A groundbreaking ceremony will be held this Thursday for The Legends at Hazeltine, a $30 million senior living and care community in Chaska.
Located at the northeast corner of Highway 41 and Hazeltine Boulevard in the southwestern suburb, the project is the result of a partnership between Ridgeview Medical Center and Intergenerational Living and Health Care Inc., a non-profit group.
The first phase of development involves 125 apartments of independent and assisted living, memory care and care suites, which will open in September 2014. One- and two-bedroom apartments will have full kitchens and washers and dryers. Some units will feature fireplaces.
In addition, the first phase will include three types of dining facilities (formal, casual and pub), a 150-seat theater, indoor pool, spa and beauty salon, fitness center, medical office, fireside lounge, library, game room, arts and crafts room, business center, sundry shop and a chapel/meditation room. Four-season porches will be located in the common areas throughout the building, and an outdoor terrace and fire pit will overlook the Chaska Par 30 golf course, according to a news release.
Future plans for the community include an outpatient rehabilitation and sub-acute transitional care center.
The Goodman Group of Chaska will develop and manage the project.
