Construction to Begin for New Affordable Assisted Lifestyle Community in Indianapolis
BRADLEY, IL–A groundbreaking ceremony was held Sept. 25 for Glasswater Creek of Plainfield, a new affordable assisted living community for Indianapolis seniors who need some help to maintain their independence.
The community, which will be located at 10480 Glasswater Lane, will serve seniors of all incomes. The new road is located at State Road 40 (Washington Street) and Ronald Reagan Parkway.
Glasswater Creek is expected to open by the fall of 2019.
The four-story, 104,000 square-foot building will house 131 private studio and one-bedroom apartments.
Each of the private apartments at Glasswater Creek will feature a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning units, and an emergency alert system.
In addition, Glasswater Creek will have a café, private dining room, lounges, fitness center, theater, physical therapy room, library/computer room and other amenities.
Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, will be on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The community will be managed by Gardant Management Solutions. It will further expand Gardant’s mission of providing residents with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve in addition to the help with medications and personal assistance they need, says Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant.
American Structurepoint designed the community, and construction will be completed by T&W Construction. The multimillion project was developed by Community Reinvestment Foundation.
When fully occupied, the community will provide nearly 70 full-time and part-time jobs. Annual payroll with benefits is projected to be over $2 million.
A Glasswater Creek community in Lafayette, Indiana opened this summer.
Other Indiana assisted living communities managed by Gardant include Belvedere Senior Housing in Merrillville, Hellenic Senior Living in Indianapolis and New Albany, Oasis at 30th in Indianapolis and The Lodge at Summers Pointe in Winchester. Projects under construction include Hellenic Senior Living of Elkhart, Heritage Woods of Noblesville and Oasis at 56th in Indianapolis.
