The Masonic Care Community is unveiling the first phase of an $18 million construction project to add more senior housing options to the Mohawk Valley.

A ground breaking ceremony was held Friday afternoon for the Neighborhoods at Acacia Village.

The Neighborhoods will add Waterside Cottages and Garden Town Homes to the 440 acre Masonic Care campus in Utica.

One and two bedroom options are available and the homes each have their own garage.

Construction of the additional homes is underway and is expected to be completed by late summer of next year.
