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. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
