The towns of Wyckoff and Hawthorne are set to welcome 199 senior living units by 2020 as part of the Christian Health Care Center that broke ground last week, according to NorthJersey.com. First proposed back in 2009 as a 258-unit complex, the so-called Vista project is set on 19 acres. The Christian Health Center said that nearly 200 active seniors had signed a leasing agreement by the time the facility broke ground on April 9. NorthJersey.com reported the project is now part of a 78-acre development site, with 62 acres in Bergen County and 16 in Passaic County. The Christian Health Care Center tapped Lecesse Construction Service to carry out the development. NorthJersey.com noted the project underwent 27 months of hearings in Wyckoff before its final size received approval in 2013. Nine more months of hearings ensued when the developer negotiated with the township of Hawthorne. The senior living community, one of several to come online in the Tri-State area in recent months, includes 20 floor-plan configurations ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet. [NorthJersey.com]
