The development in Ketley, Telford, will create 86 extra care apartments for residents as young as 55 plus 12 apartments for people with learning difficulties.
The Telford scheme is set to be finished in autumn 2014. It has been partly funded by the Homes & Communities Agency and is being delivered in partnership with Telford and Wrekin Council. The new extra care scheme, set in landscaped gardens, will feature communal facilities including a restaurant, lounge, gym and hair salon.
The project, designed by Brewster Bye Architects, is taking place as part of a £60m four-year partnership between Seddon and Sanctuary, which is planning to build more than 700 homes across the Midlands.
