WHITESTOWN -

A more than $10 million skilled nursing facility is moving forward in Whitestown. The town council and redevelopment commission Thursday approved an economic development agreement for Carmel-based Mainstreet Property Group LLC, which outlines the 96-bed, eight building project.

The town is planning up to $600,000 in infrastructure work around the development, which includes a new access road for the 10.5-acre lot. Mainstreet Communications Manager Ashley Mattox says "Mainstreet is developing a new health care property under the skilled nursing licensure, which will have a tremendous impact on the community and surrounding areas. Mainstreet is constantly innovating and creating new products that align with their mission of transforming lives, and this new property will do just that."

The approval follows the go-ahead earlier this month from the town council for another senior-focused development: the 174-unit Anson Senior Living community from Colorado-based Spectrum Retirement Communities LLC, one of the many projects in the Anson development corridor in the Boone County town.

Construction on the Mainstreet project is slated to begin in June and could be complete in the spring or Summer of 2018. The Spectrum project is expected to wrap up in 2018.
