Carmel senior-living project to create 340 jobs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard on Tuesday unveiled details of a multimillion-dollar project expected to create more than 340 jobs over the next two years.

He was joined by representatives of St. Vincent Health and The Barrington of Carmel, an 18-acre senior-living community being developed at 116th Street and Guilford Road. The 320,000-square-foot facility is expected to open in 2013.

The project is expected to generate 200 construction-related jobs. When the facility is completed, it will employ 140 full-time workers with estimated annual compensation totaling $6 million.

Billed as a “one-of-a-kind partnership,” the community and St. Vincent are collaborating to offer Barrington residents access to health care services at a flat, monthly rate.

St. Vincent and the Barrington "share many important philosophies and approaches when it comes to serving Indiana residents,” Raymond Goodman, CEO of Mayflower Communities Inc., the not-for-profit developer of the community, said in a prepared statement.

The Barrington will offer a range of other support for its residents, from skilled nursing care facilities and a dedicated memory-support unit to assisted- and independent-living apartments.

The number of Americans age 65 and older will explode by 76 percent over the next 20 years, according to a 2008 projection by the U.S. Census Bureau. The number of senior Hoosiers should grow by 52 percent in that same time span.

That growth will take seniors from being one in every seven people now, to one in every five.

The Barrington already has invested more than $10 million to prepare for construction. The total project cost was not disclosed.

Brainard said the operation will spend about $2 million a year on local goods and services after it opens.

“The development of The Barrington in Hamilton County will substantially benefit the economy, creating job opportunities and increasing economic spending,” Brainard said in the statement.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
