Construction has begun on more than 100 housing units for senior citizens in Dundalk.

Baltimore County officials gathered this week for a ground breaking for the Greens at Logan Field, a 102-unit development being built on the site of Baltimore's first municipal airfield after World War I.

The Enterprise Homes development, scheduled for completion in 2014, is for senior citizens who earn 60 percent or less of the area median income.

The $15.2 million project is set to include mostly one-bedroom apartments, plus 18 two-bedroom units.

The county's financial support for the development includes a $500,000 contribution through the federal HOME Investment Partnership program, which provides grants for affordable housing.
