Mainstreet signs operator for new health care properties

A Cicero-based developer has signed a national senior-living company to operate four properties it plans for Indiana.

Mainstreet Property Group LLC said Tuesday that it has entered into a joint venture with Des Moines-based LCS, parent of Life Care Services, for new projects in Wabash, Avon, Westfield and Crawfordsville.

Construction on Wabash Health and Wellness Suites, a $15 million nursing and assisted-living property, is under way. The projects are relatively small in scale—Wabash will have 70 skilled nursing and rehabilitation suites, and 30 assisted-living apartments.

LCS offers long-term care and rehab at most of the properties it manages, and the Mainstreet prototype allows it to extend those services to smaller cities, LCS Executive Vice President Rick Exline said.

Earlier in May, Mainstreet filed a prospectus for a new publicly traded company called HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust, which would be traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Mainstreet is seeking to raise $110 million, according to a preliminary prospectus.

The Wabash project would be one of nine properties, along with six more in Canada, that would be part of the new REIT, a Mainstreet spokeswoman said.

The Mainstreet-LCS project site in Westfield is adjacent to Grand Park, and the site in Avon is at 10307 East County Road 100 North. Neither of those projects will be part of the new REIT.

Earlier this year, Mainstreet received approval from the city of Indianapolis to build a $15.7 million senior health care center at 16th Street and Arlington Avenue on the city's east side. The Metropolitan Development Commission approved the project in February after accepting Mainstreet Property Group LLC’s offer to purchase the property for $912,500.

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

Overall, the company owns or co-owns at least 13 senior health care centers in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, and has at least six more under development. It also plans to break ground on up to 12 centers by the end of the year.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
