Mainstreet plans $9.2M nursing home on northwest side

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Carmel-based Mainstreet Property Group plans to build a new 100-bed “health care resort” on 7 acres at 5404 Georgetown Road in Indianapolis, according to a tax-abatement request filed with the city.

The $9.25-million, 65,000-square-foot nursing-home and assisted-living facility would feature an Internet cafe, movie theaters and restaurant-style dining with an on-site chef, Mainstreet spokeswoman Kate Snedeker said. About 90 percent of the beds would be in private rooms. Seventy of the beds would be for skilled nursing, and 30 would be for assisted-living residents.

Mainstreet seeks a three-year property-tax abatement that would save the company about $468,000, according to a preliminary resolution that will go before the Metropolitan Development Commission on June 5. The site is not in a designated economic revitalization area.

The city’s Department of Metropolitan Development staff estimates the construction will increase the property value by nearly $6.5 million, resulting in about $156,000 a year in new property-tax revenue after the abatement expires. The property is now being taxed at $283 per year.

Mainstreet would lease the property to a third-party operator, which hasn’t yet been identified. Mainstreet estimates the facility operator would employ 80 people, earning an average $17.30 per hour.

Mainstreet this month was approved to receive state economic development incentives for moving its headquarters from Cicero to Carmel. The fast-growing company founded by Zeke Turner, the son of Indiana lawmaker Eric Turner, has built multiple senior-living facilities in Indiana and Illinois.

  • This would be fantastic for the area.
    This area has been up and down hill for years. Some of the ups have been the Best Buy, Staples and WalMart that were added. This would be a tremendous boost to this area economically. Hopefully a tenant at the former Rite-Aid store will quickly take shop. This would also be great for the new walgreens on the corner. This area needs more good things happening!

  1. I'm a CPA who works with a wide range of companies (through my firm K.B.Parrish & Co.); however, we work with quite a few car dealerships, so I'm fairly interested in Fatwin (mentioned in the article). Does anyone have much information on that, or a link to such information? Thanks.

  2. Historically high long-term unemployment, unprecedented labor market slack and the loss of human capital should not be accepted as "the economy at work [and] what is supposed to happen" and is certainly not raising wages in Indiana. See Chicago Fed Reserve: goo.gl/IJ4JhQ Also, here's our research on Work Sharing and our support testimony at yesterday's hearing: goo.gl/NhC9W4

  3. I am always curious why teachers don't believe in accountability. It's the only profession in the world that things they are better than everyone else. It's really a shame.

  4. It's not often in Indiana that people from both major political parties and from both labor and business groups come together to endorse a proposal. I really think this is going to help create a more flexible labor force, which is what businesses claim to need, while also reducing outright layoffs, and mitigating the impact of salary/wage reductions, both of which have been highlighted as important issues affecting Hoosier workers. Like many other public policies, I'm sure that this one will, over time, be tweaked and changed as needed to meet Indiana's needs. But when you have such broad agreement, why not give this a try?

  5. I could not agree more with Ben's statement. Every time I look at my unemployment insurance rate, "irritated" hardly describes my sentiment. We are talking about a surplus of funds, and possibly refunding that, why, so we can say we did it and get a notch in our political belt? This is real money, to real companies, large and small. The impact is felt across the board; in the spending of the company, the hiring (or lack thereof due to higher insurance costs), as well as in the personal spending of the owners of a smaller company.
