Construction has begun on the $61 million Watercrest at Dominion, a luxury retirement community near The Dominion that is scheduled for completion in June.

The development by Integrated Real Estate Group of Southlake will add more than 330 senior living apartments — 230 independent and 105 assisted — to the area.

“San Antonio continues to grow and is well-recognized as a major retirement destination,” CEO and President Rick Simmons said in a statement. “It’s not unusual to see the Alamo City ranked high in national lists for ‘Best Cities for Retirees.’”

Construction began on the four-building complex in the spring. Residents ages 55 and older are scheduled to begin moving in this June.

Residents will have access to an outdoor pool designed for water aerobics and swimming laps, and a communal building featuring a commercial kitchen, coffee shop, theater, fitness room and beauty-nail salon.

Watercrest at Dominion, 6870 Heuermann Road, is the second development in the San Antonio area for Integrated Real Estate Group. Its first, Watercrest at Alamo Ranch, opened in February.

The project is not associated with The Dominion, the affluent gated community of roughly 950 single family homes east of Interstate 10 from the Watercrest development.
