Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) June 29, 2016
A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 for Belvedere Senior Housing, a new affordable assisted living community for Indiana seniors who need some help to maintain their independence.
The community, which will be located at 321 East 90 Drive in Merrillville, will serve seniors of all incomes. It is expected to open by next fall.
The three-story, 107,000 square-foot building will house 126 private studio and one-bedroom apartments. Each of the private apartments at The Belvedere 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, The Belvedere will have a large community room, a private dining room, TV lounge, fitness area, movie theater, outdoor patio 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.
Gleason Architects, P.C. designed the community, and construction will be completed by Alston Construction. Bravo Properties developed the $23.4 million project.
When fully occupied, the community will provide 50 full-time and part-time jobs. Annual payroll with benefits is projected to be $1.4 million.
