The new scheme, located on Darkes Lane, will comprise a mix of one and two bedroom apartments exclusively for the over 70s in Potters Bar.
McCarthy & Stone's Assisted Living developments offer the independence of retaining ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for the over 70s.
In addition, they offer flexible care and support packages, including domestic assistance.
Facilities include a shared lounge, an on site restaurant, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated estate manager ensures the smooth running of the development and staff are on site 24 hours a day. There is also a security entrance system plus 24 hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for both residents and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.
In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
Sharon Callcut, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, said: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Assisted Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 70s in Potters Bar make the most of later life. When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features."
With more than 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain's leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 in 1,000 different schemes.
