Nelson Construction and Development is excited to share the latest senior housing community with you. The community will be located in the Prairie Trail district in Ankeny, IA and will benefit from all of the amenities and access Prairie Trail has to offer.


The development will consist of 126 apartment homes for Assisted Living and Memory Care residents, offering premium unit sizes and finishes not already found in the market, as well as our popular Carefree Living option where residents can live completely independently or choose to add any or all of our services ala carte.
