Senior Campus Living of Catonsville announced yesterday that it will begin construction in June of a $250 million, 2,625-resident retirement community in Tinton Falls, N.J.

The company has three other senior complexes -- Charlestown in Catonsville, Oak Crest Village in Parkville and Henry Ford Village in Dearborn, Mich. It will also begin construction in June on a $321-million, 2,100-resident campus in Springfield, Va.

Charlestown, begun in 1983 and now housing 2,500, is the "prototype" for the other developments, said Mel Tansill, an SCL spokesman -- containing units providing different levels of care for elderly residents.

Plans call for SCL to launch two such complexes each year.

Tansill said the New Jersey community, named Seabrook Village, will be targeted at "middle-income" elderly, as are the other SCL campuses.

Typically, he said, residents pay a refundable entrance fee of $56,000 to $225,000 and a monthly fee of $750 to $1,200, which includes one meal a day. The fees vary based on location and on the size of the unit, he said.

Seabrook Village plans call for 1,625 independent living apartments as well as an assisted living facility and a nursing center. It will also have social and recreational facilities.

It is expected to take eight years to complete. The Springfield community will take five years. Construction of Oak Crest, begun a year and a half ago, will be completed next year, Tansill said. With 1,200 residents currently, it is planned for 2,100.
