Hoosier Village Retirement Center in Zionsville announced plans Monday morning for a $32 million project that will expand its campus near Interstate 465 and Michigan Road.
The expansion, which should begin this spring and conclude in 2013, will allow the center to add 50 full-time workers, it said. The project is awaiting approval from the Zionsville Planning Department.
According to Hoosier Village’s plans, a new 90-unit apartment complex will replace its original residence hall, which was constructed in the 1960s, renovated in the 1990s and expanded in 2001. Hoosier Village currently has 197 independent-living units on its 150-acre campus.
Plans also call for a “Memory Support Center,” licensed for residential care of residents with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related conditions. It will have 36 private rooms and 7,500 square feet of common areas.
In addition, the expansion will add a new 23,700-square-foot dining center with a 250-person seating capacity, and a new community center with exercise rooms, fitness center, indoor swimming pool and locker rooms.
Hoosier Village, a not-for-profit community operated by Baptist Homes of Indiana Inc., said about 125 workers will be employed during construction. Baptist Homes of Indiana also operates Crawford Manor in Indianapolis and The Villas Apartments in Columbus.
