Retirement community developer Aegis Living plans to build a new assisted living facility near downtown Bellevue.

The company bought the site, at 148 102nd Ave. S.E., in August. It already has demolished a 1950s apartment complex on the site and hired a contractor, a spokeswoman said.

The new community will have 68 assisted-lived apartments and 18 units for people needing memory care.

Aegis Living already operates 11 other senior communities in the Puget Sound area.
