A state-of-the-art retirement community is being planned for Tewksbury, with construction set to begin some time in 2013.
Hawthorn Retirement Group announced last week it had reached a deal with Colson & Colson Construction to build the $10 million complex.
The development, which is tentatively being called the Tewksbury Retirement Residence, will be located on a 10-acre parcel of land at Main Street and Victor Drive near the Wynn Middle School. Frontage will be on Main Street.
According to Hawthorn spokesperson Catherine Arthur, plans are for a three-story, 113,906 sq. ft. complex. It will feature 126 apartment suites, ranging from studio apartments to two-bedroom.
"We have completed our land use process and we will be wrapping up the site and building permits early in 2013," said Arthur. She added that a construction date has not yet been set.
The month-to-month rent for residents includes all utilities except for a personal phone line, said Arthur. It also includes three meals a day prepared by an onsite executive chef, activities and other amenities such as a movie theater, fitness center, beauty shop, billiards room and a library.
Hawthorn Retirement Group was started in 2000 and is based in Vancouver, Wash. The group has developed and manages 35 such retirement communities in 17 states in the USA, as well as four in Canada and three in Great Britain. Massachusetts facilities are located in Beverly and Westborough.
