YAPHANK, N.Y. — A joint venture between Chelsea Senior Living and AVR Realty plans to develop a $27 million, 118-bed assisted living facility in the Long Island town of Yaphank. The joint venture is seeking governmental approval from the Yaphank Town Planning Board and economic incentives from the Town of Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency to build the community. If approved and built, it will be located within The Boulevard, a 322-acre mixed-use development. Phase I of The Boulevard is already approved, and includes a 240-unit multifamily community. Plans call for two buildings totaling 99,492 square feet, including a 77-bed building for special needs and memory care, and a 41-bed supportive care building. The developers purchased the site from Rose-Breslin Associates LLC and aim to begin construction in 2017. Based in Farnwood, N.J., Chelsea Senior Living owns and operates 13 seniors housing communities in New York and New Jersey.
