Hoosier Village broke ground on its new Cedarwood expansion Sept. 18. Cedarwood will be a three-story building with 80 one- and two-bedroom apartments.
“Cedarwood is a $20 million project and the latest in a building blitz here at Hoosier Village to meet the demands,” Hoosier Village Executive Director Mindy Kantz said. “We have a robust waiting list, and that’s partly due to the fact we offer things other senior living communities can’t provide – a sprawling, walkable campus surrounded by natural beauty and a variety of living options on campus. Our 300-acre campus features a new Village park, pavilions, walkable paths, nature paths, a dog park and a lot of mature trees.
“These amenities and services. along with our continuum of care levels. are provided at Hoosier Village.”
Cedarwood will connect to Hoosier Village’s two restaurants, Roosevelts and Green Onion.
Hoosier Village is an affiliate of BHI Senior Living, an Indiana-based nonprofit. BHI Senior Living President and CEO John Dattilo also spoke at the groundbreaking ceremony.
“We’re going to have to stop building because we are running out of trees and wood products to name our buildings after,” Datillo said. “I have the opportunity to travel around the country and visit a lot of these types of retirement communities. I will tell you Hoosier Village is special and it’s special in a lot of ways, not just because it’s a large campus, not just because of the wonderful people who work here and provide services to you as residents, but it’s really unique in the way it presents itself. We do have a lot of greenspace, it’s a very active community, we want to try to take advantage of this space that we have.
“We want to be able to provide top-notch services and amenities to our customers. We are very excited to be a part of the Town of Zionsville. I think that’s something else that makes us special.”
Mayor Tim Haak thanked Hoosier Village for its partnership.
“We’ve always had a great relationship, and we know Hoosier Village and the residents here are a community asset for us. We see that, and as you grow, we are growing,” Haak said. “This is another exciting addition to your community and to the town. You guys offer a quality of life like no other, and I think when you look up quality of life in the dictionary, or quality of place is a new economic development term, you might as well just see a picture of Zionsville.”
Datillo said Cedarwood is planned to open in 2021. Hoosier Village will begin taking pre-reservations early next year.
