Westminster Village has celebrated the groundbreaking of a new 54-unit senior care community at 1741 N. Salisbury in West Lafayette, on a site previously occupied by IU Health Arnett.
According to the Inside Indiana Business, the Terraces of Westminster Village project, for which pre-sales have begun, entails an investment of $36 million.
Upon completion, the facility will offer an all-new living option nicknamed “hybrid homes,” which combines the advantages of single family home and apartment living.
“These 54 new living options–18 in each building–combine the best of a single-family home, because of their size and amenities, and apartment living, because residents will enjoy worry-free living, leaving the grounds care, monthly housekeeping service, and interior and exterior maintenance to us,” said Dawn Walker, director of sales and marketing.
The Terraces of Westminster Village will consist of three buildings, each with an enclosed parking garage with electric vehicle recharging stations, storage for residents, a multi-functional terrace at the top for outdoor enjoyment, and a variety of amenities, including a 24,000-square-foot fitness and wellness center offering exercise equipment, group classes and educational programs.
“Our residents like to keep active and stay healthy, and this will be a center for achieving and maintaining their health goals,” Walker added.
The new luxury homes will range in size from 1,655 square feet to 2,095 square feet. Each will have 9-foot interior ceilings, a large balcony or patio, a four-season room and a gas log fireplace. Other interior features include high-end countertops and flooring, washer and dryer, and multi-purpose kitchen island.
Residents also have the option of purchasing a dining plan, additional housekeeping services, home security system, laundry services and other amenities, including gas cook tops, Jacuzzi tubs, heated bathroom floors, crown molding and custom closet built-ins. And since the homes are not yet built, they can also select lighting, countertops, cabinets, appliances and flooring.
Westminster Village first opened in 1976 as a continuing-care community. Expanded and renovated, the 42-acre property now hosts 350 residents who live in single-family houses, independent-living apartments, assisted-living apartments and The Health Center.
