City approves $15.7M senior-living center on east side

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Cicero-based developer has won city approval to build a $15.7 million senior health care center at 16th Street and Arlington Avenue on Indianapolis’ east side.

The city’s Metropolitan Development Commission gave its blessing Wednesday after accepting in February an offer from Mainstreet Property Group LLC to purchase the property for $912,500.

The city had owned the nine-acre parcel since September 2004, when it bought the property formerly used by Raytheon Technical Services Co. LLC for $1 from the federal government.

Nearly half of the project’s cost could be financed by $7.4 million in city-issued bonds.

Mainstreet’s plans for the center call for 70 skilled-nursing and 30 assisted-living beds.
   
The facility is expected to create up to 150 jobs, Mainstreet officials said.

The project would be Mainstreet’s first newly constructed facility in Marion County. In 2006, it purchased out of bankruptcy the Highland Health and Living Center in Indianapolis at 2926 N. Capital Ave.

The company owns or co-owns 13 senior health care centers in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, and has six more under development. It also plans to break ground on up to 12 centers by the end of the year, including a $13.3 million facility in Westfield.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
