Developer plans $13M senior-living center in Westfield

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Cicero-based developer Mainstreet Property Group LLC plans to build a $13.3 million senior health care center in Westfield, the city announced Wednesday morning.

The 65,000-square assisted living facility, to be located on 7.5 acres next to Grand Park, will have 100 private suites and employ about 150 people when it opens in 2012.

Westfield officials say the development will support about 209 jobs during the construction phase.

Mayor Andy Cook said Mainstreet was lured to the site because of plans for the 300-acre Grand Park sports development near State Road 32 and U.S. 31. Tax incentives were not part of the deal, the city said.

The facility will feature “hotel-style living,” “multiple social destinations” and “restaurant-style dining,” according to the developer.

Mainstreet, founded in 2002, owns or co-owns 14 properties in the Midwest, including 11 senior housing or care centers. It has another six health care facilities under development.

The company has been ranked among the fastest-growing companies in the Indianapolis area by IBJ the past two years. It had revenue of $8.1 million in 2009, up from $4.4 million in 2007.

  • Same Old
    Whats sad about 95% of these companies that they built multi-million dollar facilities and then they purchase the cheapest equipment from China or Mexico available-wheelchairs, beds, etc.. Look nice on the outside but awful for the resident on the inside!!!
  • Senior Placement
    This sounds like a great facility for seniors. Does this facility offer any in home care services for seniors? That would be something I would be interested in. Thank you
  • Employment
    How would I get in touch with Westfield Health Center (newest project) for employment?

    Please respond, thank you

    The old folks can sit on the front porch and give the whipper snappers a good frowning. At least until Matlock comes on. "You darn kids better keep that ball out of our yard!"
  • I don't make the connection
    What do residents at a senior health care facility care about being next to a sports park - I think Cook is stretching the merits of the sports park a bit!!

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
