Hoosier Village in Zionsville is putting the finishing touches on a $22 million luxury apartment building designed for seniors.

Hawthorn Hall is the latest addition to not-for-profit BHI Senior Living’s 300-acre central Indiana campus. The three-story, elevator-equipped building features 100 accessible apartments and two restaurants.

Only 22 of the new units were unrented early this month.

Overall occupancy at Hoosier Village is 97 percent, officials said, outpacing the industry average of 89 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Residents have a range of living options, from a health center for those who need ongoing nursing care to single-family homes in neighborhoods like Spindle Tree—which is preparing to break ground on an expansion.

“The senior living industry is booming, especially at Hoosier Village,” Executive Director Sally Keenan said in a prepared statement. “The amenities we’re adding are in response to what we know baby boomers are looking for, and they’re responding by moving here.”

Hoosier Village recently added a 23,100-square-foot Memory Support Center and a 20,000-square-foot Community Center with an indoor pool, fitness center, exercise rooms, spa and art studio.

Indianapolis-based BHI has two other continuing-care retirement communities in the state: The Towne House in Fort Wayne and Four Seasons in Columbus.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
