Wellness-based development would be first of kind here

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A new health and fitness facility under construction in Avon has led to plans for an almost 30-acre mixed-use complex on the north side of U.S. 36 believed to be the first of its kind in this market.

The project, called Satori Pointe, is being marketed to potential developers as a campus where medical offices, fitness-oriented retailers and residents would co-exist.

Deeni Taylor, regional executive vice president for Bremner Duke Healthcare Real Estate, said multi-use developments holistically focused on health and well-being exist in Dallas and Raleigh but he’s not aware of any here.

Taylor, whose firm isn’t involved in the project, said health care real estate is doing better than most sectors. “We’re seeing activity in some markets pick up. Now that hospitals see what health care reform is going to look like, they’re releasing some projects and going forward.”

He said mixing health care development with retail and housing in a village concept has been successful elsewhere.
Satori Pointe, which is just east of Dan Jones Road, would serve as a front door to the 122,000-square-foot Hendricks Regional Health YMCA, which broke ground last December.

That $18 million project was billed as unique when it was announced because it’s the result of a partnership between a health care organization, Hendricks Regional Health, and a fitness organization, the YMCA. It will pair physician and outpatient services and sports medicine facilities run by Hendricks with the Y’s fitness center, gymnasium and indoor aquatics center. It’s slated to open next May.

Satori Pointe will lie on either side of a broad boulevard leading from U.S. 36 to the Hendricks Regional Health YMCA. The development’s name comes from the Japanese Buddhist term for enlightenment.

Tim Norton and Jeff Merritt of Summit Realty are the brokers for the five development sites in the complex, The sites range in size from just under four acres to more than nine acres. The shovel-ready sites are divisible if more than one user is interested in the same site. The two that front U.S. 36 are being marketed for retail use. Two others are suggested for office/professional use, and the largest site is envisioned for apartments and/or senior housing.

Merritt said there’s been strong interest in the housing parcel from independent living/senior living developers. He and Norton are pursuing bookstores, fitness apparel retailers, natural and organic grocers and restaurants that promote healthy menu items for the retail space.

“We want Avon residents to come here every day to work out, go to the office, go to the grocery,” Merritt said.

The land is owned by Hendricks Regional Health, which installed infrastructure and utilities. The asking prices for the retail parcels range from $650,000 to $850,000 an acre. The housing and office parcels are marketed for $425,000 an acre.

Merritt said it’s possible Hendricks will end up developing one of the office parcels itself.

“I believe Satori Pointe will be a model for health and wellness developments,” Dr. John Sparzo, Hendricks Regional Health’s vice president of medical affairs, said in a prepared statement.

A fitness trail will line the perimeter of the development, which also will include park space and athletic fields.

  • No Different Than Saxony in Fishers
    How is this different from the original vision of the Saxony development in Fishers? Perhaps the implementation will be more in-line with the vision, but the idea is not unique to the area.

  1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

  3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
