Oxford Senior Living is set to break ground this month on an assisted living community in the Kansas City metro area, according to a news release.

The Wichita-based company said Wednesday that it plans to start work next week on a $15 million complex in the Shoal Creek Valley area of Kansas City, Mo.

The 70,000-square-foot facility, which will be called the Oxford Grand Assisted Living and Memory Care community, is targeted to be complete sometime in early 2017, the release said. The building will be near Shoal Creek Parkway and Northeast 82nd Terrace on the northeast side of Kansas City.

Oxford’s planned new community will offer 51 assisted living apartments for seniors, along with 22 units that will be dedicated to those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, according to the release.

The facility is being modeled after the Oxford Grand complex in west Wichita, which opened in 2013. The contractor for the project is Crossland Construction, and the designer is LK Architecture out of Wichita.

Crossland is headquartered in Columbus, Kan., with offices in Wichita, Denver, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Arkansas and Texas. The Oxford Grand in Kansas City is a joint venture between Oxford and CBC Real Estate Group.

Oxford develops and operates senior housing complexes, with projects completed or under construction in Kansas, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma.
