Development of 67 new homes at Grants Hill Court, Uckfield, is progressing according to plan.
The £10m retirement living scheme, being developed by Wealden District Council, is on target for completion in December.
Grants Hill Court in Oaklea Way, has been designed to meet the needs of people in their later years.
The building will include a communal lounge, mobility buggy store, and an assisted bathroom.
It will also have two internal gardens – a cloistered garden and an activities garden – together with outside space for all 67 apartments in the form of large winter gardens or private balconies.
Formerly the site had 42 homes which were demolished to make way for the new development.
Lead contractor is Sussex-based Thakeham Client.
A giant crane on site has dominated the Uckfield western skyline for months.
