MorseLife Health System will break ground Thursday for a 317-unit apartment building at its 37-acre campus in West Palm Beach.

MorseLife, a not-for-profit provider of health care programs for senior citizens, will build the 10-story Tower at MorseLife with one- and two-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 780 square feet to 1,500 square feet.

The $77.6 million apartment building, expected to open in the summer of 2017, is designed for active seniors who want easy access to food service, cleaning service and medical care.

The architect for the building is Perkins Eastman andf the construction contractor is Whiting-Turner.

The building site is adjacent to a senior residence called Tradition of the Palm Beaches, which MorseLife opened in 2004.

At its West Palm Beach campus, MorseLife also has built the Sondra & David S. Mack Pavilion for Short-Term Rehabilitation, which opened in January 2014, and a facility called Memory Care Assisted Living, which opened in June of this year.
