Construction is scheduled to begin Wednesday on a $65 million senior living and health care development in the Northland.

The complex, called the Tiffany Springs Senior Community, will include 300 residential units designed for all levels of senior care — independent living, assisted living, rehabilitation services and memory care.

Tutera Senior Living & Health Care is developing the 14-acre project at 9191 N. Ambassador Drive. A formal groundbreaking is scheduled for Wednesday, and the complex is expected to open in summer 2017.

The continuum-of-care community is located near St. Luke’s North Hospital.

Construction partners on the Tiffany Springs project are Nearing Staats Prelogar & Jones Architects, Lutjen Inc. and Luke Draily Construction Co. Tutera said it hired studioSIX5, which specializes in senior living interior design.

Tiffany Springs is the second senior living development in the Northland to start construction this month. Developers began work last week on a $66 million first phase of Norterre, a residential and wellness community near Liberty Hospital that features housing options for seniors, young families and active adults.

Tutera Senior Living & Health, which is locally owned, operates 47 senior-living communities in 13 states.
