Chesapeake Court, a six-story, 155-unit building, opened this month at the Oak Crest Village Retirement Community in Parkville.
It is the fourth and final addition to Oak Crest's Town Center neighborhood and is available for immediate occupancy, according to Senior Campus Living, developers of the village.
SCL is the same firm that built and manages the 110-acre Charlestown retirement community in Catonsville that houses nearly 2,500 senior citizens.
A new skilled-nursing facility at the village called the "Care Center" is under construction and is scheduled to open by June.
Another project, Crestview Station, is scheduled for completion by the end of 1997 and its community building is expected to open by spring.
The village, which is one of the nation's fastest-growing continuing care retirement communities, recently welcomed its 1,100th resident.
The village expects to house at least 2,000 senior citizens in its independent-living apartments.
Another 300 will live in the community's assisted-living and nursing care centers when the village is completed by the end of next year.
Oak Crest Village, on 85 acres off Walther Boulevard, is designed for middle-income retirees. In addition to its various apartments, it features a medical center, entertainment and recreational facilities and social programs.
SCL also announced that it is close to acquiring sites for projects in the Washington suburbs, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
