JacksonvilleVestcor recently broke ground on HarborChase of Mandarin, a luxury independent, assisted living and memory care community located off San Jose Boulevard in Jacksonville.

Business and development partners of the project include Summit Contracting Group, PQH Architects, Ameris Bank, Abbey Civil Engineers and Harbor Retirement Associates.

“From the beginning, it has been important to surround ourselves with industry experience as this is a new sector for us,” said Will Morgan, president, Vestcor. “PQH Architects and Harbor Retirement Associates are experts in senior housing and with their partnership I’m confident we will develop and maintain an exceptional community.”

“What you will see built here is a state-of-the-art expression of what we think the future of independent, assisted living and memory care will be,” said Tim Smick, president & CEO of Harbor Retirement Associates.

HarborChase, located at 12350 San Jose Blvd., will consist of 114 apartments. Amenities will include 24-hour staff, supportive services, customized programs, scheduled transportation daily, housekeeping service, concierge services and chef-prepared dining in multiple dining venues. Leasing will start in early 2017 and the community is expected to be finalized in the fall of 2017.

“This is the start of what will become a long-standing partnership with HRA and we look forward to working with them on new senior communities in the future,” added Vestcor Chairman John Rood.
