to achieve certification by National Green Building Standards (NGBS), verifying the campus’ high performance in six key areas: site design, resource efficiency, water efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and building operations and maintenance.
“Presidium has taken a modern approach to providing state-of-the-art amenities that provide a greatly sought-after environment, all within close proximity to the plethora of local attractions Frisco has to offer,” said John Griggs, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of Presidium.
Artistry at Edgestone’s community will feature many high-end amenities throughout, including multi-purpose club rooms, a resort-style swimming pool, a fitness and wellness center, a library and cyber lounge, a media and game rooms, a hair salon, an arts and crafts center, pavilions, a bocce ball court, a walking trail, a dog park and a resident gardening area with shade structures.
Edgestone’s residents will also have access to a full calendar of services and programs.
“The spacious community was designed to offer residents an open environment, and with its prime location – being nestled within some of the most impressive parks and walking trails in the country, it is perfect for mature adults who enjoy the outdoors and wish to maintain an active lifestyle,” added Griggs.
