More Retirement Homes Coming to Lufkin

There will soon be more space for retirees in Lufkin. Pinecrest Retirement Community Thursday unveiled plans to build 43 new homes for seniors.

The Woods at Pinecrest will feature the same amenities more than 250 current Pinecrest residents enjoy, including a chapel, library, hair salons, and a grocery store.

Construction on phase one will begin in January and should be finished next summer. Residents will be able to choose from two, three, and four-bedroom homes.
