“We’re thrilled to open the newest location of Edencrest communities in Iowa’s fastest growing city. The success of our other communities demonstrates the ongoing need to take care of this generation,” said Casey Stephens, Regional Director of Operations for Highmark Senior Living. “Waukee was a natural next choice, especially in such a great location like the KeeTown Loop District and Grand Prairie Parkway, where not only will we see commercial, retail and office, but also additional multi-generational housing spur over the next 5-10 years.”
