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 never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
